prepare to get your jealous pants on because i have some bragging to do.

in case you're new around these parts...meet sawyer. the most perfect, gorgeous, sweet-tempered, happy, lovely three-month old farm gal there ever was.

these are the facts. the truth. i can't lie.
i've said it before...i didn't know babies could be this amazingly wonderful. and when i say amazingly wonderful, i mean easy-breezy. she has got to be the easiest baby in all the land of babies. 

and did i mention she's beautiful and has the sweetest smile that she shares with us all. the. time? yes...smiles for days.

i've read before that parents have this weird sensation that they want to nibble on their babies...and i'm here to say that's accurate.

i want to nibble all of her perfection right up. i could just burry my face in her neck and smell her all day long. 

did things just get weird? no judgement.

nicknames | muffin, bitty, bitty mc-bittles, bittles, sister

weight | when muffin was born she was in the 14th percentile for weight. itty-bitty, right? well, at her two month appointment it was found out she's jumped to nearly the 60th percentile for weight. when it comes to nursing, our gal doesn't mess around...or maybe it means i was eating too much ice cream?

sleep | more bragging...and i can't even help it. my gal has been quite the sleeper. she goes down at 7 pm each night. i wake her up between 10 and 10:30 pm for a quick nursing session, and then i wake her up again around 5 am for another round.

now, i have actually been toying with the idea of staying awake after she eats at 5 am to get a workout in, but i have yet to actually execute that plan. i'll keep you posted.

napping has been a bit trickier. i've been really lax about getting her on a napping schedule because we've been on the go so much lately. i have noticed that she definitely takes a nap around 9 am, 12:30 pm, and again around 4 pm...but those naps happen in super random places. sometimes she's on her little pod pillow (which apparently is a big no-no), sometimes in her crib, and sometimes in her car seat. oh well. once farming starts and we're home more, our schedule will be more...scheduled.

eats | sawyer is still exclusively on breast milk. she takes a bottle like a champ, which is different from her sister...who refused a bottle from three months on, so hopefully that won't change.

at four months we started feeding kaye pureed veggies and skipped right over the oatmeal. i'm not sure if we'll take the same route with sawyer since she's such an easy eater. we'll chat with our pediatrician next month.

loves | well...it's hard to say what a three month old really loves. but i like to think she really loves me, a lot. it also seems as though she enjoys riding in the ergo with her farmer. she cuddles right into his chest and it's lights out. more love? i'm nearly positive sawyer loves kaye and thinks she's funny. i wasn't sure when their relationship would bloom, but farmer and i can see it happening daily.

dislikes | it's confirmed...our sawyer-muffin dislikes water. simple as that. poor gal. i know she'll warm up to it, but i hate that it makes her a sad-bear. we'll keep working on it.

what it comes down to is we basically won the baby lottery. if farmer and i were guaranteed more sawyer-babies i'd have three more tomorrow. but for now, we have one turtle and one sawyer...it's a pretty great combination of sweet and spice.


  1. Aww, cute cute! Sawyer reminds me so much of my Hallie!

  2. Awwwww! I know what you mean. I actually do nibble on Henry's massive cheeks sometimes, because they're just so stinkin' cute! He's a pretty easy baby too, although certainly didn't sleep like that at 3 months. I'm a bit jelly.

  3. what a sweetie girl! you really did hit the baby lottery :) such a doll!

  4. She is the sweetest muffin!!

  5. so glad that she's such a happy, go lucky baby! That was our first, then our second happened...we knew we couldn't get lucky twice :) Although now she's really a super good toddler. So we'll take that!

  6. She is stunning - I'm so glad she's taking it easy on you, mama!

  7. Sawyer is adorable! I can see why she won you over so easily!

  8. Oh my goodness, the cutest baby ever!

  9. She is so perfect my friend - and so easy too! Yay - a gift for all your hard work and patience in the first round :)

  10. I'm telling you! Second baby syndrome is real! Skylor is THE easiest baby/well toddler now. Tracen at 4 years old has been a ball full of energy and NEVER sleeping (kinda like me I guess). I keep telling Jer I want 4 more if they are like Sky, from his birth to the daily stuff he's easy breezy!

  11. What a lil sweetie pie. :)

  12. Those feet! Oh I feel you on the nibbles, I could just nibble my babe all day. But he won't let me anymore, too fast, so you go enjoy that before she's on the move!

  13. you're right, my jealous pants are on. she is absolutely beautiful!

  14. I love her! I want to come to your farm and nibble on her, too :)

  15. Confession...I want to nibble too! Sounds like we're not the only ones who want to nibble our newborn babes!
