Well I'm finally 100% recovered! That being said, moving on.  Our daughter is almost 3 months old, and I can't believe just how fast time goes by.  She smiles all the time, has almost started laughing, and is discovering her voice and the use of her hands more and more each day.

Being a stay-at-home mom has been wonderfully exhausting and rewarding.  Trying to squeeze cleaning, cooking, laundry, and baby duties all into one day can be quite challenging.  I'm learning patience in a whole new way.  Life is finding routine again though.  At 7 weeks, Emilee slept through the night for the first time.  Now at 12 weeks, she sleeps every night from 8pm to 7am (hopefully this won't change once she starts teething).  Biggest challenge I have with her now is solidifying her nap schedule - she's a very light napper.

Despite her short naps, I'm loving her new baby stages more and more - each month is my favorite month, and she keeps getting better and easier.  Even with a rough labor, long recovery and those seemingly endless sleepless nights... I'm addicted!  It's no secret to my family and friends that I want more.

I have always wanted 2 kids, but for the first time in my life, I'm considering 3.  Even my husband who has always just wanted 2 is open to 3.  The thought of a house full of kids laughing and playing puts a smile on my face, and I'm so excited for those days to come.
