Ashtyn can only sleep well if she is swaddled, and lately she has to be double swaddled! I think I sleep better knowing she is double swaddled because there does not seem to be any possible way that she could roll around and move while in this semi-petrified state. I was COMPLETELY wrong. I woke up about 6 AM, yesterday morning, to find that my baby had gone from laying normal in her crib to shimmying 90 degrees, but still in her back! My child is a magician! I moved her back to her original position, stuck her paci back in her mouth and we both went back to sleep. This was only the first surprise for me on her 3 month birthday. Come 7AM, I wake up and start getting ready for work. Usually arond 7:30 I feed her and put her back to bed til about 8AM. From 8 til 8:30 it's Mommy and Baby time. I was busy lotioning her up under her neck when she started to smile. I started to tickle her more and she LAUGHED! More like cackled, but it was amazing. I was so sad to have to get her ready for daycare because I could have played with her all day long. I live to hear my baby laugh and see her smile. I love being a mom.

Today was the first day that it was nice enough to take Ashtyn outside. We took her to the park for her first outing. Matt thought she would hate it, but she loved it! We put her in the baby swing and she just let us push her back and forth. The wind in her face, as well as a lick or two from Poke (Matt's dog), and it was the best day of her life, so far! As we were leaving, Matt decided she might like going down the slide. I think that it was more fun for Matt than it was for Ashtyn. Hopefully we will be able to do more similar family outings later this summer!
We have discovered the Bumbo..... I always thought that chair looked stupid and uncomfortable, but I was wrong! Ashtyn loves her Bumbo. When she is propped up in it, she can talk for an hour straight. But when she is propped up in it in front of American Idol, that is when her eyes really light up. Who knew my baby girl would be a fan at such a young age. I'm so proud!
Ashtyn and I are all moved into our new house! We are so excited. After a week of trying to move in, it FINALLY happened. Her first night was kinda rough. She woke up about 3 times. But our second night was awesome! She fell asleep around 10 and slept straight through til 7. I'm blessed with an AMAZING sleeper. She definately takes after her father!
