3 Months + a Happy List

Gwen turned three months old this Monday. We are completely smitten with her.

Here are some things that have made me happy recently:
- My older sister is coming to town for a couple of days this weekend! It'll be her first time meeting Gwen and she'll be taking our first family photos.
- Gwen has been making real cute "ooh" and "hoo" noises and the other day she tilted her head back and let out a little "hooo!" She looked like a wolf and I couldn't remember the word "howling" so I asked her if she was wolfing. Now we call her little wolfer.
- The other nicknames Ryan gives Gwen. There are too many to remember but my favorite right now is Little Willie, after Willie Nelson.
- I went to a mini blogger meet-up last night and met a couple of new blogging friends. Holla!
- Biscotti and fancy hazelnut hot chocolate.
- When Gwen lifts one eyebrow, which is a lot.
- When Gwen and I smile at each other when we first wake up in the morning. I heart co-sleeping.

Regarding that last point- If you're kidless and are too afraid of possibly co-sleeping with your future babies, think again! It's one of my favorite things about having a baby. I think there are a lot of benefits to sleeping with your baby, the biggest one- more sleep for you and baby if you're breastfeeding (in my case, anyway). I urge y'all to read this article about co-sleeping. I understand that not everyone may like this idea or that it may not work for every family, and that this article's title is a little harsh, but if you're on the fence then this article is for you.


  1. Goodness gracious she is such a cutie! :) I must admit I am SO excited to co-sleep with our little one :)

  2. i've heard some studies about differences in co-sleeping vs not co-sleeping and it's really interesting! also gwen is the cutest also. i can't believe you guys call her little wolfer cause that it LITERALLY SO CUTE. omg her eyebrows. i can picture that happening and it's adorable. please do this happy list and pictures of gwen thing forever.

  3. Oooo who did you meet in the blogging world? How fun!

    Also, Gwen is such an angel. I love these photos of her x
