3 Months!

I can hardly believe Raegan is 3 months old!  She is growing way too fast.  She has been a really easy baby for the most part and really happy.  We love her smiles!

I always said that life doesn't stop, just because you have a new baby, and that has been completely true so far.  Raegan has been a good sport about being taken to the gym, track meets, road trips and lots of other outings with very little fuss. Things take more planning and prep, but we've had a lot of fun.

It's been too long since I updated, so it's hard to remember what I need to post here. So in no particular order, here are some of the things we've been up to.

A family Date Night at Gino's East.  We were too hungry to wait for a deep dish (45 minutes to an hour wait), so we got a thin crust.  We'll go back again with the Donat's to try some REAL Chicago style deep dish though.  Sevrine had a blast getting to write her name on the wall.

Raegan still doesn't love tummy time, but she does like her new play mat.

Raegan had fun getting to go see Sevrine for lunch at school, and it seems that all the teachers and kiddos love to see the baby.

Over Memorial Day we got to take a little road trip.  We stayed local, but I'd been wanting to see the Dr. Pepper Museum.  It was pretty cool since it was housed in the original factory, but I wish there would have been more to see.  We also got to go the the Magnolia Market, from the show Fixer Upper, one of our favorite shows.  Was a little too crowded for us, and I'm sure the locals hate it.  Raegan did pretty well on the trip, although it did throw her off of her schedule a little.

Raegan handled the excitement of the hotel stay as well as some cousin time, really well.  Talk about a spoiled kiddo.  It's always a great weekend when we can squeeze in some cousin time.

The last few weeks of school mean lots of fun activities.  This picture was from the Sock Hop they did at school.  Each grade was taught a different dance, with the older kids dancing with a partner.  Sevrine handled having to dance with a boy pretty well. Thankfully, we don't have to have the shotgun talk yet.

Sevrine competed at a local track meet last weekend and Raegan was in heaven.  We seriously love our track/cross country family.  I'm always amazed at how well Raegan behaves and how resilient she is to all of the places we take her.  Makes our crazy schedule so much easier.

Sevrine got an award at track practice this week for running 3 events at the track meet, with PR's in 2 of 3 events and tying her PR in the 400M.  Really proud of how she handled the day.  She didn't want to run the last event of the day (1500M) because she was tired from being out in the heat, but she did and did so well.  Her toughness never ceases to amaze me.  Even when I do have to coax it out of her.

We had water fun day at School on Tuesday and Sevrine had a blast.  I got to come watch for a while and Raegan was super chill and relaxed, even in the heat.  Thankfully I have the car seat cover I made for her to keep her shaded.

Our first pool trip of the season, and Raegan's first time swimming.  She didn't like it at first, but she was hungry, so I can't get mad.  She did like it a little better after a bottle though.  Once the water warms up a little, it will be more comfortable for her, and me.

Seriously can't believe she is 3 months old!  I don't really want her to stay a baby forever, but I wish we could stay in this phase a little longer.  It is so much fun to watch her little personality really come out.  She started smiling at week 2, and it gets bigger and brighter every week.  She loves to play and giggle with us, and we just love all the fun sounds she makes. We're going to keep enjoying every step of this process.
