Sweet Siri Monster

James likes to call her the Siri Monster. Nice term of endearment, no?
 Well, everybody says how hard three kids is.  I haven't really thought so, but my blog is showing signs of neglect since I've had #3, which must be proof that 3 is harder than 2.  But if this cute little munchkin is what's keeping me from doing other things, that is just fine with me.
 Clearly she is the center of attention around here.
 We blessed this cute little baby on September 4th. Siri is showing off her beautiful slip that my Mom went overboard sewing and embroidering.
 This is her actual blessing dress which is a miniature version of my wedding dress. I think my mom took a little too much pleasure in cutting up such an expensive gown. It turned out so pretty that I don't regret it for a second.
 Siri hit her two month "birthday" on September 6th.  I've been willing her to stay 1 week old, but it just isn't happening. She is staying smaller longer than my other two babies though. That's a plus for me!
 Logan and Lizzy were both thumb suckers, but I attributed it to the fact that I was stingy giving them a pacifier. (I have nothing against pacifiers other than they NEVER stay in the mouth, therefore I just didn't offer them a lot.) Anyway, Logan broke his thumb sucking habit fairly easily, but Lizzy can't be stopped. I determined to make Siri a pacifier baby, offering it even when she didn't want/need it. Well, guess what happened?
 She prefers her thumb anyway. See the rejected pacifier?  Yeah, she won't suck on them anymore. Gah. Oh well.
Isn't she the cutest? We think so. Really. We can't get enough of her.

Some quick facts about our 12 week old angel.

Turns out she has a slight allergy to milk. I'm hoping this goes away before she's a year old.

She weighed in at 10 lbs 15 oz at her 2 month appointment. That puts her in the 60% for weight. She is 75% in height and her head was 95%.

Siri takes 4 naps a day, eats 6 times and sleeps from 9:45PM until 7:15ishAM. The middle of the night feedings ended completely when she was 10 weeks old. Yay!

She is a pretty happy baby, but she lets us know when it's nap time. She starts to get fussy.

She happily lies on the ground observing everything around her. Don't hold her in your arms cradle style. She doesn't like that. But she is happy to be held over your shoulder.

She tolerates me and her sibling just fine, but she has a definite favorite person in the house and that is Daddy. She LOVES her daddy, and he loves her right back. It's really very sweet. I would be jealous, but how can I be?  Their bond is just too precious.

Hopefully I find the motivation to update more. I know you've all been missing my updates. ;)

Your daughter is adorable! And I like that you used your wedding dress for a blessing dress (or at least I think that's what you did). Sounds like your family of five is doing well.
