My baby girl turned three months old today! A quarter of a year...how exciting! :) I can't believe it's been three months already - and so much has changed! She is really blossoming into such a sweetie pie. Jonathan and I almost feel like we cheated in a way...only because she is such an easy-going, laid back baby! She is hardly ever fussy or difficult, she rarely cries unless she's hungry/needs a nappy change. She seems so content and smiles/laughs SO much...she is very independent in the sense that she will put herself to sleep without needing to be rocked or fed, she will also entertain herself for long periods of time either on her play mat, crib or swing. Maybe our next baby will be a little devil just to punish us for having it so easy this time - ha ha ha!
Today she wore a little cream velour sweatsuit from H&M...I think this is getting a bit small :( It's a size 2-4 months and they tend to fit a bit snugger than her 3-6 clothes. (FYI she has been fitting into 3-6 since a few weeks ago!) The headband is from Next and her pink long-sleeve vest which you can't really see is one of the loveliest presents we got from a viewer of ours! She designed a picture on the front of Emilia with the four puppies and there's even a cupcake on the bum...ha ha ha!
Breakfast time! My breakfast looked very festive this morning so I thought I'd snap a picture. This kind of thing makes me happy...I don't know why! It's not like anybody joins me for breakfast, I bring Jonathan's into his study for him and Emilia's not technically "eating" yet, ha ha ha! But I always light a candle & set the table for myself anyway...just a funny little tradition :) The table-runner was a gift from my mom and I think she bought it in Germany while visiting my sister. The place-mat is also from Germany, we got a set of two as a wedding present from a friend.
I spent the whole morning wrapping presents...yay! My mom always gave me this job whenever I was a bit older and stopped believing in Santa as she hates wrapping but I love it! I don't think I'm very good at it either...I just like the feeling I get from seeing all of the pretty presents wrapped up! It's like instant gratification, ha ha! I bought this Hello Kitty paper and the coloured bows from none other than good old Tesco :)
For lunch today we went to my mom's as I had gotten her a little gingerbread man candle-holder (you can kind of see it in this picture) to match my one and I wanted to give it to her! She's actually sick so technically I should be the one making her soup, not the other way around!! But she was already making minestrone so she invited us over. It was SO delicious! I had to eat it very slowly while feeding Emilia in the other arm but I enjoyed every bite!
I hope you guys are having a good December so far! We did a little more present shopping for Saturday in TK Maxx...their home section is amazing! I also picked up some new cushions for our bed which I'll show you in a picture tomorrow. I just can't believe how little time I have nowadays...it's like the days just fly by and I never manage to get everything done! :( I remember a time before Emilia where I actually would experience boredom - ha ha ha! Now that is a thing of the past, there's no time to be bored! I am not complaining though and I wouldn't change it for the world, it just takes a bit of getting used to!
