Happy 3 months old

Today is Whitney's 3 month old birthday, it is so hard to believe she is 3 months old, it actually feels like she has been around here for a lot longer than that.
These past few weeks have been transitional weeks, since I am back at work and Andy and Iare trying to get into a routine. Whitney has been cooperating though, sleeping through the night and being a really good baby during the day. We started sending her to the babysitter, Miss Chris, and are so thankful we found such a great, caring lady to watch Whitney. It makes it so much easier to leave your child when you know they are in great hands.
As for milestones this month...she is really getting strong and is starting to sit in her Bumbo seat and when she's on her tummy move her head from side to side with ease. She is tracking objects from farther away and responding to sound and light. She's "talking" more and smiling so easy now. She is happiest when she's on the changing table getting her diaper changed.
We are heading to Wisconsin at the beginning of next month and will be flying in her first airplane trip, we are excited and nervous. We are excited though to have her meet all her cousins and aunts and uncles who have patiently been waiting to hold her.
We have started a routine at nighttime of baths (she LOVES sitting in her bathtub), bottle, reading books, then bed. The routine must make her sleepy, since she sleeps almost 7 hours at a time, another thing we are so thankful for!

More patience

Today we were supposed to be heading back to Florence to have Whitney's MRI performed, but just realized last night that the appointment was rescheduled to next month. So, now we are waiting until October 18th to have this done. I have mixed emotions about this wait. I have another month to not think about this and just enjoy the time with her. On the other hand, it would be nice  (or not nice) to know what is going on up there.
I had a nice talk with a great friend of mine last night and she reminded me that regardless of the MRI results we have to take into consideration how Whitney is actually acting. And she is acting so GREAT. No need to see the pediatrician except every month and the physical therapist visits as you know are pushed out to 6 months. She is doing everything she is supposed to be doing, and I have to remember that. This is just such an emotional rollarcoaster!!!
So we will wait another month and so it is.
We don't really have any other news to update everyone with. Just enjoying the sweet little baby:)
