Trixie: Three Months

I feel like I could copy and paste from the two month summary with very little changes.

One big update is that her heart is improving. The cardiologist was really impressed with how her heart is working right now, and we anticipate that it will continue to gradually improve for a while. At some point she will need more procedures (like a valve replacement), but right now that appears to be years down the road rather than months. We are incredibly grateful for that.

Trixie is still a night owl, but once she is finally down for the night, she usually sleeps for about 8 hours, give or take an hour.

This month she has started smiling more frequently, and we all enjoy that. She still loves the ceiling fan and flails with excitement when we turn it on. When it is not on it she stares at it with anticipation.

Ike is still Trixie's biggest fan. He adores her and is constantly in her face trying to amuse her or something - I'm not really sure what his deal is. Felix likes her well enough, but he has ordered me to put her in a her bed a handful of times this past month. At the same time, he is protective of her and does not like her to get shots (which we do at least once a month because she gets extra vaccinations), and he regularly tells me that our baby is the cutest or best baby in the world. (His neighbor friend across the street, Charlotte, has the second cutest baby.)

Yesterday was her blessing day, and Eric gave her a beautiful baby blessing. She wore the dress that I wore nearly 31 years ago, and which my mom made for me. My mom couldn't be there, so it was nice to have this little heirloom.

Anyone who can get my kids to cooperate for pictures deserves their weight in gold.

Oooooh, my goodness!!! Look at her little face! She is darling, I am so glad that she is constantly improving and growing.

(Also, I *just* learned that you and Janssen were college roomies! How did I not put that together before!? Who knows.)
