3 Months

Today Rylie is 3 months old! Here are some highlights from her third month: Becoming quite the wiggle worm. Sleeping through the night, from about 8:30-9 p.m. until 6 a.m. Started giggling, especially when Baxter chases his tail. Started to drool and put hands in mouth. Can sit up unassisted in a chair or Bumbo… Continue reading »
