Hats and Hands... Caroline's 3 Month Pictures

My friend Lora and I teamed up to take some 3 month shots of Caroline last week.

We had hats. Cute ones. To me, there's nothing cuter than a baby + diaper + hat. And maybe some booties. Who needs more clothes than that?

And then we had hands. In almost every shot. These days, it's impossible to keep Caroline's hands out of her mouth.


They're her new toys.

We tried for a smile. And failed. And got more hands shots.

But you know what? Right now she likes her hands. So it's appropriate that her 3 month pics are largely shots of Caroline trying to shove both fists into her mouth.

I know I'll look back on these and smile to remember this passing little quirk.

Unrelated: I'm in love with our cloth diapers. Isn't this green one adorable?

And okay, we did manage to snap a couple of non-hand pictures, too.

Are those blue eyes here to stay? Time will tell.

We drool a lot around here.

Pretty in pink.

And you know how this girl was skinny last month? Well, she's still pretty scrawny. Even more so, actually! We may have to invest in suspenders to keep her pants up one of these days...

3 Month Stats:
10lbs 11oz (10th-ish percentile)
23 1/2in (50th-ish percentile)

And for the record...
The pink hat + booties were a gift from my cousin Rebecca, and the multicolored hat was a gift from our friend Kendra. Love them both! And the diaper is a bumGenius 4.0 with snaps.

She is soooo tiny!!!!!!!! How adorable :) Love the shots. Both Micah and Rina are always in the 90th % for height and 75-90th for weight so it's nice to see a little one sometimes :)

She's precious!!! Makes me excited for my little one....but NOT YET!!!

Love the hats, diapers, and booties. Classic. You're right, I've learned that it is SO much better to capture their natural personalities (ie hands in mouth) than to try to get the perfect smiling pic. Love the one on her belly.

So precious! Great pics. My baby is almost 9mo and only weighs 14lbs. She eats like a champ and crawls everywhere burning off what she just ate. I love that she's small because it makes her seem like a little wee baby still. You seem to be enjoying being a mom :) love your blog posts.
