Happy 3 Month Birthday Tatum!

That's right, today is Tatum's 3 month birthday!! I can't believe she is already 3 months old!! Antonio and I have enjoyed every minute of watching her grow and develope her own little personality! I never thought I would be one of those moms running to call my husband because Tatum smiled for the first time, or calling my mom to tell her that Tatum slept 6 whole hours during the night, or blogging because Tatum rolled over for the first time! Yet, here I am!

The first 3 months didn't go as expected. I had originally planned on breastfeeding Tatum for at least 6 months, but I had to stop because I wasn't producing enough milk to keep up. I also didn't think that Tatum would honestly be sleeping at least 10 hours at night. Probably the biggest surprise is I thought I would be so ready to go back to work after staying home for so long, yet here I am wishing I could strike it rich so I never had to go back. I just can't stand the thought of missing her taking her first steps or hearing her first giggling spell or anything else. I am comforted that she will be in loving, caring, and safe arms, but they just won't be MY arms. I know she will be okay and I just need to get over it, but I am going to enjoy these last 3 weeks of being home.

It is still so weird to look at her and know that she is MINE and ANTONIO's baby. That WE made her and she is OURS forever!! I am filled with such pride just looking at her and I pray that we never fail her as parents. Happy Birthday Baby Tatum!

Also, HAPPY BIRTHDAY BRANDY!! Brandy and I have been friends since high school and have remained friends through college. She is a great friend and has seen me thru getting married, being pregnant, and now being a mommy. I am so thankful that she lives so close too so we can hang out whenever we find time! We share a love for Britney, N'SYNC, and Justin Timberlake that no one will ever understand but us. Thanks for so many years of being a great friend and I look forward to many more! Can we say Bahama Breeze please?
