Margaret Jade (Maggie) was born on December 17th, 2012. She was 5lbs 140z and 18" long. She has strawberry-blonde hair, which is a genuine surprise since both DH and I have brown hair. She has DH's blue eyes, most people say my facial features. She's a generally happy baby, usually smiling and cooing, talking. Though there are some days (like today) when it's all spit-up and fussiness.
When she was born, she had a deep red mark under her nose, but it has since faded greatly. She has a couple of red marks on the back of her head, but if her hair ever grows in, they'll be hidden.

What’s the most surprising thing to you about being a mom?

How did you and DH come up with the name, Margaret aka Maggie? (Which again, I love.)

Now that she’s almost 4 months old – do you think she’s developing more of a personality?

What is Maggie's favorite time of the day?

Does Maggie prefer belly or back?

What size clothes is she wearing now? Diapers?

Have you tried solid food yet? What do you plan on her having first?

Sorry this is so late, we spent most of today out and about.

1. Margaret is named after DH's grandmother, who passed away last year, about a month before I got pregnant.
2. Her favorite song (so far) is the Itsy Bitsy Spider. She gets the biggest smile every time I sing it.
3. She's such a people baby, she loves to be talked to and cries if you stop.
4. She's a daddy's girl. He's the only one who can calm her down most days.
5. She loves playing in water, and screams when her bath is over. (We're going to take swim lessons this summer)
6. If you turn on her mobile, she'll lay there and just stare at it for 2-3 minutes before falling asleep.
7. She has strawberry-blonde hair, which is odd because DH and I both have brown hair.
8. She likes to watch Diesel (our dog) when he moves around
9. She has mastered side rolling, so if the tv is on, she will roll on her side to watch it.
10. If she's tired and wants to go to sleep, she'll suck her thumb and use her other hand to cover her eyes as a way of letting me know.
11. Before she was born, DH used to shake my stomach and say "Earthquake!" and now there are times when laying her down and shaking her gently while saying "Earthquake" is the only thing that calms her down.
12. Most of the time she is very happy
13. She has mastered the art of crying while smiling, especially when she wants something.
14. She is formula fed, due to supply issues.
15. She has not found her feet, for all she knows, she's got stubs....
16. She loves to suck on her two middle fingers, so she looks like Spider-man
17. She snores sometimes
18. When she is sucking on her fingers, she is LOUD.
19. Her middle name is Jade
20. She has blue eyes

I just love the name Maggie. It's even better b/c it's something so special to your family.

Will you have anymore kiddos?
Where does Maggie sleep at night?
Has she made any *big* trips (like, out of town/state)? How did she do?
Does she have and sensitivities? (certain formula, clothing, detergent, etc.)

Pics, ANY! I love seeing pics of the babies. LOL If you can, post a baby pic of you side by side with one of Maggie. I'd love to see if you two look a like.

What’s the most surprising thing to you about being a mom?- How hard it is! Like, when you're just an aunt and you only have kids for a little bit at a time, it's like, "This is no problem." And then when you have your own kid, it's like, "I don't know if I'm doing this right!" And everyone asks why she's crying and I'm like, "I have no idea."

How did you and DH come up with the name, Margaret aka Maggie? (Which again, I love.)- She's named after DH's grandmother who passed away last year.

Now that she’s almost 4 months old – do you think she’s developing more of a personality?- Yes! She's such a people person. She just cries and cries if no one talks to her. Our dog is a people person to, so we always have at least one whiney baby... LOL

What is Maggie's favorite time of the day?- Anytime that DH and I are both home and talking to her. She smiles so big.

Does Maggie prefer belly or back?- She likes both equally I think. She's finally realized that she can sleep on her belly and just does that when it's tummy time, lol

What size clothes is she wearing now? Diapers?- 3-6 month in clothes, and she's on the second largest setting on her diapers (we use cloth)

Have you tried solid food yet? What do you plan on her having first?- We haven't yet, but she'll start with Avocado I think.

Will you have anymore kiddos?- We plan to, eventually. I'd like at least 3 more

Where does Maggie sleep at night?- She's been doing really well sleeping in her crib lately

Has she made any *big* trips (like, out of town/state)? How did she do?- We went to Colorado two months ago and she did great. She loved it up there

Does she have and sensitivities? (certain formula, clothing, detergent, etc.)- Not so far

Can you share a picture of you in labor with Maggie? And one of her fresh out of the oven? (preferably with the cheese still on her.) 3 more children?! Yowza! Good luck with that, girl!

cutie patootie!

Does Maggie look more like you as a baby or like DH as a baby? Or neither?

What are your favorite colors to dress her in?

Favorite baby item you have?

Was she planned or a happy accident?

If you had to guess, do you think she'll be talking or walking first?

What's her favorite toy?

Who is her favorite person besides you and DH?

What are your favorite colors to dress her in?- All of them!

Favorite baby item you have?- Her mobile, I think. She'll lay there and watch it for quite a while

Was she planned or a happy accident? - Happy accident

If you had to guess, do you think she'll be talking or walking first?- Talking, for sure

What's her favorite toy?- Her playmat. She loves to look up at the animals

Who is her favorite person besides you and DH?- I'm not sure. She really likes everyone

What a cutie!

Sorry I'm late on this, but:
Does she have a favorite toy yet?
Is she a mama's girl or is she still ok with everyone?
What is her biggest comfort?

Pics:
I'd love to see a comparison from first born to now!
