Baby Milestones: Three Months Old

Marley was very uninterested in taking her 3 month picture on the surfboard. In order to take these pictures, Marley has to lay down… and laying down is not cool in her book. No one around her lays down all of the time, therefore she is not interested in it either.

Marley's favorites:

  • Does not like to lay down unless she is thoroughly entertained whilst laying
  • Loves anything crunchy
  • Has a newly acquired interest in toys
  • First laugh!!!!!! She loves laughing at the dog and people getting hit in the head with her toys
  • Rolling over! And over! And over!
  • Stares at mama all day

Parenting: When it Comes to Religion, Politics and Forming Opinions

blogpiktoOk, can we be serious for just a second?

Coming from a parental perspective, of course we WANT our children to believe what we believe. We are fond of our own opinions and want others to agree with us, especially our own children.

Or would you want your parents to work towards training you to weigh all options and then decide for yourself? Continue reading
