Magnolia Kate is FOUR months old!

You are a third of a year old and I’m in total disbelief! I’ve never had time go as fast as it has these last 4 months! I swear, I blink and you’re doing something new or learning something new!

This is a crazy long post since I’m WAY behind but I’ll be making sure to do these monthly again! So I can look back and remember always πŸ™‚

{Two Months}

We cuddled a lot this month as you were navigating into being a big two month old!


We had our first big roadtrip as Mama and Magnolia πŸ™‚ We headed to Eau Claire for a night with Grandma and Great Grandma!


You didn’t love the car ride and decided to scream the last 45 minutes to Eau Claire but were such a gem while at Grandma’s overnight!


You became more content this month and decided you kinda liked your bouncer and looking at the hanging toys!


You continued to LOVE tummy time and can hold your head up SO well!


You still REALLY enjoy your time on the ball!


We went on our first Costco trip as a family – you didn’t love it though and ended up throwing up on yourself 😦


We celebrated Valentine’s Day and you might have gotten a Valentine or two πŸ™‚


You went to your first big Golf show that Daddy loves so much! I think he’ll be getting you some clubs there next year already!


And you had Auntie Dee and Marcus visit you because they missed you oh so much!


We also did your first trip to Bingo and you were Auntie Dee’s good luck charm!


You also found your voice this month and learned that you LOVE to hear yourself talk! We love it too!

We had our first Mexican lunch date with Jess and you made us work for it! Jess did lunges for you most of lunch just to make you happy!


You had your first big day with Daddy while Mama went to a baby shower – and you did so good!


We also went on our first Target run which was the first time Mama took you somewhere by herself so we had to document that with a photo πŸ™‚


{Three Months!}

This was a big month for you! You started pulling toys down and trying to hold onto things!


Grandpa and Janean visited you for the first time and you LOVED it! No tears for you πŸ™‚


Even Grandpa enjoyed holding you!

We had our first appetizers and brunch with the girls – and let’s just say… you were a peach for a little bit but then you got HANGRY and refused to eat – oh yeah you started your weird not eating thing this month too! 😦


You found your hands and you can’t keep them out of your mouth! Which makes for some gross smelling formula hands if we don’t clean them ASAP!

You went on a REALLY long car ride to visit your Daddy’s family and Mama’s side too!




The car ride wasn’t fun but once we were there, you were so good!


You got your first cold this month too – right before our trip to Wisconsin and you were SO congested! Poor thing!


We started to get your smiles on camera this month too! You have the BEST smile!


We visited Mama’s work this month and you were able to meet Mama’s coworkers. You did pretty good for a while but then got pretty upset but I’m sure it was because you realized Mama was going back to work and you’d be headed for daycare soon enough!


Mama and Daddy had our first date night to a hockey game while you hung out with Auntie Gayle. You didn’t love it but we made sure to rush home for bath time and bedtime! I also vowed that we don’t need any date nights again any time soon πŸ™‚


We also made our first trip to the Doctor (sans a baby well check up) because your left eye was full of goop! The doctor’s were concerned but after seeing you, they figured it was just a blocked tear duct. Thankfully, it went away after a few days!


We visited daycare this month and you met your teachers. Mama cried quite a bit (and we weren’t even dropping you off yet!) when you gave your pouty lip.


We celebrated St. Patrick’s Day and you looked so cute in your pretty outfit and bow!


You still really LOVE to kick and do so anytime you can!

Our yoga ball broke this month but you showed us that you didn’t really need it anymore! Rocking in your nursery helped us BIG time!


You rolled over from tummy to back for the first time (March 22) and showed us that you are beyond determined for the next thing!

Your Uncle Alex, Auntie Anne and Cousin Nora came to visit you for our first NICE day outside! We played and played and finished the day with a walk πŸ™‚


We matched for the first time this month in Lilly Pulitzer – and your obsession with their clothes begins!


You grew SO much this month and we’re beyond blessed to be your parents!

{Going into Four Months}

You started giggling more this month and it’s the CUTEST thing we’ve ever heard! You think Daddy’s really funny!

You still love to tell us stories and all about your day!

We had our first Mommy and Me Event and we made the sweetest Easter plate with your little toes! I can’t wait for more of these!


Your Papa Jay, Shari and Auntie Cam visited this month for a few days and you loved showing them how you can roll over like a big girl!


You went in your jumper table for the first time this month and somehow grew overnight to touch your feet to the ground!

You started daycare this month and after a few rough days, you’re a rockstar with your teachers and the other kids! We enjoy all the pictures we see of you learning so much! πŸ™‚


You even sent Mama flowers your first day at daycare because it was a rough rough few days for Mama!


You still LOVE music and love to hear us sing to you! Your current favorite is “Happy and you know it!” and it just makes you smile smile smile!


We finally finished your nursery this month to add the girly Magnolia Kate touches it needed and we love it!


We celebrated your transfer day and couldn’t believe it had been a year since you were put inside me!

You rolled from back to tummy this month and are obsessed with doing it anytime you are laying down! Once you get onto your tummy, you swim swim swim and want to move already! Constantly grabbing at things to try to pull yourself further!

You are sitting up so good this month unassisted! Not 100% but I think by month 5, you’ll be sitting up all by yourself! You don’t like to sit back or lay back anymore – you’re constantly trying to sit up!


We had our first snow day with daycare this year (we didn’t know that could happen!) and we enjoyed a day of playing and snuggling instead!

We went to LaCrosse to visit your friends Sully and Preston and while it wasn’t your best day ever, we were so happy they could all meet you!


We had your first urgent care visit this month and found out you had a double ear infection, sweet girl!


We went to see the Easter Bunny this month and you did SO good! No tears at all and we even got a little smile out of you πŸ™‚ We can’t wait to have you visit Santa!

We went to Chetek for Easter this month and you met all of your cousins/great aunts/uncles on Mama’s side.


It was our first FULL day outside and you did amazing! No tears or meltdowns at all!


You got FOUR Easter Baskets this month – so many!


And you found your Easter basket from Great Grandma Marilyn!


Grandma had a little shower to welcome you, Baby Girl with our family and you got the cutest gifts! I can’t wait until the weather stays nice for you to wear them all!


We celebrated Easter Sunday at home with Mama and Daddy and you matched with Mama πŸ™‚



You are loved baby girl, more than you will ever know! We can’t wait to see what’s in store for us with you – you are just incredible!
