3 Months

Dear Darling Boy,

It's crazy that you are three months old all ready!  The time is just flying by.  This last month has been a big one for you.  Daddy and I both noticed that you seem to have hit some magic point where you are much more alert and interactive.  You are super-fun right now!

You are really starting to show your personality.  You are sweet, silly, and usually chilled out.  You make the sweetest faces and your little noises are just adorable.  You haven't really started chatting yet, but it's not far away.  You are staying awake a lot more now.  Being in your carseat, stroller, or sling doesn't guarantee instant sleep any more.

I asked Daddy to put your jeans on you and this is what happened.
I think I know where you get your silliness from...

We've gotten into a good weekly schedule.  We go to Rhythm Time (a mommy & me music group) on Tuesdays, a play group with your friends Gram, Eric and Bea on Wednesdays, and Baby Yoga on Fridays. It is nice to have set activities.  You don't always participate.  It's hard to time it so that you're in your sweet spot and not hungry or tired.

Everyone comments on how sweet you are and how much you are growing.  You started to wear some of your 3-6 month onesies.  I'd guess you are about 11 pounds now.  You were weighed last week and were 10 pounds 6 ounces.  The other big development is in your night sleep.  You've slept through a couple of times now and I'm crossing my fingers that this trend continues.  

You met my friend Micah this month.  She came to visit you from Africa and brought you lots of fun presents.  She doesn't usually like babies much, but determined that you are pretty great.  You didn't seem to have a strong opinion one way or the other on her, but you never got any bodily fluids on her and for that she thanks you.

You've gotten a few nicknames now.  We call you an assortment of silly names that rotate constantly, but "Line" and "Liney" seem to be sticking.  Daddy and I are having so much fun watching you grow and learn and we just think you are the greatest.  Lately your Daddy has been picking his socks to coordinate with yours.  He accomplished the exciting feat of finding father/son matching socks and there are plans to wear them for the Jubilee this Sunday.  You really light up when Daddy makes silly faces at you and you seem fascinated with him.

I love you so much, sweet boy!
