 {3 months}

So, I am a few days late on this one little man - but that's because this milestone kinda snuck up on me... You are three months old. Three months ago I brought home this skinny lil' baby - and here you are now - no neck, three chins, and all chub. Boy do I love it! A couple of days ago you started to giggle. I couldn't stop laughing because your giggle is hilarious! It's like you are still trying to figure out the whole laughing thing and you need a little practice. And then yesterday daddy woke you up from one of your naps and you were all out of sorts. You couldn't decide how you felt. You were sobbing when I went to pick you up, but then you saw me and did your giggle. Then you started doing both - at the same time. Hours of entertainment baby - that is what you are! This month you are being so much more interactive. It makes those first few weeks of living in an exhausted fog all worth it. In the early days you slept 95% of the time. Your eyes were hardly ever open and you were so needy. Now you are SO alert, SO awake, and becoming very social. This is, indeed, a very fun stage. Daddy and I are so thankful that your reflux has diminished to just little spit ups here and there. Really, really glad to be over the worst of that! This past week you slept 8 hours straight for two nights. Oh my - I can't even find words for the goodness of that. I woke up feeling amazing! Better than I had felt in a very long time. I don't expect 8 hours to be a consistent trend here, but even the 5 that you do regularly is much improved from last month. Sleep is a good thing. A very, very good thing! I actually think I love it more than I should... but that's another story. You'll find out all of mommy's faults soon enough. Some day you won't look at me like I am the queen of everything good and well.... milky. {I think to you "milky" would be like the ultimate word} You are 13 lbs 6 oz and 24 inches long. That is a 6 pound gain and a 5 inch gain in length since birth!! I am really enjoying you. I am enjoying you more than ever before. I love that! ~Mommy
