Just typing out the title of this post made me tear up a little - I cannot believe you are three months already. It reminds me of my pregnancy - there were times I felt like I was pregnant forever and other times it felt like I had just found out yesterday. The same goes for you on the outside - it seems like you were just born yesterday and other times it seems strange to remember life without you in it.
Your smiles are the most rewarding thing in my life - to see your face light up when we see me and a smile take over will cause me to do anything you want. I'm in some serious trouble later in life! Truthfully, even your cries - which sometimes make me go crazy when I can't calm them - make my heart flutter. You are leaning against me and asking me to comfort you. I love knowing that sometimes all you want is mom, that mom knows, mom understands.
Your tummy time has paid off - you can lift your head up and check out your surroundings. You give a squeal of delight when you do it too - bragging that you've mastered yet another milestone. Also - the big milestone you reached this month - rolling over! That moment will forever be etched in my memory. You were on your activity mat rolling to your side, you had been able to roll from your back to your side since about one month. Last month you were able to roll from your back to your tummy but you couldn't get your arm out from under you which made you more than a little cranky. But I watched you roll from your back, to your side, to your tummy and then you moved your arm out of the way, pushed yourself up with your arms and looked around. When you saw me grinning and squealing like a darn fool you joined in on the fun - pretty proud of yourself.
I look forward to each new milestone you reach - these past three months have been full of hard work, sleepless nights and tears (by both you & me) but it's all paying off. Seeing you healthy, happy & thriving in the greatest reward.
