3 months old

I was thrilled for Little One to turn 1 month, ecstatic for him to reach 2 months, but dreading the 3 month birthday. Not that I didn't want him to turn 3 months, but because it would mean my return to work. (As you can see Nolen was less then thrilled with the news as well.) Where did my maternity leave go. When I was walking out the door that day in February, May 24th seemed like a lifetime away. But here we are, a week away. Sigh. On the bright side I get to spend time with my favorite co-teacher, and only have 3 weeks until schools out for summer! I think I can I think I can...this is truly one of the cruelest things. Leaving my little man for 8+ hours a day. (3 weeks, only 3 weeks, 3 short weeks.) This will be my little taste of what life will be like next school year, aaahhh, I can't think about it. It makes me cry and feel a little pukey inside. OK, on to happier things.

Here's what you've been up to this month...

•Our days start when Mommy opens your curtains, unswaddles you, and you give me that big smile "good morning mommy." (melts my heart!)
•Your busy talking away. You have so much to tell us and use every opportunity to talk.
•You found your hands! You love to eat them (you can fit your entire fist into your mouth!) You love it until you stick your fingers down your throat and gag, then you look at mommy like “why did you let me do that.”
•You HATE getting into your car seat. Even if we just walk near it you start to cry until we get in the car and you fall asleep.
•Your full of smiles, you smile at anything we do these days. It makes those 2am feedings totally worth getting up for! Daddy will say “Poopy Bananas” for hours just to see you smile.
•Your still eating every 2-3 hours but mommy is totally used to it by this point. I have no problem whipping out a boobie (and my hooter hider) wherever I am. If I get a dirty look they get a glimpse of my favorite finger (kidding.)
•Your diaper changes can last for hours because the changing table is where we bond. We sing and dance and laugh for hours and hours. I think you just like having your little manhood out in the open air.
•You’ve been sleeping anywhere from 3-6 hours a night. This makes Mommy feel like a new mommy in the morning!
•You HATE Jcrew. Not sure what it is, your fine in every other store, but the second we enter Jcrew… at least you’ve saved me lots of money!
•Your now 13 pounds!
•Your wearing size 0-3, 3-6, or 6 month clothing, just depends on the brand.
•You love going on walks facing outward in your BabyBorjn. Your not too fond of the Florida heat. It makes for an interesting walk.
•You went swimming for the first time, you loved it!
•You went on your first airplane ride to North Carolina. You slept the whole time and flirted with every flight attendant.
•Your favorite toy is your baby Einstein music light up toy, it brings instant smiles. Your also enjoying your JellyCat Monkey. You love to eat him.

You make Mommy & Daddy love you more everyday, more then we ever knew possible. Life with you makes perfect sense little one!
