Three Months

Dear Joshua,

It seems you have grown up so much in the last three months.  You barely resemble your newborn pictures.  You still have blue eyes and light brown hair, but your baby hair has begun to fall out and is being replaced by little boy hair.  Instead of the froggy posture you enjoyed as a newborn, you now stretch out and stand tall.

You’re a happy baby, and your smiles are contagious.  We love it when you smile with your whole body: a big open smile, happy eyes, and wiggley arms and legs.  You also like to talk now, cooing and gurgling in response to us.  Sometimes you babble on and on with big smiles, and sometimes you talk so loudly that you scare yourself! You like to stand up with help, and will push with your feet.  You also like to grab things- hair, jewelry, clothing.

We love to read books together, especially Moo, Baa, La La La, Guess How Much I Love You, Big Red Barn, and any book with animal sounds.  Your favorite song is “Old MacDonald Had a Farm.”  You like to spend a little bit of time under your play gym, looking in the mirror and at the brightly colored toys, and you’re just starting to enjoy playing with rattles and teething toys.  You’ve also discovered your hands, and like to stuff them both in your mouth to chew on your fingers.

In the past month, you’ve visited with your grandparents and great-grandparents, gone to your first tractor pull, dipped your feet in the pool (but it was cold!), and gotten better about riding in your car seat.  You still would prefer to sleep in someone’s arms rather than alone, and we can’t really blame you for that.  You wake up a few times throughout the night to eat and get changed, but we’re all sleeping a little better around here now.

You’ve spent time alone with boths sets of grandparents, and while you prefer to nurse, you’ll drink from a bottle if you have to.    You’re outgrowing your 6-month sized clothes because you’re just too long, but on really hot days you’re happy in just a gDiaper.  You definitely don’t like to be sweaty, and so we keep the house cool for you when the temperature rises outside.

We look forward to spending this summer with you!
