3 Months Old

You’re 3 months old now.

It’s funny, I can’t really imagine my life without you.

I listed all my maternity clothes on Craigslist yesterday. The time you spent in my belly seems like a blur now.

Your Daddy can hardly believe how happy you are.

You figured out something really cool several weeks ago. It’s called “bringing your hands to the midline”. That’s fancy talk for: You can put your hands to your mouth now! I’ve even seen you put *both* fists in your mouth at the same time!

It also means you can grab fistfuls of mommy’s hair, clutch brother by the collar, and pull your skirt up to your face.

You have a tickle spot on your right side, under your ear. Just like mommy! If I nuzzle you there you go into fits of giggles. Your brother has been convinced for awhile that you are ticklish under your arms, and I saw you get chillbumps the other day when he tickled you so now I believe it.

You have been laughing out loud at me for a long time. Your smile seems to take over your face. It’s as if your entire body smiles. You curl up your legs and bring your hands in front of your face. It’s the sweetest thing.

There is something you don’t like.

It scares you when Mom or Dad holds you facing out and walks down stairs. Mommy knows to face you to her chest and hold you really tight. But sometimes Daddy forgets. The other day you got so mad at him! You threw your arms out and stiffened up and screamed and your face turned all red.

Your older sibs still line up in the morning to see who can hold you first.

Who can blame them?
