Only 5 days late 🙂
It’s hard to believe that you are already 3 months old. I remember cradling you while you were still in my belly … dreaming of holding you on Christmas Eve. It seems like just yesterday it was all hope.
And yet, it is real … we have the pictures to prove it. And what a wonderful Christmas it was. Holding you in our arms was a wonderful thing for your Daddy and I, the culmination of several incredibly painful Christmases we spent waiting for you.
Looking back on this last month, it is remarkable how much you have changed. You have gone from a mostly unresponsive newborn into a highly responsive and social baby. We have loved watching the changes in you.
You favorite activity this month has been talking to people. You could spend hours working to imitate the sounds we make. Having family around at Christmas was a real treat for you … even having cousins there for bath time.
A close second is snuggling – and we don’t mind one bit. I love sitting in the chair holding you close. I treasure the moments we have, knowing that one day you will be an active little boy who doesn’t sit still for long. Somehow I think you will always be dragging blanket behind you though – as you already have shown a great love for any blanket that is soft!
You discovered your hands this month, and are delighted with both of them. Soon after you started grabbing at toys … although you have yet to master the coordination needed to get them.
It has been 3 months Schnuks – and I have been loving every one of them.
