3 Months Old

Dear Autumn,

It's hard to believe that you're three months old. With your brother we studied every single next step and pushed for him to progress. With you we're just enjoying each day as it comes, and you seem to be growing so much more quickly that way. Every day you feel heavier and taller. My tiny little newborn left me while I wasn't watching. I miss her, but you are so darling that it's hard to be too sad about the changes.

You have such strong head control. You love to look around and watch everything happening around you.

You are the smiliest baby I've ever seen. The first thing you do when you wake up in the mornings is give me a huge smile. You'll smile at everyone around you and with very few exceptions, you always seem so content.

You are so curious about everything and can stare at the same thing for such long amounts of time. You especially love studying your fists and your toes. Some days I worry that you'll go cross-eyed from focusing so intently.

I've decided that just because something is cute does not mean it should have ever been made for a baby. Like this turtle-neck. You hate it and can't move your head when you wear it. Sorry I make you wear such silly things sometimes.

You love reaching for things and playing with toys. You have a very firm grasp and once you latch on to something you like, you don't let go. You are so great at entertaining yourself for fairly long stretches of time.

Autumn your sweet, good-natured personality is just what this family needed. You're even winning your big brother over with your huge smile and constant cooing and chattering. You are well-loved by everyone who meets you and we are so excited to see what the next months will bring. I could kiss your soft baby cheeks all day long.
