3 months and growing fast
You are three months old today and I can't believe it! You are really growing and changing fast. This month your smiles have really started to shine and I love every second of it. Your smiles are priceless and make my heart melt. You like to spend a little bit of time in your bumbo seat, swing and most recently your "johnny jump up" seat that hangs from a door. You are still a bit wobbly so you don't sit up for a long time by your self yet.
You really don't like to lay down and would much rather sit up in our laps or stand up with our help. You just can't stay a baby, can you?
Lately I've found you in your crib after a nap and you are just starting to push up on your arms and lifting your head way up in the air. Just last night, your dad said he found you rolled onto your side from your tummy in the middle of the night. I think that is mostly because you were up against the side of the crib. You really don't like when you scoot to the edge. In fact, that is pretty much the only time you wake up at night. (Thanks, Egan... we love you for that. The sleep is awesome!)
You are also learning more about your hands and feet. You like to grab our shirt and hold onto it, but you haven't started holding toys yet. You have really started to like splashing in your bath. Usually by the end, I'm totally soaked as is the counter top were the tub sits. It's fun!
We are enjoying your little personality come more as each day passes and love to watch you study new surroundings and people, and boy do you really study them. I love it! You have such serious and expressive eyes. You have also started what we call the "fake cry". It is like you aren't upset enough to really cry, but you want us to know you aren't happy either and it sounds like an adult making a cry sound. Sometimes I even think you cry a bit and then stop to see if I'm going to do anything about it, but I could be dreaming that one. I'm pretty sure you have everyone wrapped around your finger though. You still have your "cry time" most nights and that isn't fun, but it is becoming less and less which is nice.
This next month is going to be a big one. We are buying a house and one month from today is your dad and my 5th wedding anniversary, so we will be sharing that day with your 4 month birthday. It'll be a fun day!
Egan, you have changed our life in so many ways, but it is so great and I enjoy each day I get to spend with you. I think you are starting to wake up now, so I better get busy with some stuff.
Check out this cute kid in his bouncy seat. He loves it and I'm sure he will love it more as he gets bigger and can really bounce in it.
