Three Months: A Letter

August 28, 2014

Dear Mollz,

I can't believe you are three months!  I can't believe it's already September and I'm just now getting around to posting this!  I can't believe how busy we've been!

You are just the sweetest little thing:)  You are very easy-going (two children that way...lucky, I know) and laid back and we are just loving life with you!

You smile so much now and we want to capture every single one of them:)  Your cheeks raise up so we can see you smiling from across the room!  You have even started to laugh just a little sort of sounds like you're sucking in air really hard!  It's the cutest.

We have been so busy with school starting up.  You and Lucas helped me so much by coming to my room every day for a few hours to get it all set up.  You just laid around on the rug and took naps and watched Lucas play.  You were wonderful:)

Daddy has been really busy with softball games too and we go to all we can.  You love all the softball girls and they all love you too.  They've all been so helpful and will hold you any chance they get:)  But we like when he's home and we soak up every minute:)

You have settled into Ms. Kelly's really well.  She loves you and Lucas being back!  You take good naps there, play on your tummy, sit in the swing and the bouncer and get lots of kisses from Lucas:)  I'm so glad you are both there and taken care of!

You are eating 5 oz, every 3-3 1/2 hours and you have moved to a Level 2 nipple which has been amazing!  You eat in 15-20 minutes now and you don't get sleepy!  Woohoo!  It's helped so much in the mornings getting ready and when we are out and about:)  You have just moved to size 2 diapers and you are still wearing 0-3 months clothes.  You go to sleep at 7:45p and we have to wake you up at 6:30a.  You are still sleeping on your belly, swaddled from the waist down.  Sometimes you do a 180 in your crib and it's so crazy!  You are about to get mobile, I'm sure.  You take about three 1-1 1/2 hour naps and a cat nap in the evening.  You still do really well in your carseat, stroller and the Baby Bjorn.

You are starting to get better at tummy time, but you still flail your arms and you don't really do a "push up".  You are learning how to keep your head up for longer periods of time, though, so I'm sure it won't be long before you figure out where your arms go.  You like your bouncer a lot more now because you are starting to kick and bat at the toys.  You still won't hold onto anything for very long.

You met some more new people this month.  You met Megan and JD because they finally got back from Spain.  You've been able to hang out with them a few times...swimming and playing games:)  You also met your Great-uncle Greg and Great-aunt Debbie, Mommy's cousin Russell and his family and Mommy's friends Erin and Brittany:)  They all loved you so much!  We also got another picture with your Great-grandpa Dennis...a 4 generation pic:)

This month, I want to remember your funny little laugh, the smile you give me when I pick you up from Ms. Kelly's, how fast you eat your bottle, the way you have started to look at books, and your fuzzy-stick-straight-up hair!

It amazes me how fast time has flown!  You have fit into our lives and our schedule like a glove and we couldn't feel more blessed:)  I don't know what we ever did before you came.  You are starting to get the sweetest little personality and I can't wait to see what all you accomplish!

We love you so much Molly Ann!

Mommy and Daddy
