3 Months

Dearest Ryan,

Today you turned 3 months old. You have grown so much and you can do so many more things since I last sat down to write one of these letters.

You smile more and more every day. Your coos and giggles are more varied in their sound. You still try to mimic sounds and facial movements. You try so hard to do this, but you're not quite there. You do consistently stick your tongue out though if someone sticks it out at you :) You can pick up toys that are lying in your lap and you bring them to your mouth. You drool CONSTANTLY! You can now roll from your belly to your back AND from your back to your belly. It’s always funny when you end up on your belly, because you don't like that and then you start to fuss until you roll back the other way.

You love to be held up so you can "walk." You're getting better and better at this and it is so cute to watch. Your legs are so strong that you can even play in your excersaucer (with close supervision, of course!) which makes you laugh and coo a LOT. Your favorite toy is the spinning rattle with the fish in it. The first time you made it turn it scared you. But now you're used to it and you get so excited when you hear the rattle, rattle, rattle, as it spins.

You're still not the greatest sleeper, but you are improving. You now consistently give us two 4 hour stretches, and occasionally a 5 or 6 hour stretch. Daddy and I would love it if you would keep those 6 hour stretches coming! When you do wake up, you're almost never up for more than 15 minutes, and Mommy is very grateful for this! You wake up in the morning at around 7:00. You usually play in your crib a bit, talking and cooing to yourself, until you finally start yelling for me to come in and get you. Whenever I walk in you always have the BIGGEST smile on your face. It's as if you're saying, "You're finally here! I missed you!" It’s one of my favorite parts of the day!

Mommy is going to have to go back to work in less than a month now. But we're not going to talk about that right now, because it brings tears to Mommy's eyes just typing the words. Mommy loves her job, but she loves being home with you and can't imagine leaving you. But I know that you'll be in wonderful hands with Nana!

Well, Sweet Boy, it’s hard to believe you've already been here for three months. My, how life has been changed and enriched! I can't to wait to watch you grow and develop even more. I love you sooooooooooo much!
