I am on a mission to catch up with this space and make it prettier. We kept up with a monthly picture and I even wrote a draft for most months, if not just kept notes so I wouldn't get too confused. So here it goes.

Little baby, you are three months! You are turning into be such a little goofy girl. We thought we were getting to know you last month but you seem to be getting more personality than we ever expected. You went from a little lump of sleepy sweetness to a hilarious face-making little person. Everyone loves you where ever we go because you're so expressive.
You've kept up with sleeping through most of the day and are still a bit cranky in the evenings. We think you may be teething, as you LOVE to bite, bite, bite. Thankfully you don't seem interested in biting down while nursing. Your favorite is our fingers. We even have to turn our fingers sideways because you bite so hard when you bite down on our nails it makes us yelp! You simply aren't interested in any type of teether than we've offered yet. You had a crying fit one late afternoon, before your daddy was home,  and for the first time ever I wasn't able to soothe you. I always offer a boob when you seem to get bothered and walking, rocking, or a diaper change don't help. But you cried for fifteen minutes and by the time you calmed down I was a sobbing mess and your dad had gotten home (responding to my "HELP" text) and you just suddenly stopped. Your daddy is so good at soothing you without any help (boobs), and I simply haven't needed to work out what exactly calms you down, because, well, boobs. Thank goodness that was the first and last over whelming bit we've had so far. I am so thankful you love nursing so much- it solves all your problems, and therefore mine.
You don't have much interest in toys of any kind yet, either. You check them out when we hand you one or prop it up around you, but you haven't gotten the hang of holding onto anything. You pretty much just get held or carried around most of the time. 
You LOVE when daddy wears you in the ergo. Almost every night, when you start to get cranky and I'm a bit over nursing for comfort your daddy pops you in the ergo and you promptly smile and watch a bit of tv with us and then take a nice long nap. It never fails. We usually take turns wearing you when we're out because we both love it. If I'm being totally honest, though  you do prefer daddy's ergo to mama's sling. But you enjoy it in smaller doses, through out the day while we pat around the house.
You had your first nap crib this month. But it didn't seem to be something you are too keen on so after trying a few more times we've gone back to just cuddle naps. You take one after every nurse, which is every two hours. Your naps still last anywhere between thirty minutes to two or three hours (if I don't move). You wake up right away as soon I get out of the bed.
Your big accomplishment of the month was a roll over! You had been working on it for about two weeks before you finally got all the way over. And as soon as you did I clapped and cheered for you and you had such a look of accomplishment you didn't even smile. "Oh, what this? No big deal." is what you seemed to be saying. 
You are turning into such a funny, funny, baby.
