Three Months

Eliza, you are three months old today, Valentine's Day!  In some ways, I can't believe it's been three months already, but in others... I can't believe it's only been three months since you came into my world and changed me forever. Your presence is so strong and beautiful; you have taught me so much... how can you be so new to this earth? Perhaps your soul is much older and wiser than you let on.

What have you been up to this month?  LOTS of new things...

You have officially "found" your fist.  And it's your 2nd favorite thing to put in your mouth!  You can usually be found either trying to stuff your ENTIRE fist into your mouth, or sucking on at least two or three of your fingers.

You are now squealing and screeching in delight - you started doing this when you were about 11.5 weeks old and have been doing it every day since.  It's so sweet - you are SO amused with yourself!  It's as though you've just realized that you can control the sounds coming out of your mouth and are having great fun trying out new sounds.

You still love your play gym and your mobile.  Recently you've also starting to enjoy a neat toy we got you.  You are *just* starting to reaching out and grab, and you love practicing with this toy when we put it in front of you.  Just yesterday you put reached out for it, grabbed it and put it in your mouth.  I just know that by next month you'll be grabbing everything in sight (and putting it in your mouth, no doubt!).

You are so much more interested in what's going on around you this month.  We walk around the house and you just stare at everything, learning about your house.  It was pretty neat going to Costco yesterday, too, there was so many new things for you to look at.

Eliza, my girl, my pumpkin, my sugar bear, my little bunny, mama and daddy love you so much; you are our world and we cannot imagine life without you in it.
