Dear Baby J –
Now that things are a little easier, I will be writing you letters each month (yes, much like Dooce).
On Friday you turned 3 months old! I can’t believe it. Sometimes the days go by slowly, but then a whole month has passed. So crazy.
You had been “sleeping through the night” – from around 11:30pm to 5am, but in the past day or so you seem to be experiencing a growth spurt – so you are waking up more often with a man sized hunger. Yesterday was the first time in your life that you have had over 30 ounces in a 24-hour period. I am hoping once the growth spurt is over, that all this food will really help you sleep through the night – like from 10pm – 5am. That would totally rock.
You are much less stingy with your smiles – now you love to give them out pretty freely! Esp. when you are fussing in your crib and I go to sooth you, you smile and are all “Oh, mummy, you know you want to pick me up! C’mon, mummy, just pick me up…” I try not to fall for it, but sometimes I just can’t help it! You are quite the persuasive little dude.
You really are a super baby. Last night I literally couldn’t stop kissing your cheek – you didn’t seem to mind too much. I guess I have to get all those kisses in, as one day you’ll ask that I don’t kiss you and embarass you in front of your friends. I’ll be quite sad that day. But until then, those cheeks are mine!
