Dear Katie Beth,
Three months is a big milestone, as it seems to mark the official end of newbornness (in my mind anyway). And you've come a long way in, what I've heard called the fourth trimester!
...holding your head up so big, rolling over a few more times (always in front of others...except for Daddy), and taking great daytime naps and long stretches of sleep at night.
The medicine you're taking for reflux may not have lessened the incredible amount of spit up that you produce, or bibs that you have to wear, but it certainly has seemed to help your mood! Which is the most important thing, because that means you are feeling better too. Car rides have also been much more pleasant as you've given up the fight and now finally seem to find your car seat relaxing.
Our little tree frog/spider monkey, you still love to be held. Your other favorite things right now are taking baths each night, the Baby Einstein activity mat - you light up before that plastic sun starts shining and just kick, kick away; and the light switch cord ball-thingie above your changing table has the same effect.
You also tolerate the Bumbo seat for long periods of time, but it's a risky place to perch you as it seems to aid in your digestion in a certain, explosive kind of way!
You follow my voice, and coo and give gummy grins that make me feel like a superstar when I smile at you. Thinking of you now, as you nap just a few rooms away, makes my heart swell with love and pride. Maybe I'll go get you up...or maybe I'll catch a quick shower instead!
I love you my sweet girl,
