3 months!

I can't believe he's been gracing our lives for 3 months already. Time has flown so fast and he's getting so big so quickly. We are so incredibly lucky to have him, and we hope that as he grows up he feels the same way about us.

He's reaching developmental milestones left and right. One week ago he started sleeping through the night. Yesterday he realized he had hands and could clasp them together on purpose, as well as reach out for objects and grab them. He's not always successful, sometimes smacking himself in the forehead rather than reaching his mouth.... but he's working on it. His crooked smile has moved on to become a heart warming giggle. And oh, how those giggles slay me.

He is a generally happy baby particularly so in the morning. He makes it impossible to be grumpy because he is all smiles and giggles. Sometimes when I look at him I get a little misty eyed. But happiness does that to me these days.

His 3 month checkup is on Friday. I'll post his most current height and weight measurements after that visit. Right now all I know is he's a tank and he's growing like a weed.

I just wanted to say hello.

More meaty posts forthcoming.
