three months of pure bliss

Hey, it's me, E. Since I've been talking so much lately I may as well take over this blog my mom's got going and tell you a little bit more about myself... 

I'm three months old, finally! This life earth side sure does go by slow 'specially in this tiny little body I've been squeezed into. Buuut I guess it's not so bad since I got my memory swiped and I've got to learn all the things I knew in heaven all over again, some kind of test or something, I can't remember. But hey, I'm cozy most the time and my parents give me lots of kisses, it's pretty much all my mom does all day long. I've got a pretty sweet set-up, I sleep in a cradle next to my P's and usually my mom will let me sleep with her in bed when I get hungry around 4 am. I like cuddles, it makes me feel all safe n' stuff. Well, I'm off to bed now 

Things I love//
Pretending I'm running while laying on my back 
Staring at bright lights
Bath time
Smiling really big
Eating my fists
Scratching my face accidentally 
Feeling the hair on my head with my left hand mostly
When Mommy and Daddy sings to me
Talking, goo-ing and gurgling
Playing with and munching on my bear
Standing and showing how strong I am
Morning awake time
Getting my diaper changed
Having my bum patted

Things I'm still learning//
To take longer naps during the day
To drink from my bottle

Things I've learned//
To roll from my tummy to my back
To suck on my pacifier longer
To wriggle my hands out of just about any burrito-wrap swaddle
To mimic mommy sticking her tongue out at me
To grab and pull things to my mouth or knock things with my fist using my left hand

Things that scare me//
The shopping carts at Walmart 
When someone blows their nose
Being held face-out and walking down the hallway - I'll tighten up, clinch my fists, hold my breath and then burst out crying
Loud sounds

Funny and cute things I do//
Rub my nose in mommy's chest cause my nose itches
Choke on my own spit and my eyes get all big, red and puffy instantaneously 
Smile up at mommy when I'm suppose to be sleeping, gets her every time. 
Breath in and out really quick when I get excited
My big stretches when mom unravels me after sleeping. I curl my legs in, stretch my arms straight up and arch my back. Oh it feels so good!
I like to hold onto my shirt with clenched left fist

Things mommy + daddy love about me//
My soft tummy skin
My pouty face
The "ksh" sound I make after I yawn 
When I get so excited I hit my tummy with my arms and it makes a ploop sound
My chubby frog legs
My dimples
My cold clammy feet

And basically everything else I do. These peeps are wrapped around my finger. 

My stats that my mom is guessing on//
About 15+ lbs
25 inches tall

Notes from my mushy Mom//
3 months eh, little bud? That's crazy!  Here I have a three month old baby and I don't even remember what being pregnant felt like. As every parent knows, time flies once they're out of the womb. Likely due to the fact that the days are so full of a beautiful simplicity and having a ray of sunshine in your home make the day seem to run and bedtime comes all to quickly. Once he's asleep I rush to do all the other menial tasks I put off doing while I instead played with or rather gazed at my cooing-drooling-kicking chub-of-joy during the daylight hours. The dark hours feel more like milliseconds and I find myself awake far too late once again. Once his shifting settles and all I hear is the hum of the fan and my tasks are done I sit and reflect upon our day and miss him while he sleeps. Hoping his sleep doesn't help him to grow big too fast and yet my prayers plead for his good health, strength and happiness. I love this time I have to get all-the-more giddy about being his mom, talking and laughing with Phil about all the cute things he does. We go to bed with smiles on our faces knowing we've never felt more happiness in our lives, never felt more complete. To think of all that time we would have wasted if we had waited to bring him into our family makes me all the more glad he came when he did. To think of all the "me" time or "only us" time we could or would have, it sounds so bleak and lifeless. I cherish the past for all it has taught me about love and life. What a beautiful reward for faded black memories turned grey, turned white. I am so blessed. I deeply love our little family and know there truly is joy and rejoicing in our growing posterity, and it's only just begun. 

And what you've all been waiting for...
