Dear Daddy

I've gained a whole half a pound! Plus I'm wearing my very first 6 month onesie. It's a little big, but at least my legs and feet aren't squished.

Right now I'm talking to fast for Mommy to type everything I'm saying, so I giver her a break every few minutes my stopping and eating my hands.

Now I have the hiccups. I ALWAYS seem to get the hiccups and it makes me mad.

Whenever I'm drinking my milkies and Mommy makes me stop to burp me, I squeal like a little piggy. I'm not a fan of being burped, unless I have something to watch.

Can't wait to see you soon!!!! Love you lots and lots.

Dear Daddy

Mommy and I "celebrated" my turning 3 months old today by going out and applying for my very own passport! Mommy says it was anything but a celebration for her, but I had a blast because at Mommy's 2nd attempt to submit my application, Nana came along. I got to eat milkies and then promptly filled my diaper with stinks while entertaining Mommy and Nana will my faces. Of course I got bored after that and Nana took me out to the car while Mommy finished up.

I'm not suppose to tell you, but I'm sleeping in my swing again tonight. Mommy says she'll put me jn my cosleeper tomorrow night.

So far I still weight 12 lbs, although I'm starting to grow out of the smaller 3 month clothes. It's mostly onesies with small footies. I don't like having my toes all scrunched up.

Love you Daddy. So excited to see you soon!

I wore myself out from all the excitement Thanksgiving day that I slept 7 straight hours in my swing!
After sleeping that long, Mommy was sure that I was going to be bright eyed and bushy tailed for the rest of the night/morning. But I drank half of my usual amount of milk, and fell asleep for another 3 hours.

Mommy and I joined Nana and Aunt M while they did some black Friday shopping. I promptly got tired of all the lights and noise, but feel asleep after crying for only a minute or two. Mommy was terrified that she was going to have a Thanksgiving day screaming episode on her hands once again, but I was cool as a cucumber after I had that short nap in her arms while shopping.

Following shopping, we went to visit Uncle C's family and I put on the charm.

I fell asleep when we went to Aunt M and Uncle C's house to help put up Christmas decorations. I slept in Uncle C's office the whole time Mommy, Nana and Aunt M were decorating. Mommy had a blast. She was soooo happy that I did so well while we were out. But then again, Aunt M and Nana know me and what I like.

I love you Daddy. It won't be to long before I can see you again!!! Hugs and milky kisses.

Mommy and I have been feeling a little blah. I have a yucky cold and Mommy is trying to deal with pain, vomiting, and asthma. We are quite a pitiful pair! But we also make for perfect sleeping buddies. We sleep a lot...day and night.

Despite my cold, I'm eating like a champ. Anywhere from 4-6 ounces.

Development wise, there is nothing really new that I've been doing lately besides continuing to grow big and strong!

Love you Daddy. We miss you soooooo much.

If you came to this post expecting a gushing out pour of all that I'm thankful for...you are in for a surprise!

I hate Thanksgiving and all of the stupid "Day #: I'm thankful for...." crap that everyone and their brother is doing. It's like they go through their list of family members and if that list is short, then they move on to their pets, their neighbors pets, and who knows what else after that.

If you want to be legit, be thankful all year long and SHOW your appreciation through small acts of kindness towards those you love.

And the Thanksgiving dinner?!?! Of course I like food...but why spend days preparing for one ahort meal of engorgement followed by hours of cleanup? Order in pizza and call it a day.

Call me the grinch of Thanksgiving. The only part I like out of all of it is the wine and box stuffing with gravy from a jar.

Enough said. I'm retreating back into my grinch mountain cave.

Mommy and I enjoyed relaxing today. I fell asleep in Mommy's arms while we were watching MASH together.

We can't wait to see you soon. It's hard for Mommy with all the unknowns, but we are doing pretty good otherwise.

Our favorite thing to do is sleep in and then I eat and talk to Mommy for a little while. Pretty soon I will be talking to you too Daddy!

Hugs and milky kisses

Dear Daddy

Mommy and I ran all around town today with Nana. We went to the post office, grocery store, baby store, clothes store, and had lunch with Aunt M! I grossed Aunt M out by puking down the side of her nice black dress pants and shoes.

I was pretty fussy again today, but finally fell asleep around 5pm and slept for 3 whole hours. Mommy couldn't believe it and kept checking on me.

Tomorrow Mommy and I are doing nothing but laundry, work out, watch tv, and snuggle and sleep a lot! Oh, and I might get a bath. Yeah me!!!

Love you Daddy. Miss you lots.

Dear Daddy

My happy phase came to an abrupt end yesterday. Mommy is at her wits end trying to figure out what happened and why the turn of events. I've been crying for the past 4 hours, not to mention all the crying that I did today. I got so worked up that Mommy ended up having to put on headphones on the ride back from SAFB.

On a good note, I'm eating a ton and continuing to do a lot of baby talking (during the good moments). Mommy says I'm either talking, screaming, or snoring. Today Mommy got in the shower twice just to chill out and try and mentally relax. She tries so hard to be calm and happy around me, but I know my fussing is putting her patience to the test.

Both Mommy and I can't wait to be with you!

Hugs and kisses.

Dear Daddy

I'm growing so fast...Mommy can hardly believe that I'm now at 12 lbs and 23 inches long.

I'm holding my head up now and even trying to lean forward on my own. Here I come Grandpa W! You said you'd watch me when I can hold my head up!

I like standing up (Mommy keeps me from not falling over). I really don't like tummy time unless I'm  laying on Mommy's chest, and today I started sleeping a full three hours at a time. When I'm awake in between naps, I like to lay on my play mat with a few toys to entertain me above my head, watch TV with Mommy - sitting up like a big girl in Mommy's arms, or sit in my bouncy seat watching Mommy.

If people are talking to each other and not paying attention to me...I get fussy. I love attention but loud noises and loud voices or yelling scares me and I cry. Mommy can't yell at Teddy (dog) anymore because I get upset. It's my sneaky way of letting Teddy do whatever he wants. We made a pact back when he was my protector while I was still in Mommy's belly.

I can't wait to be with you again Daddy. We are going to have so much fun together! Love you.

Mommy and I watched Despicable Me and we loved it! I watched the whole thing on Mommy's lap and tried to talk with the little minions. Mommy thought I was hilarious.

I had a great day today. Only fussed a few times, ate lots of yummy formula milk, and napped like a champ.

I loved seeing you on FaceTime!!!

Mommy got her camo Cardinals shirt in the mail today. She was so excited and can't wait to wear it tomorrow. We'll take a picture and send it to you!

Yesterday at Nana's birthday party, Mommy gave me the tiniest bit of cake frosting and ice cream. I loved it and kept smacking my lips for more. Don't worry Daddy! I promise not to eat a lot of sweet stuff and junk food! Mommy just wanted to see how I would react to anything other than milk.

So we tried a teaspoon of watery baby cereal this morning, but I didn't like it as much. I wanted my milk instead!

We love you and miss you soooo much. Get better soon!

Dear Daddy

Did you like the video Mommy posted of me playing with my hands? I'm getting pretty good at bringing my hands to my mouth now.

We had a great day that is being followed by the beginnings of a rough night. I've had two baths so far today and one of Mommy's favorite onesies bit the dust. It was just to nasty. :0)

I missed seeing you on the computer today. We'll have to try and make it happen tomorrow!

Mommy has been having some rough moments. She misses you a lot. We read your storybook and practice saying Daddy all the time! Mommy says that she hopes you are my first word because then you'll have to be the one to take care of me more often as I'll be calling for you.

Everyone is saying I'm getting prettier as the days go by. You had better sharpen up your shooting skills for when I get older!

Sending you kisses,
Your baby girl
