three months. (belatedly)

dear oliver fox,

(also known as mr. handsome, little monster, sweet boy, or olly pie)

from two months to three months, you have taken off like a sprout! you have totally mastered holding your head up when you are sitting up, have been making crazy progress with tummy time, are working on that hand eye coordination, are so much more vocal, sleeping almost 8 hours through the night, are great with friends/strangers alike, look at us when we talk to you, follow objects with your eyes and have even rolled over a few times.

since you don't have a doctor's appointment this month, i tried weighing you like we used to weigh our family cats--i get on the scale, then weigh myself again when i'm holding you. if this method is to be trusted, you are close to 15 pounds! you are still in some 3 month clothes, but can wear up to 9 months, depending on the brand. you wear a tight 2 or loose 3 in diapers and you are getting strong when you grab my hair, or swat me in the face.

that aside, i hesitate to say that you are a perfect baby because i don't want to jinx us, but you totally are. you make me laugh everyday and i love you so so much more every single day.

i'm so happy that i was picked to be in charge of you, little mister. i'm lucky to be your mama.
