My Dearest Little - Three Month Letter

I know this is late - but it is better than never.

My dearest little one,

I cannot believe that another month has come and gone.  It seems like just yesterday you were wanting to come out and meet the world.  You are now a big 3 month old little man and filling our hearts and home with joy and love each and every day.

3 months was a big one for you.  We started out the month working on more tummy time.  Although you are good at it, you definitely only want to do it when it is convenient for you.  You will be happy as clam on your own terms, but if you don't want to do it you have no problem letting anyone know.  You have successfully been holding your head up on your own now with only a little assist when it somehow falls to the side. ::you really hate that::

We had lots of fun with your friends Abby and Emma.  Abby Grace always loves seeing "the baby!" and Emma Rose loves that she can now sit and talk to you.  I love that you all are close in age and love each other.

I left you for the first time this month with someone other than your Mima or Grandma/Pop.  It was your Aunt Leslie, but still.  Big step for your mama little one, I'm a little emotional still.  You did great and it was good for mommy to get out also.  Aunt Leslie found a monkey in your toy box and it is now your favorite toy.  We take it everywhere we go.

Another big thing you did this month was go meet your Great-Grandma. I am still so sad that you will never really get to know her, but don't worry, Mima and I will tell you all about her.  She is a funny lady that you would have loved to hang out with.  While we visited her you did great.  You were smiling and happy the whole time we were there.  She loves babies and was so happy to see you.

Veteran's Day came around and it happened to be on your daddy's day off from work so we explored the city all day long.  We went from place to place and enjoyed wonderful food and treats to honor those who have helped keep our freedom, including your daddy.

As a wonderful surprise your Aunt Lorraine came to town, from Maryland, and you got to meet her.  We spent an afternoon with her, Aunt Leslie and Mima.  You were such a good boy and she loved getting to meet you.

Maybe one of the biggest things we tried this month was the Bumbo!  We got it off the military yard sale site on Facebook and it is great!  You love it!  The first time you tried it you couldn't stop laughing and smiling.  I am still so amazed at how big you are getting.

You celebrated another holiday this month - Thanksgiving.  You weren't too impressed, probably because you couldn't eat any mashed potatoes, but let me tell you - next year, you will love it.  It was nice.  We got to see both sides of the family and you were such a good little turkey.

I love you so much Caleb Tyler.  I know I tell you so many times throughout the day but it is still just as true.  I can't wait to see how the next month goes and what milestones you will hit next.  Mommy will always love you snuggle muffin!
