3 Months

It's been quite some time since I've written but I've been trying to prepare myself for getting back to work and leaving my little munchkin.  I started back at work this past Monday after being home with Mia for the last 12 weeks.  I cried most of last week, the entire weekend and on my way into work Monday morning, most of the day at work on Monday (I'm pretty sure I almost quit about 27 times), Tuesday morning, I think you get the picture.  I was/am sad about leaving my little punkers but also sad that I was leaving Nattie, Joe, Cart and Belle.  Mia and I spent everyday over at the Weis household.  It was/is important to me that Mia is close with her cousins plus it saved my sanity being able to be with my sister.  Natalie and I have always been close but being moms together now, I think, has brought us much closer.  We bonded in a way that only sisters are able to do.  I wouldn't have made it through the first months of being a new mom if it wasn't for her.  She is a wonderful mother and I look to her for so much advice and guidance.  She truley is my best friend!!!  We had a slumber party all weekend because neither of us wanted to let the other one go....sounds a little sad but we've come to rely on each other being there every day.  It's definitely going to be another adjustment.  I write as though we never see each other...which we do almost every weekend and quite a bit during the week.  It's just different now. 
Alright enough with the mushy shit!!

My beautiful little girl is 3 months old today.  You are becoming quite the little diva lady.  I could go on and on about all the cute little things you do but I'll just touch on a few:
* You have started smiling at everything....we love it!!!  It's not just some involuntary reflexes anymore but actual little person smiles because you are excited or happy to see one of us. 
* The drool has commenced!!!  It's a new favorite thing to spit and blow bubbles at we just do it back minus the spitting.
* You recognize mommy and daddy and like to punish us now that we have upset your daily routine.  Again your little divaness is starting to show.  But you are just so damn cute that we can't get mad.
* You have found your hands.  Your father nicknamed you chocolate fingers because they are constantly in your mouth and they must taste something good!!
* The hair grabbing as also commenced.  Gotta love the long hair.  Thank god I didn't loose much while I was pregnant because it's definitely getting pulled out now. 
* Still a fabulous cuddler.  It's still hard for me to put you in your crib at night (some nights we accidently fall asleep in the big bed).
* You are starting to grab at things and stay focused for so much longer.  It's fun to see you under your play gym going to town on the rattles and whatever other hangy things are there. 
* You love bath time and being naked!!!  It instantly makes you happy when we change you or begin to take your clothes off.  Your father and I are hoping that this doesn't carry into your teenage years.....we'll need to have that conversation.  You might not be allowed out of the house until you are at least 25.
* You love to lay on your back and have us tell you how pretty you are!!!  You might get that from your mommy!!!! 

You amaze me every day!!  It's so exciting to see you grow (wish you would slow down just a little though).  Can't wait to see what this next month brings us!!!  Love you Lou Lou!!!
