What a week we have had!!Â All of a sudden, you do not want to sleep.Â Mommy and Daddy are walking zombies….Yawn.Â We are looking forward to the night’s rest you were giving us last week.
You are growing up and getting so big!Â We went to our favorite sushi restaurant and all the people that saw you were saying what a BIG baby you are.Â You are such a charmer, you smiled at everyone whenever they talked to you!Â You did very well for a while, but at the end of dinner, you were screaming like crazy and we had to hurry up to leave.Â Then, we got about a mile away in the car and had to stop because you would not stop crying.
You do not like to drink from a bottle now.Â You will do it, but you sure let us know that you prefer your milk straight from the source: MOMMY.Â It has been a struggle this week for you and we are very sorry it has been so hard for you.
You have begun to snuggle in real tight when we pick you up.Â We love your snuggly hugs so much.Â You love to nuzzle in and take a nap on Mommy during the day.Â I love that sweet, precious time together.
Nana bought you Leap Frog Fridge Phonic MagnetsÂ for Christmas.Â When you press the bottom, whichever letter of the alphabet will play its own song.Â For example, it will say:
“A says ‘A’ and A says ‘Aah,’ every letter makes a sound.Â ‘A’ says ‘A’ and ‘Aah.'”
To which, you squeal with delight.
Aunt Angie bought you Learn Along Lily and we like to play it for you.Â It goes like this:
“Hi, I’m Lily.Â Sing a counting song with me.” (music plays) “1, 2, 3…4, 5, 6…7, 8, 9…TEN!”
You love that toy too.Â We love to see your all-over smiles when you play.
You have now outgrown all the newborn clothes that were far too big for you when we brought you home.Â You are not quite three months old, but are fitting into the three to six month clothes well.Â You are such a little girl now.Â I cannot believe how big you have gotten in such a short time.
Overall, you are a very content baby and very easily soothed.Â You love people and love to be sung to.Â Mommy and Daddy do not have much in their reportoire just yet, but we are working on it.Â You do not seem to notice that we cannot carry a tune.
You are grabbing things now.Â When we change you, sometimes you have a tight grip on your sleeve and we have to release your vise-like grip from it so we can take your shirt off.Â You have been caught with strands of Mommy’s hair between your fingers.
You are so aware of your surroundings now.Â We just came from lunch with Mike, Nadine, and their two children.Â You were the perfect angel, just watching everyone, without making a peep.
Tomorrow, Mommy and Daddy are going to do their long walk (for Daddy), and long run (for Mommy).Â You like being in the stroller and usually go to sleep or just watch everything around you.Â Either way, you are normally content no matter where you are.
Your smile lights up our day.Â We fall more and more in love with you each week.Â We look forward to those times when you snuggle tightly intoÂ us.Â We love you so much Allison.Â It makes us cry.
