Miles: Months 1, 2, and 3

Dear Miles (my sweet little pumpkin),

I can't believe that you are three months old today. These three months have been so wonderful. You are such an adorable and sweet little baby. You have grown a lot since July... I won't know exactly how much until next month but last month you weighed 12 pounds 4 ounces and you were 22 inches long. The doctor is proud of your growth and says you are perfect. :)

You still nurse every 2-4 hours, but normally it's every 2 or 2 and half. You do go 3-4 hours between bottles at the babysitters. Nursing has gotten a lot easier for you, you don't choke nearly as much now (yay!!). You sleep one good stretch most nights from 10 p.m. to 4 a.m. After that you wake up every 2-3 hours to eat. I can't complain though... you've never had your days and nights mixed up and we appreciate that.
Your sister loves you soooooo much. She kisses your head all day long and says how handsome you are. She also calls you her little pumpkin and her baby "bruver". She is so proud of you. Your nicknames are handsome, punkin munkin, pumpkin, pumpkin pie, punkin munkin pie, and buck (daddy calls you that). You are a such an easy baby. You are so laid back. You let anyone hold you and you rarely cry. You are happy most of the time... although we've been having a few melt downs here and there where you seem to be inconsolable, I think it is when you are over tired. Those moments don't happen often though.
 You smile all the time. Anytime I look at you and smile, you grin right back and then I kiss your face off. :)
You are wearing 3-6 month clothing and size 2 diapers. I got a Beco Gemini baby carrier and wear you when we go shopping and to the park and you seem content in it. You have discovered you hands and suck on your fists all the time. You like to lay on your back and roll from side to side but you haven't rolled over yet. You don't care for tummy time... most of the time you don't try to lift your head, you just lay there and suck on your fists. You are very strong though and you don't mind tummy time if it's on mommy or daddy's chest.
We love you so much. Seriously. I kiss your chubby little cheeks all day long. I'm so glad God is letting us call you ours, but we know that you are His. You are such a blessing in our lives.

To the moon and back,
Mommy (and Daddy and Emerie)
