Letters to Eve: 3 Months
You became three months old last week. I have mixed feelings about you being this old. It's exciting for you to grow and reach new milestones but I am also sad about the stages that you are leaving behind. You are changing so quickly. Sometimes when I'm holding you I study your face, hoping that I will be able to remember how you looked in a few weeks. I try to make the most of the time we spend together because I know that you are only going to be this little for a short time.
You are the cutest little girl I have ever seen. Your smiles are the sweetest thing. They bring me more happiness than I ever could have imagined. All of the stress and concerns I have are instantly forgotten as soon as I see that adorable little smile begin to appear. My favorite smiles are the ones you give me when you first wake up in the morning. It is as if you are letting me know that you missed me and are so happy to see me again.
I love hearing all of your little coos. They are so adorable. It is so fun to have a "conversation" with you. I will copy the little noises that you make which sometimes makes you so excited! I often make simple sounds for you to try and copy but this has not worked yet. There is one thing that you are an expert at copying though- raspberries. You love blowing raspberries. Sometimes you don't quite get it right and you just end up sticking your tongue out. It is too cute.
It is so fun to see you begin to use your hands and be able to interact with the world. Your dad and I get so excited when you grab hold of your toys, even if it is just a reflexive action. You have reached the stage where you want to put everything you grab into your mouth. That means that I'm constantly have to stop you from putting my hair in your mouth. I'm pretty sure that product covered hair isn't the best thing for a growing girl to eat.
You are finally starting to laugh! I have to work pretty hard and you have to be in the right mood, though. The easiest method is to blow raspberries on your tummy. It doesn't always work but I always try after I finish putting a new diaper on you. It only works for a few seconds but it is the cutest thing in the world! Sometimes I can also get you to laugh by making some pretty ridiculous faces. I can't wait for you to start laughing more!
I love it when you let me cuddle you. Most of the time you want to be held facing away from me but occasionally when you are tired you will let me hold you close and you will rest your head against me. Those moments are the best.
I love you so much little girl! You have brought so much happiness into my life. I am so lucky to be your mother.
