Baby Love-3 Months


You are 3 months old! You are trying so hard to laugh. For now it sounds like a raspy little grunt and it is oh so cute...just like you :) You recently had a double ear infection which makes ear infection #2 and #3 for you. We are also still working on your tummy issues. Your little intestinal track is just not quite mature enough yet but we are working through it. We just can't get enough of you! I love that you look like me. You have discovered your feet. You can't grab them yet but you stare at them and wiggle your toes as you watch in amazement at what you can do! We are just as proud as you are! I love to watch you observe the big wide world around you. I can't wait to know what you are thinking and what you will love. You are sweet, pouty, CuDdLy, squishy, and soft. But most of all...
You are perfect.
A little pouty...
But absolutely perfect.
I love you.
Your Daddy loves you.

Your sister loves you.
You are perfect.
Can I just say that I am more confident now more than ever that being a Mommy is THE hardest job in the world...but the most wonderful at the same time. Wonderful doesn't even describe the feeling. There are no words to describe what it means to be a mommy. As hard as it is, it brings more joy and happiness to my heart than anything else in the world. The job is demanding but my kids are who I am driven to work the hardest for. It's not even work...it's a passion. It makes me happy. They are my heart. They are my world. There are so many things no one ever prepares you for when you become a Mommy for the first time...shooting poo 3 ft over the changing table onto the wall, being shot with pee that puddles in your ear while changing diapers, wearing the same shirt with spit up on it for 3 days because you can't find time to change it, the fear that comes with the thought of ANYTHING ever happening to them. I mean, I panic when Ella skins her knee and when Luca sleeps too long. I may or may not have made a freak out crying scene when Ella tripped over her feet and bumped her head at the park. Being a Mommy can make you crazy!!! This is not my first time to be a Mommy...so I'm not sure these are things anyone could prepare you for if they tried because I've learned these things don't get any easier the second time around. But in the good, the bad, and the ugly, the hardest day at home is still one of the best days of my life. Each day comes with so much joy and when I look into their eyes, I melt. I am a fool for my babies. Something I have learned the second time around is to hold them closer and cherish every moment...the multiple late night feedings and even the sleepless nights...because it all goes by too fast! And here's one more picture...just because he's so darn cute :)
