3 Months Old

Friday, May 9, 2014

Dear Jacob,
Now that you are three months old we are starting to catch a glimpse of your personality, and my is it a big one!

You discovered your hands a while ago, and since that moment they have constantly been in your mouth.
Actually, everything you come in contact with goes into your mouth. 
Whether its your blankets, toys, your shirt or Mommy's shoulder you are always trying to leave a mark of slobber on everything. 

You have found your voice and it is constantly reaching new decimals every day. Your Daddy and I have always been known for being loud, so it's no surprise that you are following in our footsteps. It is clear that the Cravinho household is not going to be a quiet one.
You love to chat, and everything you are trying to say sounds super important (even though I haven't a clue what it is). Sometimes you chat in order to get our attention, and other times you chat because you realize that you have our full attention. You have also started talking when you are on your own playing with your toys, which we find highly entertaining. 
You love to laugh, and whenever you giggle so does everyone else in the room.
Your laugh sounds a bit like you are hyperventilating, and I love to hear that precious little sound.
You love attention, and will whine if you feel like you aren't getting enough. 

You still take lots of naps throughout the day. Some days they are longer and other days they are shorter. We have no problem getting you to bed at night, and you usually go down between 9-10pm. You've started sleeping until 5am, and even then you only wake up to eat and then we go back to sleep for another hour or two. 

You have full control of your neck now, and can hold it up on your own without a problem. You love to sit up (with our help) and feel like you are a part of the conversation. You are also finding tummy time more enjoyable, even though you tend to get frustrated after a while. 

When you went in for your 2 month check-up you weighed 14 pounds. We are guessing that you are definitely over 15 pounds at this point, but won't find out for sure until your 4 month appointment.
You are currently wearing 3-6 month clothes, and are looking bigger every day.
The very little hair you have left is brown, and your eyes are still very blue. 

Jacob, you bring so much joy to every one around you. Your smile is intoxicating, and we can't get over how happy you always are. You are such a blessing and continue to make us smile every single day.
