Three months

Dear child of mine,

We made it to three months, and it just keeps getting better. You are an absolutely delightful chunk of a girl. The last time we weighed you, you were right around 15 pounds, which Momma's back and shoulders can attest to. You are still generous with your adorable smiles, and you love being held by just about anyone. Except right before bedtime when only momma will do.
You've started rolling onto your side from your back consistently, especially when you have your paci in your mouth. It's like you're trying to protect the paci from prying hands or from falling out. You roll over, hunch your shoulders, and fold your hands over your chest like you're praying. It is adorable (can you hear my enunciation? Ah.dor.ahble).
You also love playing with your monkey bird, which is a ball-shaped monkey that jingles with crinkly arms that look like wings. Daddy named it because it looks like an angry bird/monkey hybrid, and the name stuck. Regardless, you adore the monkey bird except when Momma makes it attack you like a flying monkey. That was a lapse in judgment on my part, but once the flying monkey morphed back into the monkey bird, you recovered.
You had your first flights, trip to west Texas, and first time in the church nursery this month. Momma went to Ladies' Bible study last week and left you for the first time with a non family member. As expected, you charmed her and then took a good nap. Because, as I tell you often, you are the best baby and my favorite baby in the whole world. We also discuss that when you have future sibling(s) they will usurp that title, but you will always be my favorite oldest daughter. :)
You are extremely blessed with lots of people who love you, and you have logged lots of Skype and FaceTime hours. We are so proud to be your parents. We will do everything in our power to keep you safe and introduce you to Jesus. We pray that you will continue to be joyful and kind as you grow and that we have the wisdom and grace to parent you well. Daddy and I are head over heels for you baby girl, and we're loving seeing your personality develop more every day.

All the love,
