Yesterday I was 3 months old. It's tough being 3 months old. I can't really tell mom and dad what I want, so I cry a lot. I also have a hard time sleeping for more than 2 hours, so I wake up and cry so that someone will run into my room and put my pacifier in, that helps me go back to sleep......sometimes. If not, I can keep crying and someone will eventually pick me up and pat me a few times and that almost always works. I also get hungry a few times at night, but mom has that figured out. I think she is trying to break me of eating at night, but I'm not really into that idea. I mean she has starting giving this thing during the day that is kind of like her nipple, but not really. I don't mind the change as long as I get food. Honestly, I have the best of both worlds. Sometimes I nurse on mom and sometimes I use that other thing, I think mom and dad call it a bottle. They think they'll break me of the night waking, but I'm not so sure. I keep trying to tell them that I hate the car seat and the stroller, but for some reason they keep putting me in it. However, they kept putting me in the swing and I did finally give in. I don't cry in the swing anymore, only when I am tired. Then it doesn't matter where I am I cry. Maybe, one day I will stop crying in my car seat and in the stroller. I guess mom and dad would appreciate that. Plus, their pretty good to me, so I should start being more compliant......some day..........when I feel like it.........we'll see.......
In other news, I have started using my hands a lot. I am still not 100 % sure what I am supposed to do with them, but mom and dad put some cool toys in my hands and I like them. Besides mom and dad, I have three best friends, Mr. Peacock, Red, and Geo. Don't tell Mr. Peacock, but I like Red and Geo better. They seem to be more cooperative when I put them in my mouth. Oh yes, that is something else, I find my mouth so interesting. I try to put everything I hold in my mouth. If I am not holding anything then I will put my hands in my mouth and slobber everywhere. Mom and dad are constantly changing my clothes and that thing they put around my neck, I believe it's called a bib, because I slobber all over them.
I have excellent head control now. If you're wondering how I know it's because mom and dad have been sitting me in the blue Bumbo chair and I can hold my head up all by myself. I have noticed they laugh at me a lot when I sit in the blue chair. Hmmmmmmmm.......wonder why?
I can roll over from my stomach to my back, but lately I refuse to do it unless I am waking up from my nap. Did I mention I wake up early from my naps............a lot? I think it frustrates mom, because I get really grouchy if I wake up early from my nap. Mom tries to put me back to sleep, but sometimes I prefer crying over sleeping.
The other night I heard dad making this funny noise and I decided to mimic him. I overheard dad tell mom that I had laughed for the first time. They were really excited. I guess I should keep laughing. I do enjoy the reaction I get from mom and dad when I smile, gooooo, coooo, laugh, play with my toys, eat well, and sleep well.
I also overheard mom saying I was reaching all of the milestones for a 13 week old. I don't really know what that means, but I just assume it means I am AWESOME. I don't know much, but I do know that I am AWESOME and loved. Mom and dad told me so.
One last thing-----I love bath time!! Well, I love bath time unless mom is washing my hair. Seriously, how many 3 month olds do you know with this much hair. Oh well, they say it really adds to my cuteness factor, so I'll keep it, except the portion I rub off while shaking my head back and forth in a crazy manner while trying to go to sleep at night.
