3 Months

My beautiful little Rose,

Time is passing a little too quickly for me, and you have grown a little too much for my liking. I know that is part of life and there with be many new and great days ahead as you grow but my heart is a little sad that you are not my brand new baby anymore.

You are alter and more aware of your surroundings this month.  I feel your personality is slowing starting to emerge. Although I do think you are a happy baby, you are definity more on the serious side. When presented with something new or unfamiliar I see you taking your time and making a real decision whether you will smile at it or not. And you do like to save your smiles for only the best toys and people.

You continue to "talk" more and more with a growing demand to have a response from who ever you are conversing with. And you will often let a big sigh out when you are not satisfied with the answer given.

This past month your Father and I have really started our baby sign with you. The three signs we have started using are, "change" (for diaper changes), "all done", and "milk". Right now the big challenge is for us to remember to sign them to you before each activity. I really don't know if you know what each sign is but hopefully in the coming months you will pick it up.

This month it has been made very clear that you take after your Father and get very grumpy when you don't get enough sleep. And yet you have not liked going down for your naps and will often only sleep for 30 minutes, which is definity not enough for you. It is an area we will be working on this coming month my sweet Rose.

I have found that this month I have not needed to hold you as much during the day as you have slow started to become more interested in your toys. And for a few moments at a time I'm able to put you in your "baby einstein" chair, give you a toy and I can get a little bit of housework done. This milestone is bittersweet for me. It is nice to be able to get a few things done, but it means I don't get as many cuddles during the day.

Oh my sweet baby I really do love to hold and to cuddle with you. I love to feel your little hands grab hold of my clothes so tightly as if you are trying to say "mommy don't ever let me go". I love the touch of your sweets cheeks on mine and the wonderful sweet baby smell you have. In those moments I wish you would never grow up. That time would stand still, and that you always be my little baby Rose. Who would always give me those sweet toothless grins and long to cuddle the whole day.

But this is not so, and there are lots of wonderful moments to come. And I hope and pray that I can lead and guide you to become the beautiful women inside and out that I know you can be.

I love you so much and I am looking forward to the next month and all the adventurers it will bring.
