Three months

Dear Peyton,

You are three months old!

This month you really started smiling and we have so much fun getting smiles out of you! You don't laugh very much yet but when you do it's a breathy little giggle and it's so funny that we try to get you to keep doing it. You especially think your daddy is funny and you laugh the most for him. You also ADORE your Uncle Colby and will just smile and smile at him while he talks to you.
You love your hands! You like to grab things and you especially like to chew on your fingers. You don't wear mittens quite as much anymore because they get wet from all the chewing! You also learned to pull them off and sometimes your first mitten is off before I can get the second one on! Your hands are still cold a lot.
You have started to take an interest in toys and are learning to hold them yourself. Your favorites seem to be rattles. You are getting better at holding your head up! You don't particularly like tummy time but we work on it every day, along with some neck exercises. You seem proud of yourself when you hold your head up high.
You moved to the big bathtub this month - no more baby tub! With all your kicking and splashing you just didn't fit in the baby tub anymore and you are thrilled with your new "freedom" in the big tub. We can tell from all the splashing.
You are wearing 0-3 month clothes and just a few 3 month outfits. You wear size 1 diapers, but still wear cloth diapers often. You like to nurse for 5-10 minutes every 2 1/2 to 3 hours and then you like to make lots of funny faces. In the afternoon you usually take a 3 hour nap.
At an appointment this month you were 12 lbs. You are in the 10th percentile for weight and the 4th percentile for length. You're a tiny little thing but that's ok! Mama says you can stay little as long as you want.
It's hard to imagine our family before you were in it, little bug.
We love you!
