THREE MONTHS

Gabriel was three-months-old yesterday.
Oh my little Giblet!
How you've changed.
You are smiley. So smiley and happy.
You are ffascinated by everything. You could look and look for hours.
You have figured out that you have hands. They are constantly in your mouth. You have semi figured out how to grab things. Sometimes I think you know you're grabbing and other times I don't think you realize it.
You noticed your toes the other day and tried to go after those piggies.
You are super gassy. Most mornings you wake yourself up by farting...I don't know who is to blame for this one.
You are vocal. You love to screech and sing and giggle and gurgle. You rarely fuss or cry.
You are getting stronger. Your tummy muscles are working overtime now as you try to pull yourself up in your chair or when playing on the ground.
You have to be situated looking over the shoulder or facing outward when being held so you can see your surroundings.
You still nurse/eat about every three hours. We've started extending it at night, but sometimes you just won't stand to go longer than three hours. A dude's gotta eat!
You are sleeping longer at night...sometimes. Last night you went down at 7:45 p.m. and woke me up at 1:20 a.m. to eat. Then again at 4:30 a.m. Some nights you wake up more than once and other nights you only wake up once.
You love stretching out your legs all the way to the very tips of your toes.
You love to kick your legs and pumps your arms. You're a mover!
You don't like being swaddled. You scream and scream until we unswaddle you and then you usually fall right to sleep.
You might be teething. Might. But probably.
You love being outside and going for walks.
We love you and can hardly believe you have already been a part of our lives for three months!
