Dear sweet baby Jack,
You are 12 weeks old today.
84 days to be exact.
3 months in the world and I can hardly believe it. It seems as if we waited for you forever and now you have already been in the world for 3 months. A quarter of a year.
Each day brings such joy.
Now don’t get me wrong. There are days when you are a pill.
A crying, pooping, nothing can make you happy pill.
But when you are I hang out in the mornings and you smile at me with that “whole face” smile, I melt just a little every time. You like to sit in your bouncy seat and laugh and talk to your friends the tiger, the elephant and the giraffe.
You also like to lay on your activity mat. The star that lights up and plays classical music is your favorite.
You recognize the people you love now. You will look around until you find the face you are looking for. Sometimes when you spot your person, it’s a smile and a laugh and sometimes it’s a yell for your Mommy. She has the special juice that you love so much.
You are getting easier to take places now. You still don’t love the car but you are such a good baby and it’s fun to watch as your family loves on you. They get excited when you are around and some might even act silly.
There is nothing cuter than a sleeping baby and you sleep best when someone is holding you. You love to be patted and cuddled even when that means the rest of get nothing done. Look at those eyelashes. You are gorgeous little boy.
You love to be sung to and sometimes you like your stroller. Your mommy wraps you up in your papoose or as sometimes it referred to as “the straight jacket.”
This weekend we went to the museum. Do you care? No of course not. But you were the best little boy and it was so fun to make memories with you. Pops and I are already talking about all the fun we will have with you when you are a little older and we can sweep you away for adventures.
Jack, you are the first grandchild and we wonder what we ever did without you?
We have a wonderful, full and exciting life but with you in it, it’s just better.
We love you to the moon and back and so much further.
You are forever our blueberry.
Much love you big 3 month old.
BB and Pops
