Getting To Know You: You're 3 Months Old

Dear Sullivan:

I know I am several days late posting about you being 3 months old, which you turned on Christmas Eve. With a boatload of holiday festivities and an unexpected ER trip for your brother, I was just overwhelmed. But that's no excuse. There were some ups and downs with your 1st X-Mas but the moments that truly mattered we're amazing. You were a great gift this year. You mean so much to me and I don't want you to think that I'm too busy or that you're not worth the time it takes to put a birthday blog together. I would punch a tiger in the face for you so I should be able to whip these up on time.

Bottom line: you are 3 months old! Holy COW!

You are still such a solid dude, growing bigger and stronger every day. You're going to surpass your brother in the weight department the way you're heading! You've got crazy red spikes and strangers are always sneaking a peak at your adorable mug. And you're a total GOOFBALL! Always laughing and chatting, smiling and dancing. You're really funny for being so little. I love the sound of your voice when you babble. You're just a very content little dude.

I don't want to constantly compare you to your brother but you're both so different while having so much in common. You're more rough and rumble but like him, you're also laid back and easy going, totally hilarious and adorable, very independent, yet bonded to mommy and daddy. You're alert and interested and you soak everything in. Daddy calls it "Observation Mode" when Spencer does're following suit. You like being read to, you like when I sing ABC/Twinkle Twinkle just like Spencer, and you LIKE Spencer, and he likes you. I'm so glad that in 3 short months, you guys are already such pals. He lights up when he sees you. Everyone does. You're a dream baby. I'm so very lucky to be your mommy.

But one way that you're different??? You fart like a grown MAN. And when you's epic! EPIC! I've never seen a baby explode quite like you. And you're so HAPPY about it. I think you have a devious, mischievous side of you and it cracks me up. You ooze personality, and sometimes it oozes out of your buns. You're SUCH A BOY!

I've enjoyed every moment of these past 3 months. Especially the little moments like now as you're holding my fingers as I type. I can't wait to see who you become but PLEASE don't grow up too fast! And even if you do, because these 3 months have FLOWN BY, you're going to be my baby boy for life.

I love you, Sully Banana!
