Almost 3 MONTHS !?

Dear Tins,

This week, week 12 was monumental!

You rolled over for the first time!(9/29/16) Your daddy and I proud as can be cheered you on in the doctors office, because yes, that is where you choose to roll over for the very first time! We are very appreciative that you choose to do it where A. we have a witness and B. could be together. GOOO TINLEY!!

You also got your shots which was probably just as hard for me to watch, as it was for you to get them. We were both crying messes! Daddy had to be the strong one. When the nurse was all finished I scooped you up quick as I could. Then the nurse and daddy looked at us and said, "oh no" thats when I looked at your little chunky leg and it was all bloody along with your blanket and my shirt. Oh the irony, you get shots and I walk out of the doctors with smeared make-up and a blood stained shirt. Motherhood.

Early in the week you also reached upward for mommy and daddy's hands as we placed them in front of your face and oh how that warmed our parental hearts. Seeing you learn to use your hand-eye coordination is so amazing. Everything you do is amazing to us though.

I also noticed that you started noticing your big kitty brother Auto, and tracked him around the room for a bit! I have a feeling you two are going to be the best of friends.

A typical night for you? Sleeping!? Well, you are great at that too! This week you have slept through the night a total of 3 nights and we are only at Thursday as I write this!

A typical day for ? You usually wake around 8:30 or 9 a.m. and want to eat, soon after you happily wake up smiling and cooing. You have your most alert period from about 9 to noon in which you look all around. During this time we take a walk, read, and do belly time on the play mat. After this, you are usually pretty tired and take a nap and then want to be held and cuddled throughout the evening.

You have also found your thumb which you vigorously suck in the absence of you paci and you are also drooling now. Quite a bit! Other mommas tell me its normal!

You are cooing and talking in your little baby gurgles, but we are still patiently waiting for a little belly laugh!

I could go on and on, but here soon you will need to be fed. Speaking of feeding you have almost made it to your third month of being exclusively breast fed. Which is really great for your health so, I am celebrating the blessing of being able to provide this for you!
