Fantastic Four Months

To our dearest Doodle Bug,
Today would have been your 3 month birthday.  Instead, we're celebrating the fact that you are almost 19 weeks old!  You have started following your daddy and me whenever we walk into the room or whenever we sing to you.  Your have been perfecting your smile over the last 2 weeks and you love strangers! Your eyes glow (just like your Nana's) when your face lights up.  Your favorite time of day is the morning when mommy comes to wake you up and we sing "good morning, good morning, good morning to you"  You love to snuggle with daddy after mommy feeds you in the morning while she gets ready.  You've grown to like your daily nap in the car seat on the way to mommy's office every morning (although it's about the only nap you take). You have a way of telling us you don't like what you're wearing - and it typically involves a wardrobe change and Baby Oxyclean on either the shirt or pants - or both! You are coming around on the paci, although I think you really would like to eat your own fingers instead.  Although you don't get to see mommy at night before bed most nights, you thoroughly enjoy your bottle and bonding with daddy and an occasional visit from your Nana (daddy's mommy). Just the other day, you started making noises and talking to us. You sure do have a lot to say.  Today you even started singing with the music that was playing. You are changing more and more each day.  We can't wait to see what the next month holds for you! 
You saw Dr. Nick today, and although that nurse hurt you so bad with those shots, you faired pretty well (you had all of that tolerance built up from the heel pricks).  You checked out great, and these were your stats:
Weight - 15 lbs 5 oz - 80th percentile
Length - 24.75 inches - 20th percentile
Head - 15 inches - 5th percentile.
You have lots of growing to do....we're just not sure we're ready for it yet.
We love you, right up to the moon and back,
Mommy and Daddy
