you are my sunshine.

Dear Lily,

I am really loving your smiles these days. They are just so genuine. You have no concept of a fake smile. You smile because you're happy. You smile when I talk to you, kiss your feet, play Pattycake, give you a bath, tickle you, dance crazy, brush my teeth, and make funny noises. You smile at strangers, at Daddy, at the ceiling fan, and at your own toots. Your smiles have to be the happiest thing I've ever seen. Instant joy! That's what they bring me.


You just turned 3 months! As of today, you weighed 12 lbs. We like to call you Li'l Lils (in a British accent) or just Lils, Lillers, Our little Lily Bug, and Baby Wiwwy (this is how your cousin Maisey says your name). You like to suck like mad on your right fist and stare at/examine your left. You try to drink your bath water and sometimes when I look away and look back, you'll have a ring of bubbles around your mouth. You think you're so sneaky. You like storytime. You sit and listen so attentively, looking at the pictures. You love to be held, facing outward. We call it your throne. You won't stay on your stomach anymore. You immediately roll onto your back. You're almost rolling from your back to your belly. Almost. You get more and more fun everyday! Happy 3 months, baby girl! We love you!!!
