Three Months with Molly

Keeping it real!

Dear Molly,

We've graduated from the fourth trimester! You are getting so big and active. You've discovered your hands and find it delightful to pass the time looking at yourself in the mirror. Your "words" have really expanded and it almost feels like you are having a conversation with us. Pop Pop and I spent hours just playing with you.

This month, I feel that we have conquered your hatred of tummy time but that might be due to your new skill of rolling. You don't do it a lot and you can only go from your tummy to your back but you ROLL! You also love to "stand up" and I bought you a Bumbo chair, just so you can sit. You could spend hours sitting in that chair. You don't because I worry that it would be bad for you to sit in the chair for that long. I worry about a lot of things but not nearly as many as I thought I would before I became your Mother. Your chill attitude has helped me stay laid back and calm (ish).

We attended a baby story time session at the local library and you had so much fun. We'll be going back as much as possible. There was song singing, hand clapping and of course book reading. The half hour passed very quickly and you were ready for more. You were quite fascinated with the other babies.

You are an amazing sleeper (I may be struck for saying that but you really are). You tend to sleep from 11 p.m. to about 6 a.m. most nights. I've noticed that you only wake up in the middle of the night during a growth spurt when you need more milks to grow big and strong. You don't nap very long during the day but you do take consistent naps. I'm just happy that you like to sleep because sleep is so very important.

You and I are building a routine which is good for both of us. Twice a week, we have Grandma over after her outpatient rehab sessions. The two of you usually nap but it is nice to have her over. Grandpa loves picking her up because it means that he gets to spend time holding you. That man LOVES you so much and loves holding you.


Pop Pop and I are settling into this parenthood gig. We still can't believe that we are somebody's parents but we are so happy to be your parents. We can't wait to see what this next month brings. You are growing up so fast and we are trying so hard to enjoy as many moments as we can before they slip past us. We love you so very much.
