Based on the fact that my two-month post and this three-month post are separately by exactly zero posts by your mommy, I think it’s safe to say that you guys are keeping her busy. Or that she’s busy shopping and eating out for lunch every day. It’s one of those two. Our credit card bill kind of points in a certain direction, but who says undeniable evidence in black and white should lead to a certain conclusion?
In any case, you guys are three months old today (actually a couple days ago, but we were tired and didn’t publish this on time), so I’m back again to memorialize the day. You guys are getting so much more aware of yourselves and your surroundings every day, and it’s so much fun to watch you grow, learn, and experience all of these new things for the first time. Here are just a few of the momentous occasions from month #3.
· Your pediatrician, Dr. Pip, told us that we need to keep you up between 5:00-8:00 so you sleep better at night. That has been loads of fun, and usually our house sounds like this during most of that time.
· You both got your two month shots so now you’re allowed to be out and about. This means your mommy takes you to lunch with friends every day and then to the mall. See opening paragraph for clarification on what that actually means. I’m just hoping we’ll have enough money to pay for college when the time comes.
· At the beginning of the month, our time with your night nurse Grace ended and mommy and I took over the night shift. Our bedtime is now 8:30 at night. It’s a little glimpse into the future, when we’re 80 years old, eat dinner at 4:00, live on Miami Beach and are asleep before the sun sets.
· We went to your friend Gavin’s house on St. Patrick’s Day for your first dinner out. You were both pretty well behaved. Probably had something to do with all the green beer we gave you.
· You’ve both started to drool and blow bubbles. Everywhere. All the time. We don’t wash your clothes anymore. You do it for us.
· Austin, you’ve started growing a mustache. I don’t even know how to make that funnier than it already is, so I’ll quit while I’m ahead: having a 3-month old son who can grow a mustache.
· Summer, you’re usually just a couple days behind Austin, but right when we think he’s getting way ahead of you, you surprise us and start to catch up. That’s great with most things but hopefully it won’t apply to growing mustaches.
· Summer, you’re talking and cooing a ton now. I suspect most of what you’re saying has to do with what you’re learning the most about at this stage in life (shopping), but who knows, maybe you’re spouting out mathematical theorems or theories of evolution?
· Austin, you started to laugh. Words can’t describe how amazing that sound is so I’ll let this video do the talking: Austin laughing
· Nothing can top that, so I’ll end it there. I’ll be back with more next month.
