My baby is 3 months old

Ella turned three months old last Friday. I can't believe how fast the time has gone. I love this age. It is at this age with all my children that I can take a breath and realize that I am going to be OK and that I will survive. I also love this age because you start to get a little glimpse of their personalities and you begin to see the little person that they will become. Here is what I know about Ella:
1. She is a bit of a drama queen. Both Landon and Tori were really easy going babies. Ella, while not colicky, is a crier. Not only is she a crier but she s a persistent crier, she cries until she gets what she wants.
2. On the other hand Ella is such a smiley and interactive baby. It isn't hard to get her to smile and is very "talkative". when you talk to her she coos right back as if she has very interesting things to add to the conversation. It is very cute.
3. Ella is a eater. Now a lot of people might think that this is a given with all babies and hardly something to be excited over. Well when Landon was a baby it was like pulling teeth to get him to eat, so the fact that Tori and Ella love eating makes me very happy.
4. Ella is a good sleeper. I have been VERY lucky in that all my children have been very good sleepers from a very young age. Ella was sleeping through the night at about 6 weeks old. She has regressed a little since then and usually wakes up once during the night, but she usually just eats and goes right back to sleep.
5. Ella hasn't learned to roll over or done any of the big, fun physical stuff yet, but I am OK with that. I have learned that kids will learn new things when they are ready. Plus the longer she immobile the better (to a certain extent).

Wow,.. 3 months,.. that's so old! I know little Eliza is starting to be a lot more interactive and trying to burst out of the restrictions of her body and do all the things she's been unable to do for lack of muscles haha. Ella is probably starting that age it's the fun time,.. they start being aware of their surroundings and trying out everything they can. I love to watch their little wonder and experimentation. They have such patience and innocent determination. It is wonderful. It is truly amazing that none of us ever gave up when we were babies because I can't imagine how hard it is to build all of your muscles and start learning to do things that are very frustrating to not be able to do. But when you don't know any better you just keep trying to do everything you can and the determination is amazing to me,.. It's something we can all take lessons from like it says in the scriptures to become like a little child,.. we limit ourselves,.. babies have no limits until they learn to think otherwise. Sorry,.. had an epiphany and I like to be long winded I guess.

She's such a doll. I can't believe she's 3 months old already. She will probably be one before I get to see her!!! So sad!
