The Bird: Three Months

Baby Bird,

You are three months old today! You're growing and changing so fast that Momma is having trouble keeping up.

Every morning, we get up with the sun and cuddle in the quiet living room. Mornings with you are my favorite - you share your best smiles in those sweet early hours. You let me drink warm coffee while you play with my hair and we talk about what we're going to do that day. I wouldn't trade those moments for the world.

Every day you discover something new. You've figured out how to pick up your rattle ball and almost have rolling over worked out. You know Daddy's and my voice and will turn to find us in the room. You're friendly to new people, but have a definite preference for folks you know. You hate tummy time on the floor, but will lay on my chest for hours. You giggle on occasion (especially when Daddy looks at you upside down), and the sound melts my heart. You love lights, ceiling fans, and the color blue.

Little Girl, you are amazing. There are days I just stare at you in wonder. I am so thankful I get to be your Momma.

You've changed my life in so many amazing ways. You've taught me to rest in and enjoy the quiet moments, to focus on the right now. You've made me realize how big the little things can be (and how little the "big" things are). You've both sped time up and slowed it down.

Because of you I've developed a new appreciation for God's love, provision, grace, and constancy. I feel totally out of control, but at peace with it because of who IS in control. He chose me to be your Momma, and He will provide me with the ability to do so. Great is His faithfulness.

You are a blessing and a thrill and I am so thankful you're mine. I love you endlessly, Baby Bird. I will forever.

Happy Three Months!
