i would say you are my favorite one in town

Lu at 3 months: 

Smiles at everyone (though I'm convinced she saves the best smiles for me.) 
Is VOCAL. She doesn't really babble- she mostly yells. She's got a loud voice for such a tiny body. When we read to her at night she squawks along with us and it's my faaaavorite! 
We say "she's happy... until she's not" Lu is a generally easy going, happy baby- but when she's hungry/sad/mad/tired/bothered she lets us know. I actually love it because her sad face is about the cutest thing I've ever seen. 
She loves the solly wrap and the hiking pack. We end up using one or the other in the late afternoon while I make dinner. 
She looks so wide-eyed and serious the entire time when we walk or jog in her stroller.
She is just starting to really belly laugh- it's like that half cry half laugh and it's the best sound in the world. 
She's up once a night to eat (praise heaven!) and sleeping in her crib in her room
She rolls over! From tummy to back on both sides. 
She loves tummy time, which always surprises me because a few weeks ago it was not so great. 
She is unbelievably happy when she wakes up every morning. It's my absolute favorite time of day with her (plus babies in pajamas makes me want to die of cuteness) I always bring her in bed with me and she squawks and smiles and laughs. 
She eats 4 oz every 3 hours or so 
She is curious and alert 
Whenever she wakes up from a nap she looks around the room- serious and slow with a furrowed brow. We call it "looking over her kingdom" ...making sure everything is as she left it. 
She is just starting (as in the past couple days) to get a little worried when someone other than Mom or Dad pick her up. 
I sing to her all day and she coos back with me.  
This is my favorite song to sing to her right now. 
And this is my favorite book to read. (Order it ASAP) 
James Taylor pandora calms her down every time. 
We call her Lu, Lulu, Little Lu, Goose, Sister, or The Baby (I love that last one because Landon refers to me as "The Mom") 

It's unbelievable how much this little girl has changed our lives. She is the most amazing person. I can't believe she is here, and I can't believe she is ours. We love you so much, Lu girl.
