How are you three months old already? I am going to blink and you will be going to school, moving out, and getting married. That is it, you can’t leave me….EVER! Ok just kidding, I know you will leave me one day, but it is sooooo far in the future I won’t worry about it now.
This month marked the time to have your first scan to check to make sure you don’t show any tumors growing and your AFP level was ok. I was a nervous wreck. You have to fast for your ultrasound and you love to eat. I was so worried that you were going to be so sad that we wouldn’t let you eat. To top if off, you also had to have blood work done. However, once again you showed Apa and I how strong and tough you are. Only one of us was allowed in when they did your blood work. It was decided that I would go in. Thomas, you are amazing. I knew it already, but this just proved it even more. You fussed the smallest amount when she put the rubber band on your arm and that was it. You made no other peeps or anything! We were in and out in less than five minutes. Whose kid are you? Apa and I both hate needles, but you took it like a CHAMP. Such a proud Mom moment for me. The ultrasound was a piece of cake and you didn’t even make a big deal of the fact that you couldn’t eat. I hope that each time it goes this smooth.
We got the results back and they did find a small cyst. They say that it is very tiny and appears to be benign so that is good. We do have to go back in a month and have it re-checked.
We celebrated Easter this month, and the Easter bunny really spoiled you. You got a rock and play chair, a zoo pass, and some toys! One lucky lucky boy!
You rolled over all by yourself twice. Once for Apa and once for me. You haven’t done it again, but that’s ok. It will come.
You graduated from the 4 ounce bottles to the 9 ounce bottles. Look at you go, you are an eating machine!
You are smiling more and more. I love it. I can usually get you to smile for me if I just talk to you. You are also working on focusing more on objects. You are working hard at seeing just what is in this new world of yours.
You had your first sleepover with out Apa and Momma too. Grandma and Grandpa had been wanting to have you overnight ever since we brought you home from the hospital. So I finally let them take you. I cried before you left, after you left, and a few times while you were gone. I was so excited when it was time to go and pick you up. I am telling you I hate when we are apart! See I wasn’t lying when I say that you can’t leave me.
You went to my old work so that I could clean out my desk. I am now officially a stay at home Mom. It was bitter sweet, but that night I rocked you to sleep when you didn’t want to stay sleeping in your bed. Those are my favorite times. Just me and you early in the morning. I hope that we have a million more just like it.
Thomas, it is amazing to be your Mom. I am so proud of you.
I love you to the moon and back.
