3 months of sweet lucy

where to begin?
let's just start with i love you precious girl, and follow it up with a couple billion things i adore about you.

the way you talk yourself to sleep.
how you wake up so happy + your face just beams the minute it meets mine (or whoever wakes you, you definitely love your mama, but you're not biased)
how you smell + feel in my arms.
the love between you + abel... are you guys serious? you smile at him like you know what you're doing, he loves you like you're his + it really does feel sometimes like you guys already know who you are to each other + have a special connection... call me crazy, but maybe it's because you're both so new + fresh from heaven? maybe your souls knew each other before we did.
you have a sparkle in your eye like none that i've ever seen before + i swear sometimes when you sparkle i feel your papaw (my daddy's) presence out of no where... could be that heaven thing again. 
everything about you is darling as pie, from your chocolate brown hair to your chunk a dunk thigh rolls that are so squishy + soft... i mean seriously, why wouldn't that look as cute on me?!
you're such a light to the world + bring joy wherever you go, thank you for being mine. for making me a mama a second time + to a daughter! i'll love you forever, i can't believe you are 3 months old already. stop it. 
love, mama

...and now a handful of little facts about you at 3 months so i never forget.

you are about to roll girlfriend, back to front. i can't leave you anywhere off of the ground, in fear you'll pull out that party trick the minute i look away. so hooray for you! you work so hard + i can feel it coming any day now.
you weighed 12lbs at your last appt, get it
you've found your thumb + it's true love so far.
you're getting scootchy. you are never where i laid you last on your play mat.
you're a fantastic sleeper. thank you.
you love the bath, always have.
you are a chaaaatttyyy girl, got that from your handsome daddy :)
you love dance parties with abel + this week we heard our first laugh from you. the fact that it was for him made it even sweeter.
