{3 months}

Cash Austin you are the highlight of my life.  It has only been three months since I had you but it's funny, i can't even remember what my life was like without you! You occupy all of me and daddy's time, and we love it! You are such a good baby! I thank my lucky stars for you everyday!

You sleep through the night, Hallelujah! We are so grateful for that! Daddy usually rocks you to sleep after he gives you a bottle in the lazy boy.  He thinks the lazy boy has special powers that make you sleep because whenever we try and rock you to sleep anywhere else, you wake up shortly after.  But with the lazy boy you sleep like a big boy through the night! You usually fall asleep about 11:30-12, and sleep until 7:30-8ish.  Sometimes when you sleep you move your lips like you are eating, it makes me and daddy laugh! We think you must be dreaming of eating....because not only do you sleep like a big boy, you also eat like a big boy!

You usually eat between 5-7 oz. at a time! If we ever don't feed you enough, you let us know! You get very upset if we pull your bottle away early....and usually you let out a whimper.  You will get rice cereal next month.  We think you probably weight 16-17 lbs already.  We have your next check up in February.  You will go to a different doctor because we are moving to Texas.  

Lately you love to put your hands in your mouth, usually we keep mitty's on your hands because sometimes when you get mad you scratch up your face! Your mitty's are usually soaking wet when we take them off of you because you have been gnawing on them all day long.  Mommy thinks your mitty's are cute, plus they keep your fingers warm in the cold!  You have been discovering your arms as well. You like to fling them around and sometimes you reach for your toys in front of you.

You also LOVE to blow bubbles at mommy and daddy.  You are the best 3 month old baby bubble blower i know.  You think it's funny when we make silly sounds with our mouth like make a "bbbbbrrrrrrrr.." Usually you try and do it back to us and you've gotten really good at trying to "talk" back to us.  Sometimes you let out a "yelp" or "agee" ir "hieee" sounds.  we love that.  You are also very generous with your smile all the time! You open your mouth really big and smile with your whole face, even your eye's smile! Sometimes i catch daddy and you talking and smiling two are best buds!

You celebrated your first Christmas last week. you were such a good boy for everyone.  you got lots of presents and where the center of attention most of the weekend! Grandpa Ron got you some john Deere stuff, he must think you will be a little farmer! :) Whatever you decide to be i know you will be great at it! I like to dream of what you will become.  You also got your first barn.  Great Grandma Pearl really spoiled you and got you lots of fun toys for when you are older! Christmas was special because you were a part of our lives this year.  I can't wait when you are older to teach you the story of Jesus and how special Christmas is! I also want to teach you to be generous, I want you to know the real reason for Christmas and giving back to other less fortunate.  I can't wait to make our first gingerbread house and teach you how to decorate Christmas cookies. I finished your special stocking only days before Christmas, it took mommy a LOT of time, but it was worth it!  My mommy made me a special stocking when i was little and now you too, have your very own special stocking.  I hope you keep it with you for a very long time.  Even grandma Rhonda has her special stocking from when she was a little girl. You make the holidays extra special.

We've come up with lots of nicknames for you.  Some of them are : Cashew, Casher, Cashman, Cashbug, Cashie, CasherPasherMisterMasher, Bubbie (mommy's fav!).  We thought naming you something simple like Cash, we couldn't come up with any nicknames, but boy, were we wrong!

You have officially out-grown alot of your "baby" clothes.  It makes mommy sad to put away some of the first outfits we put you in, but I know its a good thing because that means you are healthy and growing! We dress you it 3-6 month clothes. You finally got to wear your wranglers that uncle cole gave you at mommy's baby shower! They looked so cute on you!

We love you to pieces Cash, you have made our brightened our lives more than you will ever know.  We will stick together as a family down in Texas and someday you will get tell all your friends that you lived in big Texas (how cool!?) We make all of our decisions thinking about what is best for you.  We always put you before everything else.  We will have to skype and send lots of pictures to everyone back in Nebraska because everyone will miss you like crazy! Mommy is very excited about getting to spend every day with you! We will have lots of fun and go on lots of Texas adventures.  We can't imagine our lives without you, Cash Austin, you are a blessing to us and fill our hearts with overflowing joy!

If 2011 is anything like 2010 we are in for a fun year!!

Love you forever and ever,
