Oh my dear Ocean baby,
At just three months old, the sling has been your safe haven. Ever since you were just a few days old, you've curled up happily inside your sling, just as you did in mommy's belly. Mommy keeps you safe and close so you can snooze off into baby sleepyland. You sleep and she plays with your big brothers, cooks dinner and even picks up toys with her toes. You've already slept close to mommy's heart on two airplanes, at the safari park (twice), on a mountain hike, on our walks on the beach, to the mailbox and to name a few.
Now that you've grown into a wide-eyed, smiley little 3 month old, you've delighted in your ability to take all these new sights in. No longer do you only hear the dull sounds surrounding Mommy's heartbeat and the murmur of her voice. Now you can hold your head up strong and use your beautiful baby blue eyes to see all the new colors and shapes in your environment. The first second you lock in on a familiar face, your eyes light up and you give a huge grin. You really are a joyful little baby and a true delight to get to know.
With my whole heart,
