CMU retaining wall


Ok guys here is my project. I have a wall I want to build. 8x8x16 cmu block. going to veneered on the face. it will hold soil about 3' high at the highest point then taper down.
I am going to dig to frost line then pour 12 inch footer. Set block. fill cores. rebar in footer thru block. drain stone behind and drain pipe. Am I miising anything ?


Should I put batter on the block or lay the block plumb ?
