Little man playing with daddy’s tie after a day of honoring the life of James auntie who just passed. Thankful to have Luke and wonderful memories to brighten things up 🙂
I’m proud to say that smile up there was caused by me 😉
So today my baby boy slept in my arms like he did when he was a firstborn (all nestled in my arms, cradle style).. twice!! He hasn’t wanted to be in that position since his “sit-up” muscles have kicked in (although he’s not sitting up quite yet, almost!) and so I imagine it’s at least been a good two months. It was heaven. I treasure those little moments with him, because I’m acutely aware of the quickness of things.
It’s so strange and incredible all at once. These little beings grow before your eyes and while I long for the next stage, I am clinging to the last one at the same time. I understand wanting to bottle it all up and be able to pop it open when the time is right. But alas, it just doesn’t work that way!
But I’m in love with this stage. Luke’s belly laugh is really coming into itself and it’s delicious. His hair is growing longer and he’s beginning to burst out of some of his pants (so many highwaters at the moment.. sorry son!). He loves engaging and interacting with people, playing with his big bird stuffed animal and swatting and grabbing all his rattling and colorful toys. He tries to crawl and is starting to have a preference about everything.
What stage is your favorite with the little ones in your life? 🙂
+belly squeaking and laughing.. it’s the cutest
+babbling much more and distinct “la la” and sometimes a “ma” pops out!
+loves toys (specifically a musical monkey and big bird stuffed animal)
+much faster nurser than before (praise hands in the air!)
+loves walks by the beach and strolling in the stroller
+approx. one nap a day ends up in the stroller 🙂
+has discovered trees, thumb sucking, rolling, my phone
+runs warm like daddy, sweaty child
+loves playtime with daddy, i love watching these boys play together
+got his first virus & sore throat, woke up every hour whimpering the first night, so so sad 😦
+probably has entered four month sleep regression but his cuddles are worth it
we love you little boy!!
