Well father time has left me blindsided once again because just like that another month gone and my little dude just continues to grow:
You still love your blankets, they are becoming a security thing and luckily they are breathable because you pull them right up to your face. This week you also started playing in your excersaucers and you really enjoy them. It is amazing how quickly you went from not being ready to being ready for them. I wish time would slow down a little because you change so much daily – I want to soak it all in.
What are you loving this month? Your hands, they are always in your mouth. You are also a rockstar at grabbing items and putting them in your mouth. This past month you GIGGLED! I almost died, it was so cute! You don’t do it often, you still enjoy your what I lovingly call “laugh scream” 😉 – The toys you are loving are the winkle matthaten toy, your baby Eisenstein piano and a few organic toys I picked up for you from a local green store: Green Home Experts [today is small business day, if you are going out stop by and give some love!].
You continue to teach me so much, you are simply so amazing, I know i keep saying it but you are. My favorite moments these days happen in the morning when you wake up and I cuddle with you – I never thought in a million years I could feel so strongly for anyone, but when I look at you I am overwhelmed with emotion and love. You will never understand the depth of my love for you, but I will continue to hug and kiss you daily and remind you.
I remember being pregnant and telling your daddy that we wouldn’t have time to watch tv, or cuddle – I felt sad at the thought I wouldn’t be able to spend so much time at the gym… I remember thinking they would all become sacrifices but now that you are here I don’t want to watch tv, and I definitely don’t just want to waste time at the gym I want to get in – sweat – and get out. I want to spend as much time with you as I possibly can and it does not at all feel like I’m sacrificing anything it is exactly where I want to be. I have never felt so complete and happy in my life. You make daddy, Oso and I so happy <3.
You are such a healthy little nugget and I thank God every day for that. You are also just so amazingly happy all.the.time. You have your exhausted red eyed angry moments (your eyes get red when your tired, a clear indicator that you need some sleep) but they are easily pacified by loving arms, your swing or momma’s horrible voice singing “twinkle twinkle little star” you LOVE this, and I have no idea why, because my ears want to bleed when I’m listening to myself sing it (there is no X-Factor in your momma’s future).
You LOVE music, absolutely love it, Pandora calms you when you do something you currently really dislike – nighttime car rides. *sigh* the hardest part of my days lately are the rides home from work with you. You really do not like that nighttime drive home, and it breaks my heart. But taking you upstairs and cuddling you makes me so happy, as soon as you see my face it is an instant pacifier ❤ You know the way to a girl’s heart.
I’m enjoying every.single.second with you. My awesome little.love.
