I don't know about you, but it seems like a week ago that I was holding my 3 week old Forest boy in my arms. He is over 4 MONTHS old! That's just a hop, skip and a jump away from 6 months! Geez louise.
I have to agree with all the moms who told me that 3, 4 months was their favorite age. Of course you love it all. But, my goodness when my little man started really interacting with me, giving me those flirty smiles and the "i love my mommy" looks...it was over. I feel my heart get so warm, like it's going to explode with more love than I can take when we lock into each other's eyes. My mom said it right, it's a love affair.
I have felt those mommy moments of wonder and accomplishment when I all of a sudden realize that I know exactly what "this" cry or "that" cry means.
He was sleeping really good for a while, then not good at all. It's up and down. Those darn little teeth that are trying to make their way to the surface are giving him a hard time. :( Babies really have it tough dude. The most trying part for me is not being able to explain what is going on to him. He hasn't really been fussy at all, the little trooper. But, I can tell he's uncomfortable.
As much as he's my love cuddle bug, he's also a baby that gets frustrated because he can't stand up by himself and walk around like us. You can see it in his little blue eyes. He's the same height as his 6 and 7 month old friends and he eats about 8 oz of milk every 1 & 1/2 hours. He's a guzzler.
I adore him. Sam calls him his little buddy and I call him my sweet bug....or stink bug depending on what part of our daily routine we find ourselves in. *wink* haha
He LOVES tummy time now! Yay! He didn't for a long time. He'd rather stand than lay on his tummy. Now he loves it and thinks he's pretty cool being able to do it so well. My confident little squirt.
One of the things that little Forest boy has discovered he loves is the computer. He sat here for over 10 minutes watching whatever I had going from Netflix on HIS BELLY. Big accomplishment for someone who would just roll over or fuss to stand up whenever put on his tummy. I now put on baby Einstein for several minutes a day while he lays there so he can strengthen his wee little muscles.
When I posted the above pic of Káel - Miss James, my fellow bloggin' momma friend fromBleubird Vintage, sent this pic over my way right afterwards. It must be the baby trend right now amongst themselves. Our little cuties. I laughed so hard when I saw this.
Hope you found some smiles here today!
