Have you been having a lovely February so far? I have some really neato news! The blog has reached a whopping 400 followers! Oh my goodness. Wow. I'm excited to meet you guys as you peek in and enjoy the tid bits and musings here. It makes me smile to hear about you and your families. So, please drop me a line or scribble a comment. Hey, hey and welcome lovelies!
My little handsome is 5 months old already. Is that even possible? I find my days are more colorful and humorous than they were in the early days of Forest's babiness. His smiles, expressions that I interpret as a number of thoughts, make me laugh all throughout the day. One of my friends told me that as they grow some of the things that were hard early on will get easier and some of the things that were easy will get more difficult. um...WORD. haha. Where I used to just lay him down and he'd be content for long periods of time...now he constantly wants to move, explore and be a boy. Very loudly and vocally letting me know when he needs more distractions. Which, I love by the way. At times, when I just want to finish those last few dishes in the sink, it might cause me to sigh and blow a frustrated puff of air to tussle my bangs. It can be hard but when he busts out that smirk... it's over. I can't be upset. That is one of the easier things to me - He interacts with us SO much now. It makes the daily duties and caring so much more rewarding on the tired soul. He loves being on his belly and is starting to scoot. Most of the time he looks like he is sky diving. haha.
Little boy loves the computer and ceiling fans. He talks all time, telling me all his thoughts. *wink* His favorite thing to do is pull his blanket over his head then freak out because he doesn't always know how to pull it down. Then, he smiles and does it over and over again. He constantly is kicking his LEFT leg and is like a fish in the bathtub. He also loves sitting in his daddy's lap while he plays the piano. It's quite amazing and an awe filled moment when I walk in on those daddy/son times. Káel is genuinely fascinated and observant of Sam's fingers, realizing they are making the sounds. I love it. I love my handsomes.
I took these pics a couple days ago. Enjoy.
