Sarah at Nurse Loves Farmer got me with "share pictures of your baby". Well, don't twist my arm.
While it is hard to get Isaiah to actually pose for pictures, I know the little tricks to make him flash those giant smiles. This was fun though, because there is more (not much, but some) to life than that grin.
As we all know, I'm not a photographer. I don't even aspire to be.
Isaiah absolutely loves to be outside. We take our blanket out to the front yard so he can watch cars and the most exciting, airplanes. Sitting up is something he has really mastered this month, and being able to look at him without holding him is something really exciting. Of course, you know I love holding him, but it's so fun to really see him.
And when there are no planes or cars, he plays with toys. I seriously could stare at him all day.
His concentration is fierce, and the first time he was able to pick one of these puffs up was a huge accomplishment for me. He didn't notice of course, but I was so excited for him.
Lap naps are a thing of the past, unless you're teething. That open eye freaks me out, but he is just so sweet.
I looked into the living room and saw him sitting there, and suddenly I got a glimpse into my living room in five years and knew exactly how he would look sitting here then. The toys would be long replaced by more age appropriate toys, but he'll still be my baby. Just bigger.
Thanks to our dog, Isaiah's bath mat was ruined. Instead of buying a new one, we switched to big boy sitting baths. I still do them in the sink because it doesn't hurt my back and it's big enough to keep on doing it. He looked so sweet when I put him in his bubble bath for the first time.
He loves outdoors, and loves to look out windows. I love this about him, but I don't know what we'll do this winter.
And that's it. I love taking a moment to recognize the small (and monumental at the same time) things in our lives. Since Isaiah was born we've been in fast forward, so I'm glad to slow down and note the little things he is doing.
