my sweet boy.

Thursday, February 16, 2012

i mean, if i could freeze time, i think i would.  this six month stage is sweet as can be.  this kid is such a joy to be around and i truly enjoy almost every minute of it.  when he goes to bed for the night, i crave his little body close to mine after a few hours apart.  sometimes, when i get in bed, he wakes up and i'm not too sorry about it because it gives me a chance to put him on my chest where he falls right back to sleep on me.  sometimes we stay that way for hours.  i breathe those moments in because i know he won't be doing it forever.  but, if i'm being honest, i wish he would.

i'm a sap.  you can stop gagging now.

  15. Connor is 20 months and I still rock him! Due to his size it is a little awkward.. but it happens! It is so cute now because as soon as I sit in the chair he now starts singing my nightly song to him.. so sweet.

  16. Precious. I love it when my 15-month old comes into our bed in the morning and nurses/sleeps with me for another hour or so. Such special times.

  22. If it makes you feel better, my son is nearly 15 months old and I say this every month. Every month, I say THIS is the best month! And then the next month rolls around... And what do you know? It's even better!!

  23. I cam back to look at these pictures again, because I had a dream about them last night. Parker was teaching Behr how to raise his leg up in the air like that, and then pulled a Maryanne and started talking about the long-term health benefits of flexibility.

    No joke.

  33. This is absolutely too cute! It really struck me because I literally have taken these EXACT pictures of my girl at six months...in a white onesie (and overalls)...sitting up and smiling...oohing and ahhing over the fact that she was six months and I loved it!

    It's so fun to connect with other people so far away (holler from California!).

    Here's the post I'm thinking about

  37. I haven't been to your blog for months and months (I know, shame on me) and didn't realise your baby had grown so much!! And isn't he the most handsome boy? Those eyes!

    ReplyDelete
  38. It's amazing how much you have seemed to love every minute of being a mother - from the pregnancy up to now. I totally admire you for that.

    You and Parker are the cutest together.

  39. Look at those eyes! Adroable :)

  42. You are not a sap.
    I have 4 and I feel that way about each one.
    My 4th baby just turned months and sometimes wakes up around 5 or 6 am to nurse.
    Afterwards, I put him on my chest to fall back asleep and I am dreading the day when he's too big for that.
    He alreayd kind of is, but I don't want to admit it.
    When I start to think about how much I'll miss it, I actually want to have a 5ht.
    Which is CRAZY!
    But babies are just that wonderful.
    Yours is a doll.
    Love from,
    Greta
