Porter: Your Fourth Week

Look at you, so handsome. I can't get over your perfect little face. Your perfect little smile. I know it's probably just gas, but oh my gosh... I think you may have the hint of a dimple on the right side. Which is the same side as me... one dimple, on the right. I'm crossing my fingers! That would be a cool thing to share with you.

You still love all the same things as last week, but more and more, it's becoming apparent how much you love cuddles. I don't know, actually, if it's that you love cuddles - or if it's just that you HATE the Pack-N-Play. You could be sound asleep in my arms, and the minute I put you down to sleep in your Pack-N-Play, you're awake in 10 minutes. It's frustrating, but it's so hard to be upset when it's just apparent that you love being in our arms. How could I ever be frustrated about that?

The vibrating chair we have saves us on those nights where you won't let us do anything but hold you and cuddle you. You love the vibration. You also still love, love, love getting your diaper changed. You're obsessed with being clean! I'm hoping that means that potty training will be a breeze... we shall see! :)

Right now, I'm trying to live in the moment. Everyone always says that the time goes by so quickly, and I can see that now. I'm trying to enjoy every season, without getting too excited for the next. We only get one set of firsts with you... and that's why I've promised to maintain this blog. I don't want to let a moment pass by without getting the proper acknowledgement that it deserves :)

You're graduating, slowly, into 0-3 month clothing - this was a gift from the Ramsdells - and it almost fits!

Just finished feeding you at Thursday night rehearsal... we've tagged along with your dad the last couple of weeks, just so we can spend some time together, out of the house, and hopefully keep you up for a bit. Yeah... no such luck. The music is your favorite, you drift off to sleep within minutes. I'm pretty sure that all our friends think that you don't have eyeballs - they never see you awake!

Serious face, always.

Look at that belly! Nice and full :) You are a champion eater!

Asleep in your carseat. Probably from some random trip to the church or something.

Smiles! So dreamy, you are.

Looking at the lights and the TV. You're so strong and alert... it amazes us every single day!

Those hands.

  1. I can never comment because google reader app on my phone doesn't have a way to comment.

    I just love seeing your updates on him. He is such a cutie! It's that brand new baby phase and being that I'm due in 6 weeks with our little girl it makes me so excited.

    I can just say that there is NOTHING like a mama and her relationship with her first born boy. I wish I could rewind to almost 2 years ago and snuggle my little guy up all over again.

    Seems like you're soaking it up, keep at it goes fast and remember you can never take too many photos or videos. All my videos are of him when he interacted more and I look back wishing I had videos of him just laying around staring at everything. You honestly start to forget how teeny they were.
