Porter: Your Thirteenth Week

Wednesday, March 27, 2013


This week, you started lifting your head to look for me when you wake up (since you sleep on your tummy). It's so cute to see your little head poking over the top of the crib when I walk in to get you up in the morning. And usually, when you see me peering down at you, you break into a huge smile, which is so... I can't even think of a word to describe it. It brings me pure JOY.

You've started staring really intently at the iPad, iPhone or TV: like, actually paying attention to what you're seeing. Recognizing faces or sounds, maybe? I love it though, you're in a constant state of wonder, all the time.

We threw Auntie Jen's shower this past Friday, and you got to hang out with all the ladies. You loved it. Grandma C fed you a bottle and got you to sleep, and I think she was happy as can be :)

Some of the pics, below, are some of my favorite pictures ever. Your huge blue/grey eyes are on display in all of these photos, and I love it.

Taking you out and about is so much different nowadays... you no longer just sleep through outings, you're a lively and active part of the day. You sit at the table and watch the waitress drop off our waters, you stare at the pizza in the center of the table or laugh when I pick up a piece. Each and every day, you grow more and more into a functioning human being (haha). It's fun to be your hands and feet though; I'm gonna miss the days when you could only feed what I gave you, or go where I go because you're in my arms.


You're my little work buddy. You sit in your bouncer and watch TV, watch me... throwing cute little smiles my way all the time. It's pretty great. I'm so thankful that I get to work from home. It's fun hanging out with you, day in and day out.
