I LIKE BEING HIS MOM BEST OF ALL



oh, this age! this age is perfection.

he can reach for me when he wants me. those amazingly chubby arms. when i hold him he holds me back. when he's feeling edgy, he'll curl his upper lip at me and gnaw on the air, squeezing his right eye shut like a grouchy old pirate.

in the mornings after we nurse, he pulls his head back and looks at me with this confident little grin. i can stroke his chin with my finger and he becomes very still, and then we'll discuss all of the things that lay ahead of us for the day.

he knows who he is, he knows who i am, and i can tell he thinks it's all totally rad.

this is the most fun i've ever had in my life.

  1. Love this post. My little guy is almost 7 months old and I feel the same way. I can't believe how fast time is going!

  5. So adorable! I just wrote about the exact same thing! All of the sudden I feel like I have a 9 m.o. little boy instead of an infant. Wah!

  6. i don't want him to get bigger either. if you want, i can call your house at all hours of the night to prevent him from sleeping. (time difference, you know...wouldn't be that hard for me.)

  7. Awww...so sweet, Nat.

    Huckster is adorable!

    Having become the aunt of a beautiful nephew (he was born January 25), it's astounding how quickly they grow up and morph into these little people...little baby people, but people nonetheless.

    And the cute things he does are neverending...it's like cuteness overload up in this joint!

    And by "this joint", I mean my sister- and brother-in-law's place, heh heh.

  9. same boat dude. same. stinking. boat. my little dude turned 7 months today and i do not like it. i would be perfectly happy if his teeth never came in and he never did roll over (that one time was just an accident anyway) and if he just continued to be the baldiest little baby dude there ever was.

  10. I love this! He is just so stinking cute! And that's rad that he knows who you are and he knows who he is - exciting times :)

  11. awww :) I know the feeling, but what's also strange is that they keep getting cuter and more fun as they grow! btw, is that a new iphone!?!?

  12. He is to die for! I feel the same way. My Little D is 5 months old and I can't stand the thought of him getting any older anytime soon. I just am head over heels in love

  13. Your baby is adorable. And you will love each stage of life more and more. Very sweet.

  14. It gets better, if you can believe it.

    My child just turned 3 today, and my joy has just grown with her. Sure, a tiny part of me is sad to see her growing so much and doing so much on her own, but that is usually overshadowed by love, pride, amazement and all those good mama feelings.

  15. My little dude turned 5 months yesterday. It's crazy how time flies! Except I'm different in that I'm desperate for my baby to sleep longer. Sleep deprivation is making me age about a decade a week. Love your blog!

  16. May I suggest "stop growing kisses"? At least, that is what my mother did and it worked! We are all short! In order for them to work though, you must announce aloud that the kiss is infact a "stop growing" one (as opposed to any other kind of kiss) so the child knows it- and just you watch, it'll work.

  17. i feel just the same. sweet post.

  18. Wow he IS getting bigger. So cute!

  19. But the most wonderful is coming!!! When he can speak and has audible tastes. He'll want to sports, or go camping, or like drawing the skies the limit...you will see all the untapped possibilities!

    I thought 10 months was the very best baby time, but hands down the 8-10 year child is sooo interesting and fun!
