we marvel at him. we wonder how it could be that he’s ours. that he’s just so adorable. so chill. so….happy.
yesterday we took him for a somewhat routine doctor’s visit where we couldn’t believe how tolerant he was of all the procedures and handling including vaccinations, new oral medication, having his ear wax scrapped out and then flushed out (apparently he produces a ton of ear wax!), and a long line at the pharmacy. he breezed through the entire three hour ordeal even though he missed his morning nap. chill, chill, chill – just as the above photos suggests (hilarious).
i’m learning what mama pride feels like. i just feel so proud, so in love, so honored that he’s ours. i’m starting to take his cue and chill out a bit more, too. it’s getting easier as his temperament and personality bloom and i can feel my confidence growing with each new day with him. i feel extremely fortunate that i’ve been able to spend every single day with him, all day long, these last 4.5 months. this has been huge in my healing and recovery and our bonding. but man, it’s time for some help and i’m ready to let go a bit and have our awesome part-time nanny step in. one of my friends really pushed me to take this next step – to assemble our team and i’m so glad i did. it’s time.
i made a simple and huge canvas for his room….photos of nursery coming soon!
