Chandler is almost 7 months old!
Chandler has been such a delight since day one. It’s crazy how fast the time has gone… I can’t believe that he is almost 7 months old. He is a happy little guy! I find myself just studying him and watching him trying to store these precious moments in my memory bank. I don’t know if it’s the fact that I am older now, or that I have such an amazing partner in life, but life just seems so much easier now… I find that I am okay with Chandler just doing things as he feels he’s ready… I think with Jacob I rushed him to just get to the next level so quick because life was just a lot different then. Now I find myself trying to back pedal with Jacob and with Ashley…. I want them to stay little for as long as possible. I probably need to loosen the reigns a little… It’s tough.
Chandler started sitting up on his 6 month birthday! He enjoys that he can do this and play with his toys. Although he still enjoys laying on his back just gazing up at whoever will pay him attention. He loves everybody and doesn’t know a stranger as of yet. Every where we go people stop and talk or just smile or stare at him. They tell us all the time how beautiful he is. It’s so sweet! Warms my heart because we think he’s pretty AMAZING too! He studies everything… He will sit and hold an object all the while his eyes are just trying to analyze it. I am sure that he get’s his need for wanting to know how things work from his dad! (attention to detail) He has no interest in being on his belly for anything other than sleeping! He is a belly sleeper (we are both belly sleepers) His skin is still so delectable! His eyes are showing promise of staying a shade of blue. He is in the 50th percentile in all areas except his height he is in about the 70th. Steadily growing. He loves to eat. He is eating, apple sauce, peaches, pears, carrots, zucchini, peas, avocados, squash, sweet potato’s, and the baby bites, and rice cakes… cereal. I am bad about staying on an eating schedule, but I am trying to be better at it. He is still nursing. I do enjoy this boding time with him. There are times when I yearn for a break, but then I say to myself that this to shall pass… It’s a very small amount of time in the grand scheme of things. He loves to chew on his feet. His face lights up when Dad walks in the room! Watching those 2 together really warms my heart. He recognizes Ashley and Jacob and they are starting to really warm up to him. I think because now he interacts a little more with them. That is a happy happy happy sight!
I am longing for a date night with my love! Which I know will happen soon enough… and When it does it will be oh so bitter sweet!! I can honestly say that I have found “my person” I look forward to waking up with him in the morning and going to bed with him at night. I love that I get to parent with him… I can’t think of a better person to choose to love everyday.
