|I'm in love with this baby :-*|
I am SO thankful that the weather is finally warming up (although, I really can't complain - it's still snowing in our hometown Juneau, Ak!!) I think when you have young children your day can be transformed when it's nice out and they can get some good outside time. Parks, a walk, playing at the beach or just hanging out in the back yard can be the cure for a cranky toddler (which we have a lot these days) We also feel so grateful to live in a place where family can visit frequently, this month we've spent a lot of time with Grammy Sharon and Uncle Corey who came up for a weekend. We also drove up to Vancouver for my cousin Jessica's baby shower, where we met up with her family.
I can't believe that Alden is already 4 months old! It really has gone so much faster the second time around. I learn more about his little personality and about myself as a parent every day. He is smiling and laughing, rolling over from his back to front, grabbing at toys and hair (ouch!), and loves watching his big brother's antics all day long. Keelan talks pretty much non-stop from dawn till dusk, is loving is outside time and much more engaged when interacting with is little buddies at playgroups. He's understanding the concept of 'sharing' and will say "my turn!" when another child tries to take a toy from him (or visa versa!!). He is now climbing out of his crib, which means toddler bed - here we come!
I'm getting more comfortable in my new role a little more every day, and reminding myself to pause and enjoy these fleeting baby moments ;-)
