Porter is 5 months old as of June 10 so I thought it would be nice for everyone to see even MORE pictures of my baby. I can’t believe how fast time has flown by. Time moved pretty quickly for me before I had a child, but now it seems to move at lightening speed. My boy is a floppy dough baby no more! He’s rolling, moving and trying to sit up on his own already. Luckily, he gets more fun everyday and I get to discover the world again through him.
I feel really lucky to be his mom and couldn’t have asked for a better baby. Being a mom can be really hard, and mostly tiring these days. But I have to say that when I wake up next to my baby and he smiles at me, or we go on a laughing tangent, or he lights up when I walk into the room there is no better feeling in the world. I am savoring being the person he turns to for comfort and tenderness. There was no doubt that being a mom would be rewarding, but I wasn’t prepared for how wonderful it would make me feel. I’m gushing, I know, so on with the pictures!
One week. I like this picture because Luke looks just how we felt after the first week with our baby.
One month. Luke was able to finally get his smiles on camera.
2nd month. Characterized by scratches from his razor sharp nails and hickeys on anything he could get his mouth on.
3rd month. This is when he started to get really fun as he became aware of his surroundings and finally recognized us as his parents.
4th month. Tummy time finally became fun. He is staring at the cat, just out of frame. He is constantly amused by our 3 kitties.
5th month. He is seriously fun now. He laughs with his whole body, lights up when Luke or I come into a room and talks with reckless abandon (this is my karma coming back at me). I don’t know that life gets much better than this!
