Little Markers

The baby chunk is 3 months old today! 

Apparently we've confiscated his hands... Much to his shock and alarm.. Especially since he just worked-out they are attached to his arms and he can make them dance and sway so fancifully.

His hand waving - and other similar ground-breaking discoveries - help mark his movement through the months and we are having a grand ole time watching and cheering him on. 

(I feel bad for the day when he discovers smiling and blowing bubbles isn't a momentous achievement.)  
It's been an interesting new season for me, transitioning out of the usual pattern of work, social plans, pottering around the house and trying new creative endeavors. How a small, immobile person can take-up so much time I do. not. know. 

But this infant stage is flying by - 3 months already! - and so I find I have to remind myself to relax into the mum thing, to not be anxious about what's not done, and soak up what is... A chubby-cheeked baby Theo!


(*they're not really-truly confiscated, he's just rocking his little Aussie sleeping bag and giving me a good laugh with his no-hands dance each bedtime. "Lano & Woodley" anyone?!)

Turning a Frown Upside Down

(I don't suppose it's a frown in the former picture, so much as a look of disillusioned melancholy.)

Theo is sending more sunshine our way every day! This of course means we're sounding more unhinged every day, in an attempt to get a reaction... Thank goodness it's just the 3 of us at home & we can switch-on our reserved parental mode for public outings.

Come smiles or banshee screams, he is our favorite little fellow.

Happy Mothers Day, one & all.
