6/52

6/52 — As I was looking at this photograph, it dawned on me that Roman is very predictable, and for that I am deeply grateful. When he is fussy, like he was in this shot, there are three possible reasons — either he is hungry, tired, or bored. I can “fix it” and I am grateful that I can so easily fix it when my baby isn’t happy. I can give him food, lots of food. I can nurse him and give him milk. I can put him down for a nap. I can play with him and give him a toy. And soon he will be smiling once again.

I know that this will not always be the case. I know that one day, my boy will not be so predictable. There will come a time when I will have no idea why he is sad or angry. There will come a time, when there is nothing that I can do to fix it. It pains me to think about those days, but all I can do is enjoy these days now, while we have them. And so I love my little, predictable baby. I love his smiles and I love his fussiness. I love his screams, his cries, his giggles, and his belly laughs, too. xo

    I think you’ll be amazed at how much you will continue to ‘just know’ in your heart about your beautiful boy. I love having that sixth sense about my boys. I’m just hoping it continues into the teenage years πŸ˜‰ x

    Those eyes….so beautiful. And being a mother, just aren’t any words for all of those feelings am I right? Some times it takes my breath away! Little Roman is just so handsome, I can’t wait to see more of his photos throughout the year! xoxo
