Bug was five months old on Saturday! (I'm trying a new nickname . . . as in Love Bug, Snuggle Bug, Stink Bug). We're having a great summer and getting to do lots of fun things together. Thanks to Tink, he has quite the busy schedule! He has his first photo session with his sister and cousins, had his first "boys only" play date with his cousin, started sitting in the stroller, and spent his first night without Mommy. He's still not quite adjusted to sleeping without being swaddled, but we're working on it. We tried cereal a few weeks ago and he was NOT a fan - this boy is just fine with nursing, thank you very much :) He weighs 16 lbs, so we're not too worried that he's going hungry. He smiles constantly and will charm anyone who looks his way. He loves to talk and coo, especially if you join in on the "conversation". He's also started to blow rasperries, which Tink thinks is hilarious. Here are just a few pics from the month.
In years past, we made plans to spend time with extended family for Father's Day. R has been traveling so much lately that we decided to spend the weekend at home as a family, and it was a much needed break. Tink and Bug wore special Dad shirts, and R got several things to help in his triathalon training. I really admire him for being motivated to work toward this goal, and can't wait to cheer him on when the day arrives! I am immeasurably blessed to have someone who is loving, hardworking, and fun as a husband and the father of my children. I knew he would be a great Dad, but it sends me straight to tears to watch him with our kids and see how much they love each other. I can't wait to see their relationship with him grow as they get older! I also never imagined that I could love him more than I did on our wedding day, and I truly do. Happy Fathers Day, babe, love you!
