Josie is already 4 and a half months old and just started rolling from her back to her belly. She’s very generous with her smiles, sleeps like a champ, and rarely cries. Last week, Gianna put her down in the corner of our playroom, where she gradually just fell asleep. Twenty minutes later, I couldn’t find her! After a brief moment of panic, I spotted her lying, sound asleep, behind a dump truck, in the corner of our playroom.
After two fussy babies (not naming names here, but we all know who they are), I’d forgotten how seamlessly a low maintenance baby transitions into the family. My time with her is really all joy. She refills my cup and then I can somehow deal with the intense drama of my two toddlers. I emerge from her smiles with a spring in my step, ready to clean up spilled juice, discipline a screaming child, or deal with a potty training accident. I’m enjoying it while it lasts because right now, I honestly can’t imagine my sweet Josie ever doing anything wrong…
And yes, I actually took these pictures myself, which is why the top one is a little blurry. But at least I captured the moment.
I hope your week is off to a blessed start!
