A day in the life with a 16 month old

Dear sisters,

This week has felt a bit idyllic. Calvin has settled into sleeping past 6am most mornings (praise the lord). He still rouses a few times in the night, but getting past the 5am or 5:30am wake ups has been nice. Something that seems to have helped was transitioning him to one nap a day. It feels like he’s sunnier and sillier every day and while he definitely gets stridently annoyed about things, time with him is so very wonderful. His ability to play by himself is increasing from 30 seconds to maybe a few minutes! I’ll take it!! This past Monday (which is my day with NO WORK), we had such a wonderful time together that I decided to document it for the blog.

Calvin woke up at 6:15am! Woot!! We had to drop off one of the cars for an oil change, so Dad stayed home a bit later in the morning (he usually leaves at 7am). After dropping off the car Calvin and I played at home.

7:45am Flannel came out to combat the rare early morning chilliness.

A Day in the Life of a Five Month Old

Dear sisters,

Calvin is 5 months old now! How crazy. The first three months seemed to fly by and now that he’s doing things like sitting up and rolling over and standing and smiling all the time time seems to be slowing down. Kevin and I can’t get enough of him at this stage. He seems to be happier and happier every day. While there’s nothing like spending time with a baby, since you all live so far away, I thought I’d give you all a taste of life with my wonderful 5 month old.

MY LIFE IS AWESOME!
MY LIFE IS AWESOME!
