David in the Crib
All-American Girl Makeup Look with Mary Kay
David took a nap of champions the other day (2.5 hours!) and after he woke up I went in with my camera in hopes to get a picture of him. I also brought him a single Teddy Graham because I’m a nice mom like that.
I have to make a real effort to take shots of the boys with my DSLR, and toting it around the house with me, like I do my phone, is the easiest way for me to remember to take real photos of them.
As it turns out, David was in the mood for a bit of a photo shoot. I happily obliged and shot my little heart out as he played in his crib.
The orange bubble container is more fascinating than the bubbles themselves. Typical toddler move.
David will be 16 months old in a few weeks. And there is nothing that makes me realize how quickly he’s growing up than having a newborn around.
I put away all of Luke’s newborn clothes since they are already too small (I know. Ridiculous.) and as I fished through the bin of 3 month clothes I was reminded of my favorite outfits to put David in back when he was that little.
There were these grey pants with blue thread exposed along the seams that I loved putting on David. And I held them up and just stopped for a second and thanked the Lord for what a blessing these boys are to me.
I mentioned on Instagram that David has been showing some signs of jealousy now that Luke is here which has been challenging to deal with. It’s heartbreaking because I used to be able to meet all his immediate needs, but now I have Luke to consider and sometimes Luke has to be the priority over David (for example, if Luke has to eat, etc.).
But despite dealing with some challenging times with David, he’s also been extremely sweet and fun. I love seeing more and more of his personality come out with age. He loves to play peek-a-boo around the house, and loves to be chased. His giggle is infectious, and he smiles with his entire face!
And when Justin comes home? Forget it. You’ve never seen a happier kid.
My heart is so full right now with both of these boys. As well as my laundry basket(S), my diaper pails, and my hands. ::wink::
