we recently returned from our first trip with babe in tow. he was the life of the party, meeting his mama's friends and the extended family (including his great grandpa!). he smiled and cooed his way through most of it and dozed, fireside, through the rest.
motherhood is wonderful and i am loving watching this little one grow and learn. when he is awake, his big blue eyes seem to be taking everything in, and shines his little smiles for anyone lucky enough to be around him.
and for his proud mama, although there may be a slight lack of sleep, there is no shortage of love.
