So, I’ve said it before, but I’ll say it again. I really love my babies post 6 months. Next time, I might just opt to skip the first 6 months and move right into the next stage. (I kid, I kid)…. But for real I just love right now. I can honestly say that personally I love babies 6-14 months old. They don’t say no, throw tantrums, or have man sized poop, those 3 reasons are enough for me.
But like I said, I just really love this stage right now. We put B on a steroid cream for the itching and man alive, it has made a world of difference. I’ve only put it on 3 times this month, once each week and it does wonders to keep the itching away. It’s not foolproof (see socks below), but if he’s clothed he gets to be gloveless most of the time! Which allows Beckham to just really discover the world around him so much more. He’s finally clapping, and rolling every which way trying to get around the room, not to mention sleeping through the night. It’s been fantastic. On the downside he has been perpetually sick for the last month, I really feel like it’s since I stopped nursing. This makes me so sad, because this was not the path I anticipated for him, but we just do the best with what we’re dealt.
Beckham has such an easy going personality. Ready to give out smiles galore to anyone who wants. Rarely fussy and just so content to hang out while his brother plays and leads the way. He does still love to be held and close, but I wouldn’t even really call him needy, because he’s pretty happy even when he’s not getting his way. I love the photo above because when Beckham smiles big he squints his eyes. This picture is so true to that. His face lights up, dimple pops out, and I melt!
Love you Baby B!
Standing like a big boy now!
