Baby Babble

Is it weird that I look forward to conversations with my four month old? It’s seriously one of the highlights of my day, his very favorite way to play together is to sit where he can see me and tell me stories.

Right after he wakes up, he tells me about his dreams. Sometimes he’s giggly about them, and sometimes he’s downright indignant. My favorite are the sad stories because he tells them so pitifully, like this:

And that makes me laugh, which makes him laugh!

When he isn’t talking to me, he talks to his toys. His favorite is his Michael doll from his Peter Pan collection – they totally have this baby with a bear bonding thing going on! So for his first “real” photo shoot, I just gave him toys to play with and talk to and snapped away! Here are some of my favorites!

Love the drool here 🙂

Is anybody watching me? I think I’m gonna bite Tink, nobody will mind, right?

Did I say that? Nooo, I’m a good baby!

I Get By With A Little Help

I appreciate my friends every day, but sometimes they really knock it out of the park. Like yesterday, when my friends at work surprised me with the baby shower they had planned for the summer before PJ decided to be a spring baby!

It couldn’t have come on a better day as I was up to my ears in vendors who decided I needed some misery in my life. One double-billed me for a shipment that they lost a week ago and won’t replace until it’s been MIA for more than 10 business days – even though they admit they lost it on day 2. And another that apparently employs at least a dozen people who do nothing but come up with more hoops to try to make me jump through for the exalted privilege of paying them buckets of money every month.

So, a surprise baby shower in the middle of all of this was a really great change of pace!

And then today, I got to spend time catching up with my good friend Danielle, who happens to also be my next door neighbor. I’ve been missing our gym dates so it was great to get to chat over tea today – and she helped me do PJ’s first photos with my good camera! I can’t wait to do the editing on them 🙂

Here’s your sneak preview of our session:

That’s Peter Pan in the front there, PJ was chatting away to him!
