Rob insisted I start Walker Wednesdays and bring back Jace Face Fridays. Now that I’m trying to blog more I just might! Or at least try ;) so, here’s my little Walker. On Wednesdays he’s only a half day at his daycare so he and I are usually work buddies in the afternoon. Last Wednesday he decided to not nap at all so he just played with toys nonstop and pulled at my legs for the afternoon. And always with a smile, coaxing me to just play hooky. But seriously, how can I resist that face?
Our Great Grandma Margie found these Baby B’Gosh osh gosh bgosh denim overalls at an antique store in Soquel before Jace was born and I’ve held on to them ever since. Jace only wore them a couple times, like the time Heather sent us a few blanket back-ups! And now 10-month old Walker fits into them and he’s stealing our hearts. So happy and smiley he is, and such a goof. We are so enjoying this stage all over again, you’d never think he was breaking 3 new teeth. He looks a little like a hill billy with his random gaping teethies and now these overalls, but we love it. Even when he spoils a perfectly good photo shoot with a monstrous poop >D
Oh, Walker. What a happy baby you are. How did we get so lucky? I was so worried my second born would be collicky or fussy, compared to our angel first born (Jace), but he has proven to be quite the opposite. Aside from still getting up once a night, he is so happy, and always smiling. Even when he wakes up in the middle of night he’s smiling at you. He smiles way more than Jace did. It’s so cool to see how different your children are, and I’ve seen it so much with Walker. He’s slightly more quiet than Jace was, more observant. Unless it’s the day he’s had shots at the doctor, or a bad poopy in the diaper, you’ll find him smiling, staring into your eyes, and touching your face. And boy does he laugh!! Huge, baby belly laughs! And always at Jace! And I just know he’s going to be walking before one. This boy is quiet, but active. He’ll be across the room before you can even glance! Walker, thanks for being so happy. I think it might be because I let you sleep in my bed though! hehe Happy 6 months my not so little Walkman! Stop outgrowing everything you wear you big boy! We love you so much it hurts. And we love how your sweetness is contagious.
My Walker baby is 2 months already! And Oh my god! I love him so much! He’s smiling like crazy and babbling all the time. He’s staying more awake during the day and sleeping more at night, at least for a longer stretch in the beginning. He’s got a little cradle cap that we’re trying to doctor up and take care. Other than that, he’s 16.5lbs of loooooove. He loves to sleep and be rocked on his side, and he loves our bed (my fault!). He’s a master at breastfeeding and has the cutest toes. And bless his little heart, he sure does tolerate Jace’s constant love and attention and poking and hugging and holding and petting >DD I think they’ll be close brothers, once Walker knows who Jace is, hahaha. I just can’t get enough of Walker and stare at him all day long, even when he’s sleeping. His little rolls and triple chins are amazing. They also require a lot of cleaning! Also, don’t ever put coconut oil on a baby to help with dry skin. The next day it will smell like BARF. His fussiness is evening out and I’m far more in tune with his needs and how to entertain and soothe him. Now Rob just needs to get more practice ;)
