Tonight was just a joy. No sarcasm intended, I’m completely serious. It was just another evening at home with my husband and my baby and that is exactly why it was such a joy. During dinner I tried to keep Joshua satisfied in his high chair long enough so I could eat my meal with two hands by giving him some pears. This lasted all of 5 minutes and then he was begging to be in my arms. So in my lap he sat and cuddled into my chest while I ate one-handed. And I loved it. In his high chair he fussed and whinned and acted miserable. Immediately when surrounded by my arms he was happily babbling and smiling and content. This made my heart swell to twice its size.
After dinner Joshua and I took a bath together. He kicked and splashed and shouted with delight. He loves the water! As we were in the bath I had a flash back to 7 months ago when I was pregnant and in the same bathtub. I would watch my belly move in the water as I imagined what my baby boy was going to be like. Now here I am with a 6 month old in my lap kicking the water instead of the inside of my uterus. A little of a surreal and perfect moment.
After the bath Joshua was just full of it. He was kicking and laughing and screaming with enthusiasm and talking and trying really hard to crawl. He was giving it all he had and boy is he getting close to crawling. See for yourself.
And finally he just started to get really frustrated because he was trying so hard and couldn’t quite figure it out.
After snapping this priceless face I scooped him up and he was happy again. 🙂 I love how much he loves his Mama!!
Around 7:00, like clockwork, Joshy let out a cry that told me it was bedtime. I fixed him a bottle, rocked and fed him until he fell asleep and put him to bed.
As much as I love playing and cuddling with my baby I also enjoy the time of night Nathan and I have to ourselves after Joshua goes down for the night. We watched an ocean 3D movie on our new TV and it was really neat.
And that was our evening. Wonderful in it’s simplicity. I’m in love with my husband and I’m in love with my son and I am full of joy. ❤
