5 Month

Yeah, I am back up on the internet and my little man is now five months old.  I cannot believe how much he is growing at a whopping 18 pounds. There are times that I want my newborn baby back.

Nathaniel has his own little personality and I enjoy watching his personality develop.  Me on the other hand, feels way to old to be getting this little sleep.  But, I remember that this is for a relatively short period of time and that is what keeps me going.  I cherish all the time I am getting with my baby- especially while I am nursing him.

We also baptized Nathaniel this past weekend.  It was a special event for me since I had my god-sister, Cece, be Nathaniel's god-mother.   I feel truly blessed to be surrounded by such wonderful family and friends .

Sleep Deprivation

The thing about sleep deprivation and me is that I write these blog segments while trying to fall asleep and then in the morning I cannot seem to remember what I was going to blog about.  Instead I will share some pictures that capture my life.

This is me relaxing at the adult pool at the gym.  I was so tired that I checked Nathaniel in at the Kids Club and sunbathed/napped for an hour and half.  It was absolute heaven.  Now if only I can get cabana service and a soft fluffy pillow. 

We have the older boyz for the summer.  It is hard to tell who is walking whom.  Is Roxy running Joe?  Is Nathaniel walking me?  You be the judge.

What Would You Do?

Now that I am a stay at home mom, I have become that typical mother that watches Bravo TV, goes to the gym, attends baby time at the library, and seeks out play dates. Not exatly how I envisioned this mommy stuff but it is working for this chapter in my life. I enjoy wathing Nathaniel eat ceral for the first time, learn to roll, and interact with other babies.  Waking up to a smiling baby every moring is the icing on the cake. 

Here Nathaniel is like, “check out my guns”.

I love to read and I often read to Nathaniel.  At the library, they read to the babies, sing, and play.  It always surprises me how much the babies observe during this time.  Nate will want to stand when he sees the other babies stand and reach his arms out to other babies.

On our first library time, I noticed a mother going throught the toy bag.  Since it was my first time, I was not quite sure how the time would fold out.  Just as the librarian walked out of the room, the mother grabbed some toys and stuffed them in her purse.  Did I really just see a mother steal toys from the library?  

It was like an episode of What Would You Do? And that is just that, I did not know what to do.  I was new to the group and did not want to stir up trouble.  After a diaper change, Nathaniel’s and not mine, I asked my sister what I should do. We looked for the librarian, however she already left.

Still to this day I wish I had done something more.  Confront the lady?  Call her out on the spot?  Either way, my non action bothers me more than what my action should have been.
