Six Months with Theo

Theo Six Months-2

I’ve been pretty quiet here lately, because the last month or so we’ve had a full house. Our friend, Michele, visited us from Denver. My Dad came to visit from Mississippi. Elie’s cousins visited from Toronto. My aunt and uncle drove up from Oregon. Our friend, Daisy, and two of her friends visited us from Austin. And we’ve made many trips to Vancouver to visit family there, and they’ve done sleepovers here. It’s been a full and happy summer.

Five months. This is it. I remember a friend saying that this is the stage you dream about when you dream about having a baby. The squishy cheeks, the big toothless grins and giggles, the cuddles that envelope you with their trust and sweetness. We’re in it, deep, deep in love with this little one.

I’m so glad I’m writing down the details of these first months of Theo’s life, so I will always remember what we did and how I felt, because the first few weeks after his birth already feel like a hazy dream of nursing and pumping and snuggles and wonder. It’s amazing how quickly Theo has transitioned from a sleepy newborn to a baby with a distinct personality and little boy traits. And how he has transformed our lives.

The Nursery

I can’t believe little Theo is already almost eight weeks old! Everyone says time goes by so quickly, and they are right. I thought it was time to share all of the details of Theo’s nursery. I love the serenity of this room. Although Theo does not yet sleep here, he started taking naps in his crib over the past few weeks. And we sit in here every day and rock and sing and are beginning to read some of the books together. It feels like a beautiful, peaceful retreat for our sweet baby boy.

Breastfeeding is Not Always Easy

Breastfeeding Isn't Easy | www.Simmstown.com | Lisa Samuel

Breastfeeding should be intuitive, right? It’s the way all mammals feed their little ones. And for some people, it is. Like my Granny told me before Theo was born, “You just put that baby up there, and he’ll be fine.” Or like my doula told me about when she had her first child, “I didn’t know what I was doing, but luckily my baby knew just what to do.” But, breastfeeding is not always easy.
