Bodie's first month
February is already the shortest month, but our first month with Bodie really flew by! We all love Bodie to pieces. Every little movement he makes causes his sister to squeal with excitement, "maybe he's saying hi" or "I think he's giggling."
A few things you may not be able to tell from his photos: he has a very relaxed demeanor. He rarely seems upset by his sister's squeals or her close talking ways. He makes the sweetest cooing sounds and sometimes whimpers in his sleep (it's adorable).
Some of Bodie's firsts in the last month included: his first trip to Target as a family of four, his mom's first trip out of the house with two kids on her own, and his first restaurant outing which he slept through.
My favorite time of day is waking up in the morning. We don't have a set time or schedule yet, and I'm often groggy. Maggie usually gets up while I'm feeding Bodie (or shortly before) so she and her dad go downstairs while Bodie and I have the upstairs to ourselves. I love watching the sunlight stream into the bedroom while I'm feeding him and hearing bits of Maggie and her dad's conversations.
We have a few nicknames for our little boy:
Bodie bear, Bodie boy, sweet boy and manzie
One thing I want to remember from his first month is how not freaked out by doing stuff I was. I was reading through my first month with Maggie and remembering how anxious I'd be to leave the house with her. This time around, I have two little people to get out of the house, but it doesn't feel like as much of an undertaking.
