the happiest baby on the block.

And no, I'm not referring to the book. I'm talking about my little (almost 5 month old), Easton! So get prepared because this post is going to be a mushy gushy, brag on my baby kinda post. The kind that will make you want to puke. You're either going to love this post or hate it by the time you're done reading it (if you even do!). But I gotta write down my genuine feelings, and document this stage of life. This is after all, a baby book of sorts so I'm keepin' it real.

Do you follow my Instagram feed? (UN: mandychiappini). If you do, then you probably see lots of pictures of my kids. Okay, that's about 98% of my feed. But the majority of the photos you see of Easton, he's smiling like a fool. Sometimes when I see pictures of kids looking happy all of the time, I think to myself "yah right!" Cause for the most part, we like to just show photos of our kids looking cute and stuff. But the truth is, Easton really IS that happy all of the time. Of course he has his quirks but, my 4 month old is a total dream baby. I am not comparing him to anyone else, not even his older brother Bennett, because Bennett was actually a pretty happy baby as well, and if you look in my archives, you'll see posts just like this about him. :)

I guess I just need to put this all down on "paper" so that I can always look back and remember this phase of Easton's life. Because, it is a phase. I fully expect that he will have his share of tantrums and fussyness, but for now - I am just enjoying my little ray of sunshine.

He really does light up a room. He's so easy going and laid back, I really don't think he could be any better of a baby. He hardly cries or fusses. Only for the normal baby things, like if he's tired or hungry. But not even when he's hungry, he doesn't seem super obsessed with nursing or anything. I am just so blessed to be in his presence. That sounds so cheesy but it's true. (insert people rolling their eyes at me).

I mean... look at this face!! Aaaackk! I just love him!

He really is the cutest. Such a happy looking guy!

He really is a happy little boy! But you know - that comes right from mama & daddy being happy too - Kids pick up a lot even at that age. Happy parents = happy marriage = happy baby! Simple concept! My daughter always was smiling and everyone used to comment on how good of a baby & happy she was. As parents, we were too - it reflected directly on her attitude and personality! :)

I love seeing his smile on your feed! Almost the opposite of the pictures AP posts of her new babe! I'm sure he's a lovely content babe, but he always looks so serious and cute! Braden was always such a happy baby...I'm hoping this one will be too!

He really is a handsome little guy. Every time I see his little photo on IG I have to do the double tap heart like maneuver. Hehe! I used to work in the infant room right before I left my job to be a SAHM and little sweeties like this usually got spoiled rotten from me holding them and cuddling them all day. I bet it's hard to not want to pick him up and smooch all over him every time you see that smile. I still do it with Elijah and now at 3 he is already saying "stop mommy, too much kisses"!

Mindi @ Simply Stavish said...

Eeekkk!!! He is just too cute!! yes I totally agree with Skye. Happy babies are from happy parents. I'm a nurture over nature girl for sure! :)Your rocking it!

Courtney K said...

What a cutie. :) I love seeing his little pictures on my InstaGram feed. Noah was a really happy baby, despite some stomach issues. And for the most part, even for a toddler, he's a happy boy now. It's hard to get pictures of him cranky.

Jane said...

Brag away!! He is absolutely, adorably, delicious!!! So, so cute!!

HeatherLClark said...

he is such a doll!!! He looks so much like Bennett to me! Jasper was also a very good baby & I can only pray Sara Kate will be too!!!

Diane said...

I totally get it. I see your IG feed and his sweet little face always makes me smile. Enjoy it! I'm sure it is a phase but he'll always be cute - so keep on loading these pics. I love them!

Eli Pacheco said...

Know what I'd like to read? A blog, from him, written by you. Your take on what he sees in his world so far. I have a feeling he'd say a lot of the same things about you that you said about him in that fourth paragraph.

Oh my he is so so cute! Love a happy baby, that's how my son is and it makes me scared to have more because surely I won't get this lucky again!!
