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!
