Our little Crew man.






If you haven't been around a baby in awhile- or ever- you have no idea how fast they change and grow. Seriously! I chose some pictures to share with you of Crew the past couple of days. His world is getting bigger now that he's discovered his hands...which then go right into his mouth...and he's holding his head up much better so he can look around and take in everything. The kids tell him over and over, "Awwww, you're so cute!", and I think his big eyes and grin are going to get him out of trouble with his siblings more often than not too.
He's now 3 1/2 months old and he already has "opinions" on things. He doesn't really like his hat (even though I do...thanks Marc and Keri!) and he hates wet pants. He's not so sure about tummy-time, but he loves attention, being held, and he is happiest when he first wakes up in the morning. Which makes it all the harder for the rest of us to want to get up and going. We just want to gush over how cute he is and he just eats it up!
So, here's my cute story of the day...
Ava was playing in the living room and I was holding Crew and had just wrapped a blanket around him. He was looking all cozy and snuggly. Ava came over to me and asked to hold him. As I handed him to her (I hold him while she puts her hands around him and squeezes...) she said to me, "He looks like baby God".
I thought it was the sweetest thing. She was referencing baby Jesus wrapped in swaddling clothes as we've just come off of Christmas and the manger scene. I just thought it was funny how she used the term, 'baby God'. =)
There's just something so wonderful about seeing the world through the eyes of babies/children, isn't there?!

Oh outta the mouths of babes. Amazing how they see things so young isn't it.
I watch my grand daughter 5 days a week she is just shy of 23 months and they grow so quickly. Its amazing. I find myself wanting her to stop for a few day so I can soak in the sweetness of this age for a bit.
He is beautiful those eyes would do it for me.
And Ava how sweet is she!

Have a great day. Cool and damp one down here in Metro Detroit area.
