I'm Keeping My Fingers Crossed

I have been known to say things to jinx myself. I am really trying to be careful about that but I have to mention Dillon's emerging personality. Knock on wood - he just might be a mellow, happy, content child. It's early, I know that, but I am keeping my fingers crossed that what we are seeing is a hint at what is to come from our new little guy. For instance, today, he ate from 10:30 - 11:30 (an hour, yes) then was wide eyed and bushy tailed for over an hour afterward. He sat in his bouncy seat as calm as can be. Then, he had a dirty diaper. After changing him he seemed so content laying on the floor that I left him there and, again, he was calm and content. Wow! Ayden refused to sit in a swing, a bouncy seat, or lay on the floor. I really truly pray that this is just a sign of what is to come. What a sweet baby.....


Here he is just hanging out with me. If I tickle his chin I get a hint of a smile, just not for the camera. I know he is too young for a real smile and it's just a reaction but he makes that 'smile' face quite a bit.
This one isn't from today but it is his bouncy seat that he might actually be fond of! Yay! See how red his face is? Poor guy. It's chapped cheeks and chin and scratches because we didn't get socks on his hands in time.


These are from today after I changed his diaper and he just chilled on the floor. Wow, is this my kid? LOL Just kidding, Brooklyn and Seth were very mellow babies too.

He trully is beautiful, Heather. I told everyone in Relief Society that you had him. I also told them he was born on your mom's birthday. I think that is so special. What a wonderful way to remember the day.

He is looking so cute! I'm sure he will be opposite Ayden, but you don't want to brag to loud. He might hear you.
