charlie's 3 month portrait

little smiley charlie. this kid loves giving us big, big, smiles. the biggest are first thing in the morning or when mirka is around. charlie loves her. his eyes follow her around the room in total fascination. mirka loves him back, but i'm not 100% sure she knows he will become a little person & not just her little "charlie boy". she watches everything i do like a hawk & then projects it on to grover. if i put charlie in the baby bjorn carrier, then mirka zips up grover in her jumper.. so cute! and it goes on & on. it's just as fascinating for me to see mirka role model with grover, as it is for her to watch me with charlie in the first place. people ask me if he is a good sleeper and i think he is. he has been driving me a bit bonkers, wanting 2-3 hourly feeds during the day lately, but at least he normally sleeps from 9pm to 3am overnight. i couldn't tell you what happens between the 3am feed and when the husband wakes up around 7am though. i know there's normally another feed in there somewhere, but once charlie wakes up and i move him from his cradle to our bed, we fall asleep together until i wake up properly around 7am. the few hours of co-sleeping snuggles are really lovely, but i also find it exhausting. i think it's because i only sleep lightly with him next to me and i can't move without disturbing him. still, for now it allows me to not really have to wake up or get out of bed and that's a good thing.

p.s. thank you for all the lovely comments on my charlie teapot post. it means a lot to receive all your lovely comments and tam, i send you a big, big hug. xx

p.p.s. since the out-take from charlie's last portrait was such a hit, here is another one.. he loves it when i squish his little face up and make funny kissing noises & he rewards me with lovely, bubbly, baby noises.

  8. How gorgeous! I love the last photo...such a happy baby. Thanks for your last comment on my blog...just wondering - I read in an interiors book that the Eames rocker may not suit breastfeeding or rocking a baby to sleep. What are your thoughts? Has it worked for you?
