Has it seriously been a month since I’ve last updated?
That’s sad, really.
I guess there’s not much new going on, though. Honestly, it’s more of the same. I love my baby boy, I hate having to be at work, it sucks feeling like the new guy. Yadda yadda yadda.
There is some cool stuff though! Ronan cut his first two teeth already! I don’t know why he’s in such a hurry to grow up. I want him to be little forever. Or at least just a little longer.
I’ve been wanting to write a blog for a while now about differences in parenting. I KNOW that I don’t have to do what everyone else says. I KNOW I don’t have to care what my mom tells me to do, or what Brock’s mom thinks we should be doing. I know he’s MY son, and I get to do things the way that we decide is right for us. Still, it would be nice for, at least our families, to support us. It would be nice to not have to hear all the time that Ronan should be in his own bedroom by now, or why haven’t we started him on solid foods already. I guess those are really the only two things that I keep getting crap about, but I think about it so often. Sooner or later, I have to ask the question, “Why does it matter to you?” The next time my mom tells me to just start him on cereal already, or Jane says, “He has a bedroom for a reason! He’s never even seen it!” – Why does it matter to you? You don’t have to get up 4-6 times a night, and I don’t feel like walking up the stairs yet. AAP says no solids until 6 months, and I agree with the REASONS for that, not just blindly following what they say. No, I don’t do everything by the book, and I’m sure I make stupid choices sometimes, but they are my choices to make. Argh.
Anyways. Let me share some pictures now.
Ronan playing with his daddy.
World’s happiest baby, cutest smile
I love the faces he makes!
Ronan playing in the pool with daddy… daddy didn’t know he was dunking him.
Splashing in and out of the pool was fun!
This picture is just amazing to me. I luff it.
