ezra august has such a clear personality, already. everyone says so. he really does seem old beyond his age, his wide eyes always taking in his surroundings. he loves to look at people. and after a moment of looking, he usually smiles.
he is super strong, holding his head up well. he does not like to be cradled like a baby. he is happy on his tummy. he is happy in the swing. he is happy on his play mat, looking at the toys hanging down. he is happy on our bed, looking at the mobile. he is happy on his changing table, looking out the window, into the light. generally, he is happy.
he is drooling already, and always sucking on his hands. he rarely spits up. he is a fast nurser. he likes to be naked. he is ambivalent about baths.
he loves his siblings. he watches them all the time. he laughs for them. isla kisses him non-stop. he seems okay with it. he tries to bite her nose.
i can't say i'm not still exhausted at the end of each day. i am. but ezra is such a delight. someday soon i'll be able to sleep through the night again. but i won't always be able to smell the sweet smell from my baby's soft head. (i think there is some red hair on there...)
