When We Were Young | The Nineteenth Week

The Bubs has completely transformed this week. He now likes to sing and talk and is super chatty, especially after a snack. He also has started grasping for things, holding toys himself, and putting everything he can grab into his mouth (or at least trying to aim for his mouth). He's also so close to sitting up on his own. He can balance for a few seconds and then slowly falls over to one side. He's starting to use his hands to prop himself up while "stiitng". The pediatrician calls it "tripoding" which apparently is a developmental milestone, so, you know, yay. We were out of town for half of the week and The Bubs stayed with friends. I totally am using that as my excuse for not having a full week's worth of photos this week. But these ones are pretty cute so hopefully that makes up for it...

the boy with the chameleon eyes...

He is almost 5 months old now. My little boy.

He's two feet tall and 17 pounds heavy. He's too heavy to hold for very long with just one arm. His eyes refuse to settle on a color for more than one day. He has no interest in snuggling, he's much too independent for that... unless he's sad. Which he is sometimes. His moods rumble. He's smiles and raised eyebrows. Then he's frowns. He's got more conviction in a glance that I can muster up in a day and he is not afraid to talk to strangers (like his dad). He likes to pull blankets up over his face when he's sleepy. He's wildly confident but still he likes to hold on to your shirt, just to be sure.

He is easily frustrated (like his mom). He is no baby, and he expects you to not treat him as such. He prefers his feet planted firmly on the ground. Outdoors in the wild earth. The Earth. He is a Capricorn- an Earth sign. He is mixed elements. He is my fire and his father's breeziness. And in his ever changing eyes are the histories of the universes. He is curiosity and passion. He is faith and recklessness.

He is almost 5 months old now.  My little boy with the chameleon eyes.

When We Were Young | The Seventeenth Week

For anyone who may be new here, When We Were Young is a photo project I've taken on documenting our life as a young family with a young baby as honestly as I can. A photo a day (give or take) for a minimum of a year. You can catch up on all the images so far here and read more about the project here

Did you think I'd stopped? April was a bit crazy because I was traveling and obviously couldn't take pictures of The Bubs or my husband and then when I got back we had a bunch of shoots and a wedding in which I dropped and broke my beloved beast of a camera and had to wait for it to be sent away to Canon and then sent back. (Thank heavens for pro memberships!) But it's back now, and this week I got back into the swing of things. The pictures from this week were taken on a variety of cameras: our 5DmkII, our new 5DmkIII, my iPhone, and an old Polaroid Spectra with Impossible Film. Without further adieu...
