Simple Pleasures - Ethan @ 13 weeks

 To know whether a woman is a mum, check their mobile phone;s photo gallery - Less selfies, more babies.

A person's priority changes once you become a parent. The smallest things that your little one do,  makes you  want to take 10 photos of the same pose from every single angle possible, shout it out to the world on Facebook.
I do still take photos of Ethan, Every. Single. Day.

I feel that our life is full of simple pleasures that we forget to enjoy, because we take them for granted.
It's good to remind ourselves when life seems flat and grey, take some time to think of life's simple pleasures.
These are mine !

Look at Ethan doing push ups!

He is now having itchy gums and wants to just suck and "bite" on anything he can get hold of! Here is him having a go at the muslins and even Sophie, albeit an albino one - that's another story.

Also, there's his bottles achievements.
It has always been a worry that he will not take the bottles of expressed milk when in the care of his grandparents. There was some difficulty at first, but he began to suck on them like a sucker fish from his dad, as well as his grandparents.

And lastly, he is now able to fall asleep in his car seat all by himself! Ok, only twice thus far, but no more fuss, just calmly sucking his Natursutten pacifier and enjoying his ride home. I'm so proud of you Ethan!

These little nothings that may seem insignificant to everybody else , mean everything to me.
And these are what makes my life pleasurable and keeps me going everyday.
It makes life worthwhile.

"I believe the nicest and sweetest days are not those on which anything very splendid or wonderful or exciting happens but just those that bring simple little pleasures, following one another softly, like pearls slipping off a string."
- L.M Mongomery, Anne of Avonlea
