five months

our nightly routine is my favorite. simon is such a habit lover. his night comes to a close with a shower with phil and then some mirror time in his towel with me. we make silly faces and talk. these moments, I think, are so important. life, in time, will bring its complications and difficulties, but for now simon is our little boy. his life is free of problems and we are his world and his protectors. one day at a time we are creating this bond with each other, a bond that we will need so dearly in the future. as I put him down in his crib at night, fleece-warmed and belly full, I give him kisses on his cheek and neck and he does this wide open-mouthed smile, closes his drunk baby eyes and fades into sleep. it melts me. this whole mama thing? yeah, love it.
