Enjoy the journey, little one.

My youngest son is now six weeks old. He’s simultaneously mellow, unflappable by most outside circumstance, and determined.

Where his older brother once preferred melting into skin-to-skin time, Littler J struggles and strains to build his muscles. He has things to do and places to be. “Don’t be in such a hurry!” his doctor told him as he fought to push onto all fours today.

I often tell him the same thing. “It’s not about how quickly you get there, little one. It’s about how much you enjoy the journey.”

    I see a lot of A’s family in that little face. 🙂

    Wow! 6 weeks already! So awesome! He’s adorable. 🙂

    This boy is going places! Or at least he is catchingg up with his big brother which is possibly one of the best life skills I ever learned as the youngest.

    Love how you call him “little one.” That’s what I called our daughters until I grew into the reality of their “name.” Loving this!

    Aw! My heart just melted. What an adorable little guy 🙂

    I’m no expert, but I think it’s notable that your littler guy is up on his arms in the picture–advanced or what! He’s so sweet, please give him a kiss from a distant admirer. 🙂

    So sweet! Isn’t it fun to watch the differences?

    Oh, my goodness! He’s already pulling his head up. He’s just as cute as can be! You and A make adorable children!

    Ohhhhhh. That first picture – it sums up all your words here. What a gorgeous little guy. He’s obviously got places to go and people to see!

    Oh, he’s so cute. I love when they push themselves up for the first time. He’s really young to be doing that. He’s advanced!

    Fondly, Elizabeth

    He is absolutely adorable! Huge congrats – and great advice to him 🙂 Enjoy the journey, yourself, beautiful mama.

    Oh boy! He’s working hard. Watch out for that one. He’ll compete with himself and go far.

  18. May 16, 2014 at 8:29 am

    Oh my! I just love when they lift their little heads up for the first time, all wobbly and sweetness. In no time, he is going to keep you chasing after him, I’m sure.

  19. May 16, 2014 at 9:37 am

    He is the sweetest little guy!

    Such adorable pictures!

    Oh. My. Gosh. He is so adorable! My second did the same thing – and still does three years later. He gets so frustrated that he can’t climb as high as his older sister or run as fast as her or carry as much. He works so hard just to keep up, but I suspect that by kindergarten he won’t have nearly as much to worry about – partially because he’ll finally just be bigger, but also because he’s been “in training” his whole life!
