“Ira Conor”

Ira is 5 months old! He continues to be a joyful little guy to have in our family. Ira flips onto his tummy almost immediately upon being laid on the floor. He's constantly hanging out on his stomach taking everything in and he frequently forgets that he can roll onto his back if he wants to. Ira's neck is really strong and he lifts his head all the time. It looks like he's doing little baby crunches. He's super interested in what we're eating or drinking. He's the youngest baby I've had to show interest in food and drink. I haven't started him on solids yet, but I have a feeling he's going to be all in on it! Ira sleeps through the night, loves to nurse and adores his siblings. He still sleeps in our room and I find listening to his little baby breaths at night to be musical and calming. Ira likes to be in water (yay!). He continues to give big smiles and suck on his thumb. He's so dear!

Oh this dude. He's so smiley and drools so much and spends all his time on his tummy. He's a joy and a blessing and how did I never know boys would be so wonderful?!

This was a really sweet scene to happen upon! Maeve then went on to read Ira more books! Sibling bonds are something special to witness.

My little man is 4 months old! Oh Ira, I love him so much. What I hear people around me say the most about Ira is that he's a smiley baby. It's true! He is really quick to smile and his grin is so big and wonderful. Ira has big, round blue eyes which are also a show stopper. Ira sleeps through the night (what a blessing!) and he's a good little napper. Ira can roll onto his tummy from his back and vice versa. I love watching him do this because back to tummy is slow and intentional and often he grunts and groans in the process. He looks like he's working so hard! Ira has recently discovered his lips and his tongue. He likes to suck in his lips and kind of gnaw on them and he's beginning to try out blowing raspberries with his tongue. He's a chatty little fellow. So far, Ira is a bit of a shorty and no heavy weight but his growth is good! The other day at the grocery store, I saw a mom and towering teenage son. At the time I wondered if that would be me and Ira in 15-16 years, but who knows! The idea of having man children feels very foreign still. For now, Ira is a darling baby and I like watching his little personality emerge. I love him so much!

These happy baby blue eyes. Just can't get enough!
