โ€œA portrait of Sebastian Jaya, every week, for 52 weeks in 2016.โ€

Sebastian sitting propped-up by cushions on the couch…he looks so grown up, it scared me! Time seems to be passing by so quickly! He is changing every day…I gaze at him and see changes in his face all the time. His eyes enchant me…large, wide-eyed and curious. I could gaze at those eyes all day long.

It’s all about his fingers and hands at the moment…loves sucking his fingers and is able to shove almost all his fingers {and at times his whole hand!} into his mouth. He’ll suck anything that’s nearby…my t.shirt, his dribble catcher, his clothes, a toy…whatever he can put in his mouth.ย 

This little man has certainly captured my heart.

Iโ€™m linking up with Practising Simplicity.

    He has a special way of adding joy in every single day. How delightful and expressive he is.
    One of those photos where you see his future in the depths of his soul and you see the wisdom he has and wonder whether he’s been here before.
    You know that the crease above your/his lips. The little dent that looks like someone shushed (spelling? ) him/you up? Well I believe that when we are preggo an angel talks to them and tells them the secret of the universe and just before we give birth the angel (or god whatever you believe) told him to be quiet and not share the secrets of the universe. The angel puts her finger on the baby’s lip and that mark is a remind us not to share secrets ๐Ÿ’›๐Ÿ’“ z

      Awww that’s so lovely Natty! I’ve never heard that before about the ‘taint’ {it ain’t {taint} your nose and it ain’t your mouth = taint – that’s what we called it in my family! Hehehe}…your explanation is so sweet. Oh I do feel that he has been here before…so many things tell me this. Pretty much from day one, I’ve felt like he is guiding me on this journey of mama-hood, he knows best! I follow his guide. So much expression and soul in those big eyes of his. Just adore his eyes! And so hope they don’t change colour. I can’t seem to capture the true colour of his eyes but they are this mesmerising grey-dark blue colour – so unique and gorgeous! Thanks for stopping by lovely xxx

    Xander was not a good day time sleeper as a baby. He would sit up and look around and he used to look into space with such intent I often wondered who he was watching. I stopped doing nighttime feeds because (I went back to work too soon lol) when I fed him he would stop, look at something and laugh. As a toddler he would predict weird things like family about to ring and people visiting. It would freak us out. Then Miette came along and I don’t think I noticed the quirks as much. I swear that with all three there’s been a moment or two as a baby that I thought they were old wise souls. I do actually believe that babies know so much but just can’t tell us (even if child development says otherwise). Xander’s eyes too are an interesting mix of blue/grey and don’t always look blue. His haven’t changed too much I don’t think? But Sebastian’s look (oh I’ve been calling him Sebby at night when I look at his photo – I don’t know why though lol) in his eyes reminds me of Xander around the same age. Wise and old. He’s expressive and just so beautiful. I just wish I could give him big squishy cuddles. And wish we could drink coffee and create together. Love your blog. I think I’ve read every post… I normally check it weekly but I’ve been reclusive of late. Glen said since October I’ve been just a bit weird lol. This last year I think was most challenging one yet. Christmas was very hard and the need to write has been strong but I still can’t face our computer. I’ve not blogged since Miss Miette died. And I’ve not used my drawing tablet and/or photoshop. Glen and Xander use my tablet as the mouse! And as much as babble I actually hate using my phone to type. That said I’m off to read more passive aggressive notes and to giggle over people’s silliness before I say goodnight to the wall and try to sleep in this extreme humidity and heat. 38 degrees here tomorrow – hotter than bikram! The humidity is crazy. Glen (swear I’ve never heard him whinge about heat) is even complaining about the heat. We live on the bay and the usual sea breeze has gone. If there’s been a breeze it’s like a humid slap in the face and then it’s still again. Of course we have no air conditioning and all feel like we are sweltering. I’m extremely grateful for 711 and 1/2 price slushies especially as Amรฉlie’s school is next to one
    Although our slushies were water within 20 minutes today. Never seen them melt so quick. Lol ๐Ÿ˜ loooveeee you Bu. In my thoughts always x x

      Hi Natty, thanks so much for the compliments on my blog and so happy to hear that you have read all my posts. It’s really nice to know that there is someone {at least one person} out there that reads my blabble. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Oh, the comment about Xander looking into space with such intent…there are so many times that I see Sebastian {it’s ok to call him Sebby or Seb, I think it’s cute, and that it will come into play for me a little down the track} looking into space and he will smile or frown or have his curious face on, and I feel like he is looking at someone. Maybe this is just what babies do but I honesty get the vibe like there is someone there. A couple of times I have turned around to see if there is someone there or I’ve felt the vibe and got shivers like there is a spirit standing there. It’s really weird. Has freaked me out a coupe of times! I totally agree that babies know so much. My little man is definitely an old soul, I felt it from the day he was born and see it in his eyes every day. I would love to be drinking coffee and creating with you – we are so alike in so many ways! X
      Sorry you have been struggling, it’s a long, hard process and there will always be times that are more difficult than others and different things trigger this I guess, Christmas being a big one! Least it’s a new year with fresh beginnings. I love a new year – to feel like I can start a fresh {NOT that I’ve actually started anything fresh as yet! Oops! But there’s still time!} Oh the crazy weather atm, ours has been up and down, about to head into another heat wave! And yes, we too have been making the most of the 1/2 price Slurpees at 7/11! I LOVE them haha.
      Thanks again for stopping by Natty – big hugs xxx
