This morning my baby woke up with a personality. It’s like he suddenly realized he didn’t have to stay a sticky, damp blob forever and began working on his people skills. And boy are those people skills ADORABLE. I took him to Target this afternoon in the Maya sling and I swear I made every woman in a 10 mile radius ovulate. He was cooing and smiling and flirting with everyone we saw, including one little girl in her mom’s shopping cart who was about 2. I guess he’s going to like older women.

His new awareness of the world means I don’t live in constant fear he’ll wake up while we’re out of the house. I actually had fun at BJ’s today, telling him about what we were buying and who we were looking at. He seems to enjoy the shampoo aisle but not the frozen foods section. He also thought it was hilarious when I made faces at the idiots who blocked the aisles or stood in front of the diapers I wanted for ten minutes. So in case you were wondering, 7 weeks is when “OHMIGOD WHAT HAVE I DONE TO MY LIFE???” turned into “Oh yeah, now I know why people do this!”
