Two days ago was Theo’s two-month birthday.
It’s amazing how much he’s grown and changed already. He’s starting to be much more alert, taking in his surroundings, and visibly enjoying new sights and sounds, reacting with a smile or even an almost-giggle.
As his parents, Tobias and I are of course biased, but we often look at him and say, “He’s soooooo cute!” and we just can’t believe he’s ours. We’re so lucky.
Today we went shopping and he took a nice nap in the stroller as we walked around our neighborhood, stopping at various stores to get what we needed. Some luggage locks for Tobi, who is leaving tomorrow for a business trip for two weeks in Mallorca. (Still a bit jealous I can’t come!) A bicycle lock for our stroller. Some deodorant and batteries. Just the basics.
When we got to the Baumarkt (like Home Depot or Lowes) to get a hook to attach our new stroller lock to, Theo had woken up and was crying. I thought he might be hungry, so I told Tobi to go in and get what we needed, and I would sit outside on the bench and feed Theo. But when I picked Theo up out of the stroller, he seemed quite happy to be on my shoulder and wasn’t showing any signs of hunger. So I took him inside instead, and I’m so glad I did.
Theo loved the Baumarkt! He was wide-eyed and kept staring at all the things. When I found Tobi looking at the hooks, nails and screws, Theo just seemed to be enamored with looking at the things on the shelves. Tobias talked to him and asked him if he liked the Baumarkt, and Theo got this huge grin on his face and squealed. It was THE CUTEST THING EVER! He continued to be in a happy mood, smiling and cooing at everything, for the remainder of our time at the Baumarkt.
Just something I want to remember, because it was so adorable.
I love this little guy more and more each day.
