I admit it: I have an easy baby

At the risk of putting a big ole’ jinx on it: 5-month-old Jake is one laid-back baby so far. His demeanor hasn’t nearly matched the horror stories I heard/read about while I was pregnant on colicky babies crying for hours on end and sucking the life force out of their parents. My Mom claims I have to have another baby just so I can realize how easy I’ve got it.

And oh, the smiles! There is nothing better than Jake's smiles at the end of the day. You can get this kid to smile and laugh through is cries, even his hungry cries. He’s been this way from the very beginning, as evidenced by these photos of my Mr. Smiley:

10 days old
2 months old
3 months old
4 months old
4 and a half months old
5 months old
So, not for the sake of bragging, but for the sake of all the pregnant soon-to-be Moms out there worrying about having a colicky and difficult baby (because those are always the ones you hear about), I'm here to tell you that easy babies do exist!
