Whoorlito – 7 Month Update

This morning, I noticed in the Nabbalicious Margarita Recap that she mentioned “Tales of Wito’s adorableness are no fib, either. In fact, I think Whoorl totally underplays how cute he is.” Um, is that like an INVITATION to boast and spew forth all things Wito? My precious, old soul Wito?

Sounds like it to me, and how appropriate that it’s time for an update.


I chose this photo because it accurately represents Wito 95% of the time. Just taking it all in…intently curious, yet calm. It’s challenging coming up with words to describe his personality, but ones that come to mind would be:

Happy. Peaceful. Mellow. Extremely observant. Intense when excited. Is this an ad for a dating service?

May I annoy you and brag a teensy bit? I promise it will be short. He is such a pleasure to be around. SUCH a pleasure. He loves to “talk” on the phone to my parents and sister and is currently lobbying the Olympic committee in hopes of adding The Jumperoo as a winter sport. He rarely fusses, cries maybe once a week and sleeps like a champ. The child hasn’t slept less than 12 hours at night in months. Literally. D and I were trying to remember the last time he woke up in the middle of the night and I think it was 3-4 months ago. These types of things make a lady very happy. Maybe his size has something to do with it…did I mention Wito was 22 pounds and off the charts for height at his 6-month checkup?! The boy is mammoth.

And yes, we all know what is going to happen tonight since I actually published this paragraph to the world. The Braggy Blog Phenomenon. This coupled with the upcoming developmental changes might have me eating my words, but up until this point, he has been nothing short of an angel.

And that’s why I have to say, regardless of what happens in the future, Wito deserves to be acclaimed today. I am so proud of him. It’s not about about whose child is cuter or funnier or developmentally superior, it’s about the bliss we experience in their presence. Right, my bitches? For me, it’s the calm (yes, calm) he brings to my frenzied mind. And okay, he’s fucking CUTE. I feel like most of this blog revolves around my irks and whatnot, but today, I can confidently say I have no irks with Wito. **Cliche Alert** He is such a blessing and I’m so lucky.

But SHIT kid, I’m running out of material. Could you help me out, yo?

    I’ll take 10 just like him. SOOO cute!

    That’s so awesome. A calm child really is a blessing. I also have a 12-hour night sleeper (frantically knocking wood) and I love it but fear the next child won’t be quite as easy! Ah well. Can’t worry about that now. Enjoy…

    Those eyes! THOSE CHEEKS! I want to eat him up.

    His eye color is so beautiful and rare – will they stay that way? (asks the girl who has only seen three children close up in all of her 33 years.)

    BTW, I pimped you out on Jurgennation today. HOT.

    My hottie pediatrician says they will stay that color. Or I think that’s what he said, I was too busy imagining him naked.

    I could totally lend you some night wakings, if you want. I mean, I know you want some, and Asher is just DYING to share.

    But he IS adorable. That much I know.

    he’s sincerely a gorgeous baby.


    March 7, 2007 at 12:08 pm

    That first picture – wow! Congratulations you lucky mama.

    Glad to see he is doing soooo well! What a sweetheart. :) Hope to see you guys soon!!

    This is why they won’t let me have one…..cause I WOULD talk about how cute mine is all day long ;).

    He is adorable…totally cute!

  • Jenifer

    Sheesh…He’s a cutie. Between him and Baby Bug, I think my ovaries are going to explode.

    Is it possible he is growing more handsome with each passing month? The first photo is just gorgeous.

    And how wonderful for you that your little boy sleeps 12 long hours! I don’t think I have ever had a full 12 uninterrupted hours and J is 3.5 years old!

    Enjoy every minute, they grow so fast, next thing you know they will want to be borrowing the car ;).

    what a lucky momma you are! seriously. he is too cute for words to express. those eyes!

  • Kim

    March 7, 2007 at 1:26 pm

    Oh my god. Those eyes. There are not words. And of course – so jealous over the 12-hour sleeping sessions. And the mellow… And the peaceful… Mine is always going, going, going – I wouldn’t know what to do if she slowed down. Or slept. Did I mention my god, those eyes? They just reach into your soul! So handsome!

    Hard to believe he is already 7 months – and he is such a dear little sugar.

  • Lisa

    holy crap – the kid is a star. those eyes! and, um, any secrets for the “sleeping like a champ” would be appreciated…i’m into week seven of this motherhood thing and woo boy, am i tired.

    Now that’s more like it with the gushing! He’s perfect.

  • natalie

    So crazy with the blue eyes! I thought brown eyes (like your lovely peepers) were normally dominate. You’re both too adorable. What a great mamasita you are and what a gorgeous little Wito you have.

  • Danielle

    He really is a handsome bugger. My eight and a half month old Emily (older woman alert!) thinks so; she squealed at his pictures.

  • Kelly

    March 7, 2007 at 6:17 pm

    Off the charts….wow….he is Chloe’s soul mate. We are barely hanging in there at 97th percentile for height and weight. I agree…I wonder if the being big and healthy has anything to do with the amazing calm and excellent sleepers they are. whatever the reason…I have NOOOO complaints and I am so glad Anders is bringing so much joy to you guys. Love the photos..excellent lighting.

  • Angella

    March 7, 2007 at 6:07 pm

    He’s absolutely beautiful! Maybe we could arrange a play date, if we ever get to California. He and Emily can gaze into each other’s blue eyes, and you and I can drink margaritas. Just a thought :)

  • Amanda

    March 7, 2007 at 7:32 pm

    Remember those bleary-eyed emails we exchanged when our kids were mere weeks old? I am so glad those hazy days of exhaustion are behind us! Anders is delicious and I love hearing you gush about him.

  • trish

    March 7, 2007 at 11:15 pm

    we’re going on 9 months here (and 17 pounds) and the longest he’s ever slept in a row is 9 hours… sheesh! Enjoy every second of Anders sleep – that’s an order!!!

  • Jen

    You definitely deserve to brag about your delicious blue-eyed bebe more often! I am dying of the cuteness. Thanks for posting these pics, they made my day!

    He is precious precious precious and I miss seeing you both every day. I can’t believe his girlfriend arrived broken.

    I was thinking the other day about the way he kept leaning his head back to look up at me when we were having lunch at the beach and it made me laugh. “Still there? Good. Wait. Still there? Good.”

  • LVGurl

    I know it has already been said, but THOSE EYES!

    And yes, I’m no expert, but at 7 months the eyes should be green forever.

    Maybe he and Paige can wrestle? His 22 lbs to her 20.

    And there is nothing cliche about saying you’re blessed. You are. Tell him that everyday.

    Little (BIG rather) Wito man is really looking more and more like a little boy, not baby. He is so super handsom! Happy seven months dude!

    I want to eat his head.

    He’s so beautiful, Whoorl! :) I just want to pinch his little cheeks!

  • don't call me ma'am

    March 8, 2007 at 12:50 pm

    I think Wito needs to post one of these days. I’d love to hear about his point of view regarding the Margarita Fest and all the other Whoorl household-goings-on!

    Definitely the world’s most beautiful child!!

    How can it be seven months already? He’s just a peach, so handsome. I’m glad he’s such a great baby, and that he brings you so much happiness. Right now I’m feeling my own baby flip like a fish in my stomach, and I hope I’ll say all of these things and more about her/him!

    What a gorgeous baby! And gorgeous photos!
