The way you look up at me while nursing sometimes. Just those big baby blues staring at me.
The way when nursing sometimes you just stop…sigh…and then continue on.
The way you stretch your whole little body and…fart. It cracks me up every time.
I smile every time you burp. It’s amazing how noisy someone so little is.
When you smile really big back at me. A piece of my heart melts. No matter how bad a day I’ve had…that smile changes everything.
When you do smile really big, your dimples show. I have to work so hard to get you to smile that big…and it’s 100% worth it!
When I lay you in your bassinet, when you are ready to wake up, I see the bassinet wiggling. And then a little hand fly up. It makes me smile.
When you are really hungry and you root around on anything.
When you do your sad face with your lip out…breaks my heart.
When you fan your crazy toes out. I take pictures of your feet all the time just because of this.
I don’t want to forget how your little head looks when I lay down to nurse you. Round…soft…full of brown hair…slightly moving with each big gulp…
I don’t want to forget how it feels when your whole hand grabs my little finger and holds on.
The way you smell…that smell that I would bottle up if I could.
I don’t want to forget how it feels when you close your eyes and lay your little head down on me to sleep. The little weight on my chest as you sleep…
These things I’m living every day right now will go by so fast. I know this because I remember thinking the same things when Shayne was a baby… “I’ll never forget…” I know I will forget so much. It happens when each day brings new memories. But this way…I have it down in writing. Reading back through what I’ve just typed…makes it more real.
I’m going to try to do a post on each of the kids like this. The stages that each are in their lives and their uniqueness…not things I want to forget.
