A List

Just so I can never forget, I want to make a list of some of my favorite things about Miles as he is now -- 2 1/2 months old.

  • I absolutely LOVE going to get you out of your bassinet in the mornings. You greet me with the biggest smiles and it always melts my heart, no matter what time in the morning it happens to be.
  • I love watching you play in your bouncy, your big belly sticking out and your chubby little arms swinging around wildly as you try to get this whole coordination thing down.
  • I love how you like to talk to me when I'm changing your diaper - goos and gaas of all sorts of important things that you have to say.
  • I love that today you were crying while I was changing your diaper, until I put the diaper cream on your bottom and you suddenly stopped and had this great look of comfort on your face.
  • I love that sometimes when I'm feeding you you like to put your arm up to cover your face. You would like your privacy during this meal, thank you very much.
  • I love the little growl you make when I take you off one boob to switch to the next. You are very displeased at this interruption in your meal and would like to let me know... with a growl!
  • I love that you surprised me by smiling at complete strangers already, you little flirt!
  • I love that you are such a morning person, full of smiles for anyone and everyone. But by the evenings you are just a tad bit more grumpy.
  • I love watching you nap in your bouncy (sometimes the only way I can get you to nap for longer than 10 minutes) because you will fall asleep as I'm bouncing you and then jerk yourself awake like you just can't believe you let yourself fall asleep during this very important thing you were doing -- absolutely nothing! Go to sleep kid!
  • I love how much you love bath time and you only cry for a second when I pour the water over your face.
  • I love how strong your neck is already, and how everyone is impressed with that.
  • I love that you are already interested in Seasame Street, but only for a few minutes while mommy brushes her teeth, k?
  • I LOVE it when you smile at your plastic friends on your bouncy seat.
  • I love it when you smile at me in the mirror when I'm checking to see if you've fallen asleep on my shoulder yet.
  • I love it when you only want to sleep on my chest. However uncomfortable it might be, I know you will only be able to do that for a little while.
  • I love that when you are crying you'll stop for a second while I put your clothes on. What baby stops crying when they are getting dressed?
  • I love that every time I try to give you the paci you scrunch up your entire face to let me know that THAT is NOT what you wanted to suck on!
  • I love how much you want to be outside, seeing new things and meeting new people. You get so bored in the house and it force me to get out too.
  • I love that if we are out late with friends you refuse to go to sleep until you just can't keep your eyes open. You want to be a part of the party! And as long as there's background noise, you just sit and look adorable.
  • I love your Superman stretch and that now Papa and Nana call you Super Boy because of it.
  • I love the way you shake your fist in the air when you're doing your Superman stretch.
  • I love that the first time you laughed was for your sister Izzy.

And now you are waking up from the bouncy seat... so this list will have to end there. But I just can't wait to pick you up and see your little smile!
