BIG smiles...after a good meal!
My adorable hat that Aunt Tori had made for me. It has the day I was born on the back, too! :)
Right before bedtime.
Sleeping on Mommy and my boppy.
It makes me sad to think how fast time goes by. I can't believe my baby is 10 days old already! I know that looking back I won't be able to remember all of the tiny and wonderful things about our boy when he was so little, so as I was sitting up nursing him last night at 4 a.m. I was thinking of all of the things I love about our tiny baby.
Things I love about Porter...
~His facial expressions.
~How his hand lays flat on my breast when I'm nursing him in a very possesive sort of way.
~How his tongue releases from the top of his mouth and makes a clicking noise. (I REALLY love this...I don't know why, but it makes me so happy!)
~How his head fits so perfectly in the palm of my hand.
~How soft and lucious his hair is. It gets greasy really quickly because I am always "petting" his sweet head!
~How when we bathe him he screams so loud, and when I wash his hair he quiets down.
~How I can calm him when I put him on my shoulder and pat his back in one specific way.
~How we can make it a whole night without him crying.
~How he peeks at us with one eye barely open...we call that giving us the "stink eye."
~How he is so warm when I pick him up out of his bassinett to feed him in the night.
~How even after eating for an hour and a half, I will put him on my shoulder an he will root for something to suck on. We call him "rootie" sometimes because he loves to suck.
~How we can call him any nickname in the book, and he doesn't mind. Our favorites are "noodle", "buddy", "nugget", "rootie", "Mr. P", and "Mr. Poopie Pants" from Daddy (with a deep voice of course). I also call him "my noonie" a lot.
~When he stretches his forehead wrinkles up like an old man.
~How he makes the cutest squeaking noises.
~When he was first born we decided he sounded like a pterodactyl when he first starts to cry (this has faded a bit!)
~How he smells (delicious!)
~How when he yawns his little mouth is stretched to the extreme!
~How after he eats and is falling asleep, you are almost guaranteed to get a smile.
I think you would be hard-pressed to find a baby who is so adored!
