Things I love about Porter

Taking a nap in Granny's arms. How comfy!
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.

Hanging out with Daddy. He's the coolest!
I am so ridiculously cute!

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!

I absolutely LOVE all those new pictures. How is he getting so much cuter each day?!?!

Oh, and the sweet, yet possessive hand on your breast may one day turn to not-so-sweet possessive grabbing, so beware :)

He is so cute! Jake and I can't get over it. I think I came to the conclusion yesterday that Porter is the human translation of Curious George. Cute little round head, button nose, big sweet smile... TOO LOVEABLE! Obviously, he should have his own franchise.

So sweet. You will love reading all of those things in the many days to come.
He is one precious boy!
