Some of our favorite things about having a baby so far…
When he sticks his tongue out super far and looks me in the eyes to show he’s hungry.
Co-sleeping and waking up to find him staring at me, then drifting off to sleep, then waking up to still find him staring at me.
The gulping satisfied noises he makes as he eats.
Me telling him about my plans for our family’s future, and him seeming to listen all ears.
Telling him fairy tales as he looks me right in the eye.
The way he lifts up his legs to toot.
Having him be crying and then me singing him a lullaby makes him stop.
How shocked he looks when he sees something unexpected.
Teasing him by touching his mouth with his binky, tickling him, and playing other baby games.
When he squeaks and looks at me while doing it.
When he smiles, of course.
His curiosity about everything.
He’s happy to just “T out” (put his arms straight out while on his back) and gaze upwards.
How easily he gets surprised.
How cuddly he is.
His fits are cute.
His grabby hands.
Even though he has little control, he wills his hands over to flop down on mine.
He does a decent job of mimicking things like facial expressions.
Ryder brings us so much joy.
