10 Sweetest Things

It's been so long since I've posted about Daniel, I'm afraid he'll get a complex. Months 7 and 8 were so sweet I wanted to freeze him in time. He is adorable, interactive, and not yet mobile--a dream baby. Here are my top 10 sweetest things about him right  now:

  1. His intense hugs – when I wake him in the morning, he grabs my hair with both hands and presses his face into mine, like he wants to eat my face.
  2. When I enter his room in the morning he kicks his legs, waves his arms, wiggles in full body delight. 
  3. He takes two naps a day, and sleeps twelve hours at night. No fuss, no muss. I’m reluctant to type this for fear I will jinx it.
  4. While sitting, he rocks his torso back and forth – a seated happy dance.
  5.  He reaches his hand out with great longing toward people he loves (and lights, and his bottle.)
  6. He flashes his gummy smile, still mostly gummy, with two bottom teeth and a giant top tooth starting to poke through.
  7. He bounces and dances in his jumper for up to an hour, showing different levels of enthusiasm depending on the song. (Like his mamma, he favors something with a good beat.)
  8. He gives air kisses when I say “Kissy.”
  9. He holds his own bottle or sippy cup.
  10. He stuffs food into his own mouth with great gusto, sitting in his high chair as long as we feed him.
What's sweet in your life right now?
