Things us crazy parents are just enamored with over here lately:
+ he loves to come around and rest his head and body on our backs while we are sitting on the floor. then he will just stand there behind us and when we turn our necks he immediately giggles and lays his head back down.
+ the way he says "meeeeeoooow" anytime he sees a kitty cat and "vffffff" when he sees a dog. the moment this child says "i love you" I may explode. literally my heart will explode.
+ how he will sit still for about 10 minutes on the couch watching curious george. of course, while he is watching that curious little monkey, i am watching him. his face is so sweet and peaceful while he watches and it so rare to see him so still. just sitting. sweetly. intently. engulfed.
+ how he loves getting bundled up to go outside in this cold weather. and how he loves going down the slide all by himself. he will walk to the edge and either reach for my hand to hold while he descends or he will maneuver around on his belly and push himself off and smile the whole way down.
+ the way he insists that I sweep using his small baby broom. when i stop, he immediately gives me the "more" signal.
+ the way he rests his head on my shoulder and falls in to a deep sleep almost immediately come 1 o'clock in the afternoon. it is the sweetest moment.
+ the hugs. the tight hugs. they come rarely but when they do, they are perfect. in those moments, I feel heaven.
