I love how you coo and kick your feet at me when you want me to pick you up. And how serious you get if I don’t do it right away.
I love how your bottom jaw jiggles when you get nervous or over stimulated.
I love it when you lay your head against me when I hold you. And how you hold on to me when we dance.
I adore the way you tuck your head into the sling when you want to fall asleep.
I love the way you want it dark when you fall asleep, and that you are sensitive to everything. Noise, sights, light, sounds… sometimes it’s overwhelming for you, but I know that this world isn’t going to take you by surprise. You are going to see it all.
You are such a gift, my sweet little man.
