Ten Things I Love About My Newborn Baby

As if I can only pick 10 things!!!  Newborns are truly just sweet little gifts - simple and pure. 

I really did forget some of the most special things about these little bitty humans.   I think my most favorite thing about having a third child is that I am not freaking out so much about what to do with a baby and just enjoying having a baby.   I take time to stare at him, touch his skin more and just enjoy being with him.  My house is a mess, his room still needs work and many other things are left undone and it's perfectly okay.  I have a  new baby to love on and as a mother of three now, I know one thing for sure - the newborn stage goes by way too fast.

These are not in any particular order, just some favorites.

  1. The spontaneous jerk of his little hands or feet.
  2. The little squeaks and sighs he makes as he eats or when I pick him up.
  3. His smell.
  4. His feet.
  5. The way he snuggles his little head into my neck.
  6. The way he roots around when he is hungry. 
  7. His soft skin - could anything be softer? 
  8. His soft dark hair.
  9. His hands.
  10. The way he tries so hard to open his eyes and take in his new world. 

Like I said, I could go on and on.  I think it's safe to say, I'm in love with the little guy. 

What is also pretty cool is that as I love on this baby, I am reminded of little things that were special with my other two when they were newborns.
