You = Love.


The way you grip your ear with your little fist as you sleep. I imagine this is one of the ways you hung out before being born and wonder if it will be something you will carry on with you as you grow up.

The way your eyelashes are growing and uncurling just a bit at a time.

The way you hold your thumb between your pointer & middle fingers as you make a fist.

The way you have started to give us those beautiful smiles.

The way you rub your feet together while nursing.

The way you are making things easy on me with your go-with-the-flow personality.

The way you fit right in with our little family.

You = love.
