The other day I went to pick up Noah from his mom’s house, and she held his feet up for me to check out his brand new shoes. They were nice. But they were ginormous. And by ginormous, I mean that they were shoes that could only fit on a big kid. An older kid….
The toes...I love baby toes. My oldest son had the teeniest, sweetest little piggies. And he would giggle and laugh every time I kissed them or played "piggy went to market."
When I wasn't watching closely, almost overnite, he became 6 ft. tall and his piggies wear a size 13.5 shoe...the sweetness is gone...
I don't know Donna.. My son is 21 now and everytime I hug him I still smell that wonderful baby smell! I fear I will never have that again.
I have not read all the comments..Too many.. But I have to say, the Baby smell! Soft and pure and sweet. I miss that!
That baby smell. Best smell in the world. And general pink, melting cuteness. The way I could prop her up with pillows and we'd play silly games for hours, how intensely her eyes said I love you before she could speak it.
Loved your article!! It's nice to read about a man enjoying the fun of little boy clothes... I'm expecting a son in a few months and his daddy can't be bothered with the clothes, meanwhile I just bought an entire Gymboree collection on clearance today :) My daughter is 8 so it's been a while since I had a newborn and I can't wait to smell his little head and have his little fist squeeze my finger! :)
.... my littlest is 3 and a half and is the most loveable little man, always snuggling in and putting his little arms round my neck and saying he loves me, still always on my lap for cuddles... just now my legs go numb as he's pretty heavy! :D
I love when my 15 week falls asleep with one hand grasping my finger and the often hilarious search for his thumb. Finding his thumb usually involves jamming his forefinger up his nostril at the same time!
I doubt you'll have any trouble finding a volunteer to help you with another baby! I love when they are tired and put their head on your shoulder and snuggle up into a ball! I love babies!
I agree with the smell...for some reason two year olds just don't smell as nice as little babies lol
their smile, their laugh, their hands and feet, their snuggles and their need for love..not moving doesn't hurt either!
