I really had no idea how much I would love my baby! smile

There have been days when I haven't had a clue what to do with him, he's 14 weeks but I just am overwhelmed by the love I feel for him!

He properly smiled at me today, not just a little grin but a big beaming smile and it made my heart sing!

When I go to pick him up in the morning, he sort of stretches his arms out and bounces about like he can't wait for me to pick him up. I have no idea where he gets his happy nature from!! grin

I was with dh for 14 years before this baby came but he was really worth the wait.

Nice to see a happy thread OP smile

I love the way ds (6m) idolises his big sister (3) and chortles with laughter when she's acting the goat!

How much dd2 loves dd1 and is very jolly when we fetch her from nursery grin
Dd2 pats my face as if to check I'm still there grin

How much my ds(8weeks) smiles alot when he sees Daddy and I. All the time. I keep telling him I'm going to dunk him in my coffee, followed by a smile from me, which makes him smile so I laugh my head off. Babies are bloody lovely <3

I love dd2's chubby thighs! And her proper belly laughs when she finds something funny - usually her older brother doing something daft like blowing raspberries at her or dancing wildly.

I love his gummy smiles (i'll be sad when his teeth come). I love the way he squeals with pure joy in the bath splashing or in the jumperoo. And the way he cuddles me when he's feeding. And how he grabs his feet. Scrummy.

Mine is 14 days old and makes the cutest squeaks when he stretches when you wake him. I love the glee when he realises that the boob is ready and it's feeding time. I love the quiet way he watches his older sister. I love having a little baby again, I forgot some of the perks of having a newborn. I could only remember the colicky cry of my DD.

DS has the chunkiest thighs ever which are adorable. He also plays his own little version of peek-a-boo with us.
He's six months and I have a 6 year gap between him and DS2, I forgot what magical little creatures they are from birth! smile

I love the way she smiles in the mornings when i go to get her and the way she gets excited when she sees my boob lol and her adorable little nose and chubby cheeks. In fact i love everything about her! It's just amazing how much you can love your child. Crazy :-)

scratchandsniff Fri 10-May-13 16:51:23

DS is now 6.5mo and such a character. I love the way he strokes my face when I feed him, that he can now suck his toes, the raspberry blowing noise he makes, when he gives me a big smile when I go into him in the morning, I could go on and on.

Pinkflipflop Fri 10-May-13 17:03:18

Oh I'm loving these!

I forgot about the adorable noise he makes when he yawns! <totally besotted>

NumTumDeDum Fri 10-May-13 18:03:06

Ok I have a new love - he just rolled over and then back again. I feel a bit teary. Someone hand me a grip!

Pinkflipflop Fri 10-May-13 18:19:05

num he rolled???

Am welling up for you!

grin grin

I've got DD sleeping on my legs right now. She's all crumpled up and looks like a goblin or a garden gnome! grin

lola88 Sat 11-May-13 21:06:33

I love now DS can kiss and cuddle, we were sitting on the bathroom floor earlier waiting for the bath to run and he kept cuddling me I could have just held on to him forever, and I love his little cute baby voice when he's annoyed he shouts at his big cousin to 'calm down' when she runs alone the street it's had strangers in stitches watching him he's so serious... the list just goes on and on

Fairylea Sat 11-May-13 21:09:51

I love the way ds 11 months waves at me up and down frantically when I go to his room when he wakes from a nap smile he's just learnt how to wave and is very pleased with himself smile

I love his little chubby toes and I kiss them all day long smile

I never thought I'd have any more babies after dd aged 10 for medical reasons and both dh and I have infertility issues so ds is our little miracle (as is dd).

Cuddlydragon Sat 11-May-13 22:52:17 I'm the funniest thing on the planet or the serious look he gets on his little face as he concentrates on clapping his hands.......I'll take that grip when you're finished with it NumTumdedum

PoppyWearer Sat 11-May-13 23:00:24

Ladies, it's all about the feet. Please treasure those lovely soft soles.

My DC2 is now 20mo and his feet are now officially not soft. And he is DCLast so I'll have to wait until I'm a granny now to get my next soft-foot fix. <sob>

And I don't even like babies that much.

Pinkflipflop Sat 11-May-13 23:19:39

Yes the feet! I could eat my baby's feet they are so scrummy!!

Doodledumdums Sat 11-May-13 23:33:10

Aaaah I love these!

I love the way my 4mo's breath smells all milky in the mornings.

I love the way he smiles when he wakes up and sees me lying next to him (currently unintentionally co-sleeping...whoops!)

I love the way he giggles so much when I blow raspberries on his tummy after a bath.

I love how he seems to think it is hilarious when I pretend to gobble his feet and tell him that he is so yummy I am going to eat him for my dinner!

I love love love everything about him!

*The only thing that I don't love is how fast his little fingernails grow, because he hates having them cut and I feel mean when I have to do it!

marshmallow2468 Sun 12-May-13 07:40:16

His chubby wrists! I don't know what it is about them, but they're so squishable!

10storeylovesong Sun 12-May-13 19:40:18

I love the way my ds grips my little finger when I give him his bottle. He was 13 weeks prem and spent the first 9 weeks in NICU so I just love having him home and getting to know him and being able to cuddle him all day every day!

Kafri Sun 12-May-13 20:29:28

What a lovely thread...

I love watching him grow and change daily.
I love this little sucky thing he does with his top lip and I love this cute little laugh he has where he sounds like a sheep baaing along with his full on chuckle! grin

Moomoomee Sun 12-May-13 20:34:05

I love how DS wraps his arms around my neck when I cuddle him. It makes me never want to put him down smile

LadyMaryCrawley Tue 14-May-13 16:59:58

What a lovely thread!

I love how DD is all smiles first thing in the morning when I go to pick her up.

The way she'll break off feeding to smile at me if I smile at her.

The look of intense concentration as she contemplates her own hands.

When she looks all pleased with herself for using her baby noises or sitting up.

And I just love the straining noises and screwed up red face she makes when she's having a poo, she's like an old man on the loo and it's hilarious! (She's ebf so not constipated or anything!)
