Is it the chunky little thighs? The pinchable cheeks? The bright eyes?

 

On both my kids, my favorite part has been the back of their necks. It probably started with DS's stork bite birthmark. The skin there is super soft and I just love it. Weird I guess, but I don't care!

I'd have to say her mouth--I just love her sweet warm breath, and the way she smiles and shows her gums, and the way she nibbles at my face when I'm near to her (she tried to nurse my nose the other day).

 

Also, her hands, and I also do love the back of her neck (she also has stork bites).

It's so hard to pick just one, but I'd have to go with her belly! The way it sticks out when she stretches is so adorable I can hardly stand it. I *must* kiss it!!


It's such a relief to finally trust yourself.

I love DD's hands - they are so expressive and elegant - even while being adorably chubby, lol. love.gif

 

Second on the list would be the chubby cheeks she got from her daddy.

It's changed as she's gotten older. It used to be her little mouth because the top lip pointed... then it was her little butt and thighs when she'd stand with the cellulite all over... now it's probably her little curls starting all over her head. I love the way they curl over her ears!! love.gif

It's so hard to pick, but I'd have to say his smell. He smells like nothing else on earth and I almost hate giving him a bath. Even though I use unscented soap, it always takes a day to get the smell back. Thinking of his smell helps me to get more milk out when I pump!

I love everything about my almost-two-year-old, but I especially love the dimple in his chin and the deep dimples he gets when he smiles :)

I love his cute little cowlick that he's had since day one.  He looks like a little a proper little 11 week old gentleman!

Love this!  I do love it when he tries to nurse my chin or my cheek. 

 

But I have to say, my favorite parts of him are his cheeks.  I could kiss them all day long, every day.  Seriously.

Eliza has fluffy hair, too. I give her more baths than she needs so that it is extra fluffy and I love running my fingers through it and making it stand up. It smells so good (thank you, California Baby). Mmmmmm.

I think thick brows are awesome. They worked for Brooke Shields!
