Okay ladies, are you totally head over heels in love with your adorable baby (or babies)? What's are some of the really cute things about your baby that just melt your heart?

I love Teddy's cutie, chubby, soft cheeks
I love the funny way he looks at me out of the corner of his eye when I'm toting him around the house in the crook of my arm
he has the softest ears ever. LOL
he has a little round button on his chin. SO CUTE!
I love the way he sleeps so peacefully when he's tucked up next to me.
Mmmm, soft baby hair.
I love the way he starts nursing like it's a serious and important job....then he drifts off into happy milky dreamland.

Okay, your turn! What's cute about your babies?

Aww, you sound totally in love.

I love the little newborn grunts, the blank stares, and how he fights for that nipple. I love my little guy's blond eyelashes and his tiny little feet, and the way he sleeps with his arms above his head.

I love the little grunts Sonny makes.
How peaceful he looks when he's sleeping.
All his crazy baby looks.
His smile yesterday while he was nursing! like he was on a cloud!
How he looks for his sister when she's making noise. Like he's a detective. Then when he finds her... his eyes are glued!
The look he gets when I blow on his wet bum.

Awwww... I love everyone's!

When he's done nursing at night and he lifts his head, turns it and lays it on my breast to fall asleep

The sound of his breathing when he lays his head on my shoulder to fall asleep

How he wiggles excitedly when beginning a nursing and puts his fists in either side of the breast and moves his head really fast left to right to find the nipple

How relaxed he gets when we blow the hairdryer on him during a diaper change

The fleeting smiles

Bright-eyed looking around

Tiny chubby feet

Little lamb grunts when awake and mouse squeaks when asleep!

Her smiles, and little chirpy laugh now.

When she "talks", cooing at me and does this sweet little lift of her head at the end to punctuate her "words".

Her milky breath at 4 am.

The fuzzy hair at the back of her head, from moving her head around so much!

Her eyes . . . I could look into them forever!

Katherine's cheeks, they are so squishable
Her fuzzy ears, she is the first of my babies with fuzz on her ears
How she falls asleep in the crook of my arm

How fun! I loved reading everyone elses.

- chubby hands, cheeks, and a double chin
- his "waking up" noises, as he stretches
- beautiful dark grey/blue eyes!
- his hungry faces... like a little bird, opening his mouth and looking at me
- the way he sleeps with his arms up by his face
- his alert, wide awake looks, and how he raises his head if he's on his tummy

delaneymom 04-16-2008 11:16 PM

babies-they're so sweet! Most of mine are repeats, but I still love them.

Her little gummy mouth, and all the faces she makes.
When she pulls off after nursing at night and puts her head on the nursie pillow.
All the little noises she makes.
The hair on the back of her head-it's so soft.
The black fur at the top of her tiny bumber.

I love how she gets a completely puzzled look on her face every time she farts...eyes as wide open as they'll go.

She also looks like she's concentrating on something VERY IMPORTANT every time she poops - pursed lips and everything!

I love how she still looks JUST like her daddy, to the point that people who have only ever seen photographs of my DH recognize specific features of his on her face. (She has his eyes and nose)

I love the big grin she randomly gets when she's sleeping, and can't wait to see her real smile.

ETA I love her hair...I'm sure it will be curly when it's long enough, but right now it's just fuzzy!

AGierald 04-17-2008 07:11 AM

oh what a fun thread!!

i love:
the way he snorts like a piggy when hes hungry

the way he looks so hard for the nipple, lol

the way he smells my breast to make sure its me before he eats! i love this sooo much

the way he looks JUST like his daddy

how he tries to swim in the tub when i have him on his back.. he puts his hands behind his head and kicks his feet

the way he toots in the middle of the night... just random toots i hear all night, lol.

the way he amkes faces and sticks his tongue out at himself in the mirror on his bouncy seat

his adorable smoochable cheeks

his cute ticklish toes

the way his armpits are ticklish

the way he gets a big smile after he toots or sneezes... and how he smiles at my mom and dad when they're being silly.

the cute faces he makes when he falls asleep-- a big HUGE smile, then he gets a pouty, gonna-start-screaming face, and then back to the smile, lol.

AbbottsMomma 04-17-2008 07:26 AM

I love the smile he gives me when I go to get him from his nap!

I love the back of his neck when he's playing with his little toys on the living room floor.

I love the little blonde curls that are starting to form at the nape of his neck.

I love the sounds he makes when he eats (he makes a lot of "mmm" sounds!)

I love his buddha belly!

I love how he looks when he's sitting on the floor, back straight, head bent at whatever he's doing.

I love how, when he has his back to me, he looks around to his left and smiles at me, then to his right and smiles, and continues to do this till something else catches his attention lol!

I love how he smiles at himself in the mirror.

I love how he tries to kiss every now and then with a big wide open bird mouth to the cheek!

This all makes me want to go upstairs and wake him up! lol

milky_mama 04-17-2008 02:37 PM

Love this thread! Good idea Katrinka!

I love her teeny tiny hands and feets, fingers and toes.
I love her chubs, especially around her wrists.
I love the way she looks at her big sister, with big smiles and coos.
I love the way she smiles at me in the morning.
I love how relaxed and happy she gets after a long nursing session.
I love all of her little squeaky noises.
I love the way she smells.
I love wearing her and having her right next to my heart.
I love her super soft baby hair.

There are plenty cute things about the snortlepig.

I love how she pops off the breast to mutter something and then goes back to drinking.
I love how she opens her mouth into a big wide triangle and concentrates when she's trying to sneeze, and the pathetically bereft look she gets if the sneeze disappears at the last minute.
I love how she sometimes 'woodpeckers' the milks by bashing her head repeatedly against them--we have a lot of fun theorising as to what the heck she's trying to accomplish.
I love how when she's nearly finished drinking, she'll sort of smile and lick me and mumble the milks around in her mouth, just blissing out.
I love how she stretches and arches her back and sticks her head and bottom out when she wakes up. She looks so human when she wakes up--not like a baby, just like any old small-sized person doing her own thing. It's hard to explain--DH put it by saying 'You expect her to be more rational than she is, when she wakes up'. Anyway it's gorgeous.
I love her giant cloth-diapered bottom!

And I love all the regular newborn stuff--the tiny hands, the soft hair, the fat cheeks and round tummy, the drunk look after milks. And I love how sappy DH gets around her! He was late to work this morning because he was watching her sleep in our bed, with this little smile on his face... I'm a lucky woman.

Oh gosh there are so many things! Currently what comes to mind...

~The way she wrinkles her face up when she's happy
~The intense look in her eyes when she nurses first thing in the morning like she's starving even though she's been nursing all night
~ The random squawks she makes
~The way she swims around in the bathtub while I hold her head
~her chunky little face
~the surprised look she has after she burps

Calvin is so wonderful.
I love his serious nature. His eyebrows are very prominent, and make him look very curious and purposeful when he examines our faces.
He loves having his chin and nose touched. He smiles so big and acts like he is going to chomp your finger if you get it too close to his mouth.
He is a total cuddle-bug, just like my oldest son.
I love the way he peeks up at my face as I carry him in the Beco carrier. I am the center of his world, and I love it!
I love how big he is. He is growing very fast, and it is wonderful to have so much baby to hold on to.
I think the way he smiles at his big brother is priceless.
I love the way he looks up at me when he has a belly full of mama milk, cream dripping down his chin, with utter satisfaction (again, his beautiful eyebrows adding so much flavor to his expressions).
I love his cooing, and his high pitched little "ooo" when he needs to sneeze, but it won't come out.
I think his man-sized burps and farts are AMAZING!
This little guy is such a sweet boy. I am totally in .

kristenyostdc 04-28-2008 09:19 AM

I love Natalies extremly large chubby cheeks.
I love the way she is starting to "talk" to us.
I love her huge and wonderful smile!
I love the way her arms and legs are getting so chunky.
I love the way she snuggles up next to me in bed.
I love that her daddy and siblings love her so much!
I love that she still loves to snuggle so much.
I love the way she falls asleep with her arms over her head and her legs straight out.

I could go on and on and on!! I am just so in love with her!

New_Natural_Mom 04-28-2008 09:34 AM

when he yawns
when he stretches
when he looks around discovering the world
when he sleeps on daddy's chest
when he sleeps period.

her nose
