What I love best about newborns:

When milk dribbles down their face as they peacefully drift off to sleep

The faces they make while pooping/burping

The incredibly loud noises they are capable of making while sleeping

The way the scrunch up their arms and legs into you like they are trying to get back to the position they were in utero

Baby smell and soft baby skin

Aw the baby Smells. I wish you could save scents. I even like the breastfed baby's poop smell. It's all part of the experience! And I love how teeny tiny and light they are. I wish you could save that too. Make a doll or something to capture how small they are, how they feel to hold and how they smell.sticky.gif

Ditto, ditto!


And to add: their big poofy butts in diapers and those dozy smiles maybe cuz of gas or peeing but lovely nonetheless!


(Edited to add this picture I caught one of those gassy smiles :)

I love how mushy and floppy they are and how they flail their arms and legs about. I also love how they curl into little balls when they sleep on your chest.
