+ Your thin, but long, swoopy hair and how light it is.
+ The “warning laugh.” You may be laughing now, but it’s going to turn bad in a minute.
+ The sweet way you lay your head on my shoulder when someone new is talking to you. Shy boy.
+ How you love to go on solo runs with me and just take it all in.
+ The singing. I love your little voice.
+ The way you never want to stop moving. You always want to be watching something.
+ How independent you already are.
+ Yet, how much you want me nearby all the time.
+ The way you throw yourself into my arms when someone else has been holding you for a while.
+ How happy and content you are when you’re playing with someone else, but the minute you see me the “warning laugh” emerges.
+ How happy and content you are.
+ The whispy hairs on the back of your head.
+ How much food you put away. So much food.
+ The way you love me. And how much I love you. So much it almost hurts.
