+ You learned baby sign language for “milk” which we use for any drink. But you use it whenever you want something.
+ The urgency in which you sign “milk” with both hands when we get close to the swings.
+ How sad you get if we don’t stop at the swings.
+ The serious face you make when we watch videos of Papa.
+ The way your face lights up when we FaceTime with Papa.
+ The midnight feedings. They’re pretty much over now, and I miss them. Just you and me, awake and cuddled up for those few minutes. I kind of miss them.
+ How quick your crawl is.
+ Your extreme fascination with the guitar. And the way you think I can actually play it.
+ Those two bottom teeth and a row of gums.
+ Splashing in the bath tub.
+ Your wave. And your clap.
+ The hugs I get when I pick you up out of your crib after a nap.
+ How squirmy you are when you’re getting a diaper change, unless I give you the sunscreen. Then you hold on to that like it’s your job.
+ The extreme cuddling with Bête, and how his face is always wet from kisses.
+ How much you hate to have your teeth brushed, but love to do it yourself.
