"...that's what little boys are made of."
Snakes and snail and puppy dog tails? Nope, that's not what little boys are made of. It's all the kisses and hugs, that makes them full of love.
Sure, there's the messy faces and the stinky diapers. There's the shrills of excitement and the cries of tiredness. There's the glossy eyes at 2 am and the bags under my eyes which make me look like I'm packed up for a long trip. There's the insane amount of dirty bottles, dirty spoons, dirty bowls, dirty little hands, and dirty little faces that result is even more dirty wash cloths.
And then there's the smiles. The great big ones that light up his whole face. And the little smirks of orneriness. And the grins that travel from ear to ear. And my favorite are those ones that show off those pearly whites.
And there's the laughs. The little mini one that he just can keep in. And the funny little chuckles that make you chuckle too. And the coos just because. And the giggles that roll out from been tickled to much.
And there's also the cuddles. The ones when he bonked his head and just need a squeeze. And the ones when he's tired and snuggles into you like it's the best place on earth. And the ones where he quiet slips his arm around your neck and just holds on.
And there's the kisses. The big, mouth-wide-open, baby slobber all over your cheek, kisses. Need I say more?
Yep...that's what little boys are made of. Happy 6 months Liam J. We love you.
