Remember This Always
I will never tire of the way Baby J. will periodically stop nursing and look up at me intently, as if memorizing my face. There is a searching quality to his gaze, like he's trying to figure me out. (Good luck, kid!) It is priceless and sweet and makes me tear up with happiness. There is absolutely nothing like this kid. I am so in love with him.
I will also never tire of this face (my good friend and rabid Philadelphia sports fan Jon sent him this bib:)
Or this one:
He is my heart.
Apparently he is also always in his jumper. I do let him out occasionally.
