+ Your legs and how they kick like crazy when I’m holding you and you see Papa (and visa versa).
+ The magical allure any cord holds.
+ You shaking your head when you dance.
+ How sometimes it just takes too long for Mama to get ready to feed you, so you help yourself to the milk.
+ The way your lips form the word Papa, but your voice hasn’t totally gotten it yet.
+ The dimples in your hands.
+ How swings hold happiness for hours, but leaving them is not fun.
+ The way you look into my eyes at night when we’re sitting in your dark room right before bed.
+ Your genius comedic timing.
+ The weight of your little body when you climb into my lap while I’m reading you a book.
+ How impatient you are at naptime to get the reading started.
+ Your sweet kisses to the prickly porcupine in one of your books.
+ Waking up to find that your head is no longer by mine, but your butt is (and being okay with that).
+ Your sweet little voice and how it gets a little raspy when you’re really trying to say something.
+ The determined look in your eyes when you study my mouth as I teach you new words.
+ Your pure joy to be able to stand up and peek over the couch at Papa after you finish nursing.
