Moments like these are ones I hope to never forget.
Moments that actually happened months ago…but they are important enough for me to weblog about here.
Moments that seem like forever ago…and one day will probably feel like just yesterday.
Will is a horrible night time sleeper. He likes to go to bed late and wake up early.
But naps? Totally a different story. He’s a napper. like if napping were blogging, he’d be Dooce…with a side of Pioneer Woman…and a dash of YHL. Yup, he’s that good.
And when he wakes up, 9 outta 10 times, he is like this:
Oh and did I mention that he likes me? Yeah…can’t get enough of whoever goes to get him. Jeremy & I have actually fought over who gets Will after the nap because it is guaranteed hugs and kisses.
And the other 10 percent of the time, he is just chillaxin’ in his crib.
Talking or laying down playing with his paci or just putting his feet up.
I must admit, it almost makes up for the nightly 1 am screamfests.
He really likes to stand on things…like the bumper or the toys or whatever. He also likes to toss everything that is in the crib out.
Sorry for the crazy colors in these photos. The walls are horrible for photography. They turned my baby into a strawbaby.
Note the imposter pacifier. That worked for all of ten seconds before he realized it’s not his real paci and he threw it down the open air conditioning vent. Yup…there’s probably a slew of toys down there ruining something.
Oh and sometimes…on a very rare occasion…
sometimes he looks so content with being in his crib that I do something crazy.
Yeah…I get in there too. Jeremy doesn’t approve…he thinks that I’ll break the bed. I don’t quite know how to take that.
But Will loves it.
On a separate note, there are no boobs in this photo…but two different areas that look ‘chestie’…the legs could definitely pass for Dolly Parton.
Speaking of boobs, Will’s lovie has these little tucked corners we call ‘nips’. I don’t know how that started exactly…but Will finds great comfort in taking the little nips and putting them up to his eyes and forehead and nose. Here’s a rare photo of him doing just that. He’s such a weird0. And no, I never put my nips up to his eyes, forehead or nose…so get that out of your mind pervert 🙂
Did I mention that Will likes me in there with him?
Because he does. He laughs and cuddles and shows me everything. Kinda like he’s giving me a tour of his crib.
We have a grand time…
I think he feels very in charge in there…like it’s his place and I’m a guest.
Oh and he stands on me.
And lays on me. He hardly ever does that out of the crib…so of course, I love it.
Check out those walls…crazy. Almost as crazy as taking a picture inside the crib…without the baby.
When Will gets out of the crib, he likes to play with the fan.
Again…my kid is odd.
Not because he likes to play with the fan…but because he only likes to press the center circle.
He has no interest in touching anything else on the fan except for this little plastic center that does absolutely nothing.
Weirdo. And yes, I know how to pack a finger on ice if it gets chopped off…so don’t worry your pretty little head.
So that’s it. Just some fun little mom-ents that are totally Will.
There are more – like the five minute hug in the bathtub the first time we turned on the bubbles, and the rocking back and forth at night when he first gripped my neck and the morning Jeremy brought him into bed and Will spontaneously kissed me like ten times. Such sweetness. Like memory nectar.
It’s those moments that definitely make the lack of sleep a little more manageable, don’t they? My answer is absolutely. I wouldn’t remember those extra minutes in bed anyway 🙂
