I have a few friends who have said they don't love the baby phase. They love their kids, but they enjoy them more once they're bigger and can do more.
I was starting to think I fell into this category myself. When Lil Major was fussy all the time and waking up at all hours of the night, I was tired and frustrated and I thought I'd enjoy him more if he was bigger.
I CHANGED MY MIND!
I can not believe how much I love this little boy. I can't stop kissing and hugging and loving and ABSORBING him. (Again, more things I never thought I'd get into). Granted, he's sleeping through the night better, I can usually tell why he's fussing and do something to fix it, and he just gets cuter every day. All that helps.
But, I'm LOVING the baby phase. He's more fun now than a couple months ago...he laughs and smiles and reaches and makes the cutest slurping noises as he sucks on his fist or fingers or whatever is close by. He's getting that baby pudgy look to him, and even though it's beginning to be a daily occurrence of him pooping all over me, him and the couch...I still love him more and more every minute of every day.
His daddy told him the other night, "Lil Major - we love you more than you love us." Oh, how sweet to hear my macho hubby tell our son that he loves him.
I'm SO dreading starting my job in 2 weeks. How will I ever survive 8 hours away from him???
