|"Mommy, I think you should wear this gloss today!"|
Though I look back at posts and videos from when Ayden was a newborn and sometimes miss the sweetness of it all, I am also loving the little person that Ayden is becoming. He is starting to communicate likes and dislikes. He reaches his cute little hands up when he wants to be picked up. He initiates games and repeats sounds back and forth with us. He is starting to give "kisses" spontaneously and seeks comfort from us when he is hurt.
I often find myself admiring his fuzzy head. When he was a newborn, he had a lot of fuzz. He had fuzz on his head, on his cheeks and across his back. He ended up shedding it all, as most newborns do, and I missed all the fuzz. Over the past few weeks, the hair on his head has really started to come in again and it is just as cute and fuzzy as I remember it being when he was a tiny newborn.
It is much thicker than you notice at first glance because it is BLONDE. We never would have guessed that we'd have a blonde haired, blue eyed baby. I'm pretty sure his hair will darken over time but still, never would have guessed...
Ayden has grown out of the comfort of nursing pillows. I still used one when we were at home because I enjoy being hands free. He's big enough now to rest in my lap and still be able to reach. He is actually quite fidgety when he nurses and will even stand while still latched on and the pillow made it worse. I used to read or mess around on my phone while he would nurse and now I have to put everything down and focus on him and keeping him situated so that I don't get frustrated. It has been a blessing in disguise, though, because without my phone in my face I spend more time stroking his fuzzy head, singing quietly to him, and looking into his big, blue eyes in an attempt to keep him still enough to fall asleep. It is actually quite wonderful.
