I pretty much love everything about babies, always have. But I am a sucker for their squishy, smoochy lips, especially right after they've eaten and when they are sleeping. I am a kissy mom in general, as I've previously confessed, but I cannot resist Ben's itty-bitty baby lips. That little indent above his top lip is also yummy.
Baby thighs are a close runner up for favorite baby part. Ben is still filling out, and it remains to be seen whether he will achieve Sabrina and Max's level of thigh pudge. Their rolls had rolls.
While I'm on the topic I also love baby lashes. Ben barely had any fringe when he was born and as the weeks went by, I saw them grow in. Boys always get the best lashes.
And, wait, I'm kind of obssesed with Ben's little button nose as well. When I first saw it in an ultrasound it looked abnormally wide and I said something to the technician who noted that it was both filled with fluid and smooshed and I should stop being a neurotic pregnant woman. (She didn't actually say that last part, but I know she was thinking it.)
I will stop now and not even gush about his cheeks, rubber-band wrists, toes, fingers, chins, pot belly or his little naked butt when I take him out of the bath. Oh, and the gigantic bald spot on the back of his head that makes him look like a little old man. And, almost forgot, the back of his neck. There are rolls there, too.
Now that I have mentioned my favorite baby parts, which is to say all the parts, what are yours?
