Like every other mom in the world I too waited nine months for my daughter and certainly, it was worth the wait. There was sky full of feelings running through me when I took her in my arms for the first time. I had mixed feelings – thrilled, overwhelmed, anxious, jumpy (well physically couldn’t because I had a C-Sec) tired and confused at the same time. Everything about her was worth all the pain. Every tiny activity performed by this miniature melted my heart time after time, days after days, weeks after weeks & months after months. Here are 14 things which I absolutely treasure about last fourteen months:
1. The baby button eyes
It was a bit of heaven the way she looked at me for the very first time. Those button eyes were and are always filled with laughter and playfulness.
2. The tiny-winy everything
Nobody can ever get over how cute their hands, fingers & noses are. The way they yawn…. Oooo …Basically, every part of your baby takes your breath away.
3.The fresh fragrance
Research shows that “smell of a newborn lightens up the pleasure and love centers of your brain”. Even if you don’t bathe them a baby for a day, the way they smell will still be the most amusing fragrance to you.
4.The sugary smile
You can wait & watch them for hours doing absolutely nothing. And then a sudden smile to their faces can be the one thing that makes your world a whole lot better.
5. The smooth flawless skin
This definitely increases the number of cuddles and kisses.
6.The sleeping beauty
Who doesn’t likes a sleeping baby??? Ask a mother the same question and see their responses.All you’d ever want to do is watch them sleep. Just watching your child sleep, yawn, and stretch is enough entertainment for you.
7. The funny noises
It’s funny how we soon begin talking the baby talk once left alone with an infant.The moaning, groaning, sigh, burping and other strange noises(sometimes farting included …that too in front of a group of people standing and discussing something serious).
8. The bouncy bottom
My favorite lovable feature is their super soft, cute and bouncy bums.
9. The drama queen
The unique expression and reaction to everything, my god, it will take your heart away. The faces they make, frown, grin, tantrums and react to everything.
10.The baby shopping
Shopping for your baby starting from their toys to clothes is the most satisfying shopping experience ever.Some of the clothes are a treat to the eyes.
11. The First crawl & First walk
No words can beautifully explain your baby’s first crawl and later the first ever walk.
12.The First word
Although there are lots of miles stones in the babies first year nothing can beat the first word. Ira’s first word was “ba-ba”
13. The responding
The waving, dancing to the music, exploring, gesturing yes-no, peek-a-boo, grabbing everything, the perfect little pecks (or as we say it haaaabbbaaa) etc
14. The perfect little thing
Basically, you will love how perfect everything about your baby is. It is just a blessing to be around your baby.
