Win - 13 Weeks
I’m pretty sure Win is the most kissed on baby ever. I wear him in the wrap most of the day, so his little, sweet-smelling, fuzzy head is right there at lip level. Then there’s Eleanor, who smothers him with kisses whenever she gets the opportunity. I know he needs a bath when his head starts to smell like someone licked him. What can I say? He is very loved.
Since discovering his hands he is starting to sooth himself by sucking on his fingers and fist. Eleanor never really did that. She enjoyed chewing on them, but only ever wanted to nurse for that sort of comfort. It makes me wonder if he will be a thumb suckers. Time will tell!
Win Is getting to be so sociable. I can’t remember if Eleanor was like that at his age (I need to go back through my blog archive and check), or if it is at all unusual, but it’s really fun. He loves to have one-on-one attention, to be able to lock eyes and babble with someone. He really likes diaper changes because it affords him the chance to have a conversation of “ah-goos” and “hoos.” As I already mentioned, I wear him for a large portion of the day, but he gets into playful moods now where he wants to be able to see my face and interact with me. I love to hear his voice and watch his intent facial expression. It makes me anxious for the day that he is able to actually talk. That will be so fun. But of course I’m in no rush for him to grow up. I’d keep him just the way he is right now forever if I could, my darling little 13 week old.
