Every once in a while it's good to take inventory of these things. Because kids, and even us grown adults, change so much I find that if I don't reflect on what makes me squee every once in a while, I forget that it was ever a favorite thing.
The way he says "Round and Round" when he sings the Wheels on the Bus song.
His expression "Where'd ___ go?" because he uses it properly and also to mean 'someone has my toy' and also 'I'm hiding something from you and you should play with me to find it."
The fact that he puts his shoes on by himself.
He freely gives out hugs and kisses to Daddy, me and little brother Henry.
The way he gives me the side-eye.
When he squeaks and squawks in his sleep.
His determination to practice head control at less-than-perfect times.
The way he tries to smile.
He's a good husband.
He makes delicious food off-the-cuff.
He's very, very handy.
When he's trying to listen (instead of trying to ignore me) he's a really good listener, which also makes him a great conversationalist.
Here's a random thing: I think I'm giving up meat. (Not fish... I'm not crazy; fish is delicious!) But Jack doesn't really like meat, and lately I find that I feel yucky when I eat it (during, not after... because I'm thinking about what it used to be.... ack!). I don't know when this official change will occur, and I will make exceptions for eating at other people's houses because I don't want to be rude and be all "I don't eat that." But I'm thinking that meat might no longer play a role in our home-cooked meals. Matt can eat whatever he wants... I'm just hoping that he'll be willing to make Emily & Jack friendly options.
