this new thing that I love

Wednesday, May 23

These days, when Everett wakes up and wants me to wake up too {a lot of times I'm already awake, but my eyelids just don't give a crap}, he'll push himself up on his arms and tip his head to the side so that his cheek is resting on my chest. And then, once that squishy cheek is nice and comfortable, he'll look up at me and growl. Growl!
Have you ever been growled awake? By a little squishy with huge eyes?

I will tell you, it's an experience that is pretty much never getting one-upped by anything.

Possibly the cutest thing I have ever heard. Ever.
My best friends baby boy does the same thing but he gets angry when you laugh at him. Its so cute that it just makes you laugh harder and him cry louder.

May 23, 2012 8:42 PM

Aw too cute!! What a little character! He sounds so lovely. And good for you, always reflecting on the beautiful things about him each day. What a lovely way to document his childhood and your first foray into motherhood. Love these posts :)

May 23, 2012 8:45 PM

What a little chunk!

May 23, 2012 8:46 PM

hahaha! Only your child, Sydney!

May 23, 2012 8:47 PM

So sweet. I love my little boy alarm clocks too...

May 23, 2012 9:05 PM

How precious! You will cherish that "growl" forever.

May 23, 2012 9:13 PM

That sounds like the sweetest thing! So adorable. :)

May 23, 2012 9:13 PM

Just made me smile :)

May 23, 2012 9:22 PM

Thats probably the sweetest thing I have heard today!

May 23, 2012 9:25 PM

May 23, 2012 9:41 PM

May 23, 2012 9:42 PM


May 23, 2012 9:46 PM

Motherhood with you sounds dreamy! :) can't wait

May 23, 2012 10:07 PM

May 23, 2012 10:44 PM

May 23, 2012 11:02 PM

May 23, 2012 11:33 PM

What a great way to wake up every day! You're one lucky mama.

Btw, he gets more beautiful every day, he's gonna break some heart one day :-)

May 24, 2012 12:02 AM

Glad I'm not the only one with a six month old that sleeps in Mama's bed! :) those sweet wake up calls really are the best though! How can you even wake up grumpy?!

I have no idea what it feels like, but it sounds so cute and amazing! :D

May 24, 2012 4:40 AM

Eli has just started growling too. Maybe it's a six-ish months thing? I thought he was mad. Maybe he just wants me to play with him.

May 24, 2012 6:05 AM

Pleassssse try to get it on video :)

May 24, 2012 6:17 AM

Oh this post is far too cute!

my son was big on growling at about 8 months old! he would always scare the other babies! haha

May 24, 2012 9:51 AM

hahaha! That's great! I want to be woken up that way one day!

May 24, 2012 9:53 AM

So silly, I wonder where he learned how to do that. You should try to catch it on video one day.

May 24, 2012 9:55 AM

You're so lucky! I bet his growl is the most delicious way to be woken up!

May 24, 2012 10:03 AM

very sweet! enjoy every minute with little mr. e. you'll have to bring him back to rexburg for a visit sometime!

May 24, 2012 10:29 AM

my daughter started to do the same, SO SWEET :)

May 24, 2012 11:34 AM

My little man(1yearold) woke up at five and wouldn't go back to sleep until six, but the whole time he just wanted to nuzzle in my neck and sing to me so I was fine with that arrangement.

May 24, 2012 11:38 AM

oh i love the growl waking! its seriously one of the best ways to wake up.

May 24, 2012 11:45 AM

That's precious! That would make waking up so much easier and so happy! :)

May 24, 2012 12:05 PM

Walker also does the growling thing and I love it!!

May 24, 2012 12:09 PM

That's so cute! yes I have been growled at before by my neice Natalie{she was 5 months at the time} I had her for new years and we went to sleep right after midnight the next morning I was up to these cute little grunts and growls and turned up to be her on me and putting her hands on my eye lids! I love my little Princess

{Happy with Sprinkles}


May 24, 2012 12:33 PM

Oh that is priceless!! He's such a cutie pie!

Absolutely adorable. My lil' buddy is about the same age as Everett and your posts about him make me giggle as I am reminded of some of the cute little personality quirks of my baby. Is there just anything better than this????

May 24, 2012 5:18 PM

Rachel Nicole @ Summer Breeze

May 25, 2012 6:14 PM

Haha! No growls from this little man - he has always preferred to poke/smack you repeatedly if you're slow to wake. ;)It's his version of "come on guys! The day has begun!"

May 28, 2012 4:52 PM

i take care of a baby that growls. stinkin precious.

May 29, 2012 8:33 PM
