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.

carli said...

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 :)

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.

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

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

pistolsnprincesses said...

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.

Redheaded Daybook said...

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!"
