Cuddling with him.
Being the one who soothes him best when he is crying. I feel like he knows I'm his mom.
The times when he'll hold my finger and look me in the eye while I'm feeding him his bottle.

I wish there was an "upvote" button. These are so sweet!
I love that I can't wait for her to wake up in the morning. I'm always checking on her to see if her little eyes are open yet because I'm being deprived of cuddles.
I love feeling her sweet little breaths on my neck when she falls asleep in my arms.
And even though we're losing a lot of sleep at night because of it, I love hearing her "talking" in her sleep. She's such a noisy baby! Lol. Always stretching and moaning and groaning in her sleep.
Ummmm everything? LOL I love the newborn stage.
Skin-to-skin snuggle time, the cute facial expressions he makes, when he scrunches up on my shoulder, the little wheezy humming noise he makes when he sleeps, his pudgy hands, his beautiful eyes. Watching my H snuggle him. Nursing. after nursing a toddler, I had forgotten how wonderful nursing a newborn is.
Oh yeah, the faces she makes in her sleep are absolutely adorable. I also love how she's most comfortable curled up in a ball on my chest to sleep. DD1 is really not into cuddles, so I'm trying to enjoy this phase while it lasts!
And DD1 is really cute, too. She's constantly bringing over a bottle or a pacifier and offering it to DD2 or suggesting we change her diaper or give her something to eat (like spaghetti ;-)). When DD2 is asleep, we have to constantly remind DD1 to stay away from her sister and stop touching her!!
Justinlove:Watching DD1 grow into being a big sister. She has transformed over the past week and it is amazing to watch.
This. DS1 is seriously the BEST big brother any mom could ask for. He is the sweetest, smartest, most protective little man ever! I had worries he would have jealousy issues being that he's been my one and only for 5 years, but he loves his brother - poopy diapers and crying and all. I didn't think I could love him any more than I already did but brining DS2 home - I think my heart about burst!!
I feel like every day I find a new best thing, but lately it's been my little girl's post-nursing milk coma face. I know at this point it's almost certainly just gas, but she passes out cold with this doofy grin on her face:
It makes me feel good that I can make her so content.
