Jacob cries, and we come running to decipher his sounds and try to figure out what he wants. I mean, it could only be one of a few things (ok, sometimes it could be a combination of multiple things). Either he is hungry, needs a diaper change, has gas, or is otherwise uncomfortable. Despite how demanding our little man is, we love him so much. His little sounds are so cute. His laugh makes us smile. I could stare into his eyes forever — especially when he is just staring at you.

The little things crack us up too. Sometimes he toots so hard that it scares him. Sometimes, I think that he will lift off like a rocket and go into orbit. Sometimes his mom and I just stare at him in amazement after a toot and say, “Wow, that was really impressive.”

Then there are the times, like today, when he lies asleep on my shoulder with his little mouth just a bit open. It is the cutest thing. And then when he is in a really good mood and laughing and trying to speak, but pretty much gibberish comes out — now THAT is adorable. We can’t wait for his first words. So far we have only gotten “hi” when we play with him and occasionally an “ow” after a sneeze. By the way, even his sneezes are adorable.

When mommy lifts him, he stretches his arms out above his head and she says, “Superman!”

This morning, I was changing him after he spit up on his onesie. As soon as I get his new onesie on, he spits up on that too and then starts to laugh. I think he is toying with me.

All of these little things make him who he is and we love him so much. I look at his little face each night after he has fallen asleep and think that it is one of the most beautiful sights I have ever seen. We are truly blessed to have him in our lives and are very thankful.
