Ten Great Things About Babies

1. They smell so clean.

2. They have cute little pudgy hands.

3. They smile when they pass wind.

4. Their skin is the softest thing you will ever feel in your life.

5. They can be so relaxed that you have to keep checking they're breathing.

6. You see yourself in another human being.

7. They are infinitely cuddle-able.

8. They make fantastic snuffle-wuffle snonking noises.

9. They look at you like they Know Things.

10. No-one else will ever need you as much as they do.

    Even me who can't stand babies [shhhhh don't tell mine ;-)] found myself reminising with this list.

    For the first time in Dude's 8 months I had him minded yesterday so I could Get Stuff Done. After 4 hours without him, when I went back to collect him, I was struck by how that 'new baby' smell had returned. The smell had never actually left, but because we were together all the time I hadn't really noticed it too much.

    I learned something from this - always stop and smell the roses but most importantly, plant that new baby smell in your memory because it may be gone before you even know it!

Comments make blogging a conversation, rather than mere self-indulgent navel-gazing. Look at that big empty space down there...just waiting for your thoughts.
