Whenever he doesn't have his binkie in his mouth, he sucks on his fist. Right now, he's not partial to the right or left, just as long as he has one in his mouth. His thumbs aren't held prisoner by his other fingers anymore, so sometimes they find their way in his mouth, but as of now, he prefers his entire fist. Regardless, he sure does go to town as he sucks on it. He's loved sucking on his fists, since he was in utero. Old habits die hard!
(That's a little scratch on Kimble's nose from his nails, that always need clipping.)
Kimble wakes up everymorning like clockwork, at 6:30am. He wants to eat, then he wants to interact for a while. He coos and coos and watches me...waiting for a response. When I say "hi" he smiles big, kicks his legs, waves his arms, and says "hi" back. Really, it does sound like he's saying "hi". He's so cute. We take turns like this, cooing back and forth for a while, then we go wake up the kids to get ready for school.
Kimble loves taking baths with me at night. He likes to float and kick his legs and he just has a great time in the water. When it's time for bed, he likes to nuzzle against me and sleep. If I'm lying down next to him in our bed (which is where he sleeps), and if I'm not close enough to him, he tries to squirm his body towards me. It's really sweet. He loves his momma! He also loves to eat. This boy nurses about 7 times throughout the night. I don't complain. We sleep well next to each other, so I don't feel so tired, even feeding him so many times through the night. He's gaining weight (last week he was 13.5 lbs) and has lots of chubby rolls to show for it. He is a perfectly healthy baby, and for that we are very thankful.
Not to be outdone by his partiality for his momma, Kimble loves getting snuggles from Daddy as well...and from his big sister, who is always ready to greet him with a kiss.
