I really like watching Marlo sleep in, yes, a really creepy way. I can’t help it. She’s a very sweet sleeper. Sometimes she’s a really funny sleeper. I just gotta get a fix every single day. A lot of the problem may be that, perhaps, the very last word you would use to describer her awake is “serene”. She hasn’t fallen asleep in our arms since she was around 3 months old. We can never have just plain cuddle time unless it’s feeding time. So sometimes I just want to gaze at those relaxed chubby cheeks with a little drool puddling in the corner of her mouth. It can be very satisfying.
Her laughter can be just as satisfying. We’re sure lucky that she has a fantastic sense of humor. She finds puppies, peek-a-boo, and mommy falling hilarious. She loves getting tickled. In fact, her newest thing is “accidentally” walking her belly into my toes when they hang over the ottoman and then throwing her head back in a desperate laugh like all this tickling is just too much! She is also a fan of kissy attacks, thank goodness because sometimes they’re impossible to resist.
