Oh, my Jude. He’s my biggest baby with the biggest heart. I should clarify big: he was born two weeks early, weighing 8.3 lbs (he would have been over a whopping 9 if he went full term!), and he arrived hungry. And is still always hungry. For the first year of his life, he was in the 100+ percentile for height AND weight Big. He has now tapered off to the 97th for height and 50th for weight, but he’s still a big, solid fella. And fullllll of energy. I used to joke that I felt like I was dressing a baby rhinoceros when he was little because he was so hard to keep still – even to quickly change a diaper, or dress him. He’s my human tornado! And he is a Mama’s Boy through and through. He’s always wrapping his arms around me, telling me he loves me, that he wishes he could marry me one day. He always wants to buy me something beautiful (usually, sparkly shoes, dress, and matching hairband), and I love how his face lights up when he describes what he wants to buy for me! He’s a simple, sensitive little guy, that’s very easy to please, very easy to love, and that is certain that he’s my “favorite.” Every now and then, he’ll give me a knowing, confident look, and say, “I’m your favorite, aren’t I, Mama?” And his look says, You don’t have to say anything, I know. Just kills me. Every time.
I honestly don’t have “favorites,” but I fiercely love that boy – love the way he loves, admire his seemingly innate and perpetual gratefulness, his eagerness to make other people comfortable and happy, and how kind and protective he is of his siblings. He reminds me so much of my own incredible big brother, Chris, and I couldn’t be more proud of this simple, yet profound distinction.
I am so very honored and blessed to be his mama.
I live for that dimple, and I love that he thinks he’s my favorite. I hope they all do.
