The Best Things About Babies

The Absolute Best Thing About a Baby!

There's just something about a baby! Parents can learn a lot from the wee creatures so I asked Lil's Twitter and Facebook mamas to tell me the best thing about infants. Here's what they had to say:

  • The love you feel for them is such a different love to anything you have felt before! — @clj73
  • When they lay their head on your shoulder and move their head side to side, that little nuzzle. When they streeeeetch and look like turtles coming out of their shells. Baby smells (lotion). Everything else! — Jennifer B.
  • That he is all mine! — Marie C.
  • The soft sweet smelling skin! — Aimee B.
  • Their laugh and smile and cuddling with them. — Tiffany F.
  • The best thing about a baby is the way they look at the world, full of wonder, awe, and appreciation.—@MultitaskMumma
  • Naptime! — Julia S.
  • When they smile at you. It melts my heart! — Lauren B.
  • The way they stare at you. The smile they give when they see you, the coos, their first words, and seeing them trying to maneuver. — Tiffany C.
  • Watching them discover. My 4-month-old just discovered that if he lifts his arm high enough he can see his own hand...and he waves at himself and coos! Too cute. — Becci D.
  • Everything! — Mary M.
