Baby Quirks

Each one of us has little quirks, those little mannerisms that we might not even know we do. Babies are no different, and our Little Giant Baby definitely has some. Some quirks actually mean something. Some are just too cute. With that thought in mind, here are a few of our sweet daughter's quirks.
  • She is a noisy eater. I'm sure a lot of babies are like this, but whenever we feed her, she makes noises. I don't really know to describe the noise other than "mmmmmmm," which I assume means she absolutely loves what she's eating.
  • She gets really still... and then... well, it's time to change her diaper. (Note: Baby Girl, this will embarrass you when we tell this story down the road. Please forgive us. It's just so cute.) We will put her on the changing table after her nap and wait. Experience has taught us that it is best to wait a few minutes before changing her diaper. Wait for her to get still. Then wait a few more minutes after that, too.
  • The ear grab. This is one we've just started to notice. As she's feeding, or when she's in our arms or laying on the changing table, she will take her right hand and pull on her right ear. How cute, right? Well, we think that's her saying to us, "You better get me ready for bed soon!" Babies give signs of being ready for bed. Make sure you pick up on these, or else you could have an over-tired baby. And no one likes an over-tired baby.
  • 4:00am smiley. If I wake up at 4:00am, I'm not going to be happy. For Giant Baby, she is smiling and even will try to chat it up with you. In order to keep her semi-asleep, we don't talk back to her, but that smile is soooo sweet.
  • Constant motion. This little girl always seems to have her arms and legs moving, especially her left leg, which I'm not sure ever stops moving. Of course when she's tired, chances are she will be very still, but even while asleep, she wiggles around in her Miracle Blanket.
I'm sure G could add to this list, but these are the first ones that popped into my head. Our sweet girl is certainly unique, and certainly very, very cute.
