Tummy time isn't so bad anymore...


Today was a first. Bennett laid, willingly, and awake, on my chest with his head under my chin for a full 7 minutes. This is 7 minutes more than he has ever done that before. He has NEVER wanted to snuggle--he always looks around at the room and will do everything he can to keep his head from touching you. It always made me a little sad, but I was getting used to the fact that he just wasn't a snuggly baby.

Now I think I appreciate it even more. I rubbed his back while he laid there, hoping to make him like it so much that he will do it again someday. Here's hoping.

I have to say one of my favorite things about Etta is that she is one snuggalishous baby! I love when she is laying on my chest and I can rub my chin on the top of her head because her hair is so soft.

Aww so cute! I fear our baby won't be snuggly... I will probably cry if he's not just because I love snuggling, so here's to me hoping yours stays snuggly and that mine comes out a snuggler! :)

I hear boys are just not cuddly. You will have to wait till you have a girl. Our boy is the same way. He just wants to look around.
