    In the mornings my LO has started to reach up with his hand to touch my face to let me know he has woken up for the day. When he sees me looking at him he gives me a big gummy smile :cloud9: Love it.
    We co-sleep by the way

    Same.
    I used to feel a bit 'purposeless' sometimes, often being a bit bored or having nothing to do, but that never happens now!

    The smiles, the cuddles, knowing i'm the only one who can settle him when his teeth are playing up! Love bathing him, getting him in his pj's, taking him for walks/trips out, showing him off :lol:

    I love the cuddles, smiles, giggles.
    I love how mealtimes are now so interesting and exciting and when he enjoys eating things I have cooked for him it makes me so happy :)
    I love our quiet storytime before bed and the way he flicks the pages excited to get to the next bit!
    I love to watch him sleep :)
    SO many things! x

    Aww thanks for all the lovely answers, love reading through them :cloud9:

    I've only been a mummy for 4 weeks but so far here's what i love about being a mum:

    I love that she's mine and that i made such a wonderful little person :)

    I love the way she makes me laugh all the time just by doing the silliest faces etc.

    I love the way she stretches when she wakes up and does the loudest farts ever.. :haha: has me in creases every time she wakes up lmao! Didn't know such noises could come from such a little person haha!

    I love cuddling her and just looking at her :cloud9:

    I love knowing that she will be in my life forever and look forward to all the great times to come....:cloud9:

    I love watching her grow & change. Each day is something new. (THis also makes me sad - as she is no longer a baby!) Its like she is never the same!

    I love the feeling I get when she accomplishes something - usually something most people dont know about. Like when she could first sleep w/out swaddling, when she could first tolerate her feet being in the bathtub w/out screaming, when she first stuck out her foot for me to put her sock on, etc. Its like inside I do a little victory dance that she figured something out.

    I love how she makes me laugh. Like when she is silly and wants to be chased or tickled. Or when I caught her trying to fit tampons into dixie cups. Or figuring out how to climb into the dishwasher when she thought I wasnt looking.

    I love the feeling that she is my daughter & I am always her mom - that bond that is there & the unconditional love from me & her.

    I love this too :hugs: much nicer than waking up to my DH's face :haha::haha: Alex sleeps between us.

    I also love the strength of the love I feel for my children....if that makes sense. I love having such precious things and I love that they are mine :cloud9:

    I love that she's such a funny little character already. She's like a little old woman and she has me laughing all day. I never ever thought I could feel so much for someone, she's absolutely the best thing that ever happened to me :cloud9:
    I love watching her grow up and helping her to learn new things, and I love how proud I am when she does something for the first time :)

    I love the fact that she is only 7 and a half months old, doesn't know what I'm rambling on about most of the time, can't talk, and depends on me, yet she is already my best friend, my little sidekick. :cloud9:
