Hello Little Man

The newborn smell is definitely gone. All I smell these days is Aaron's sweaty head. And its ALWAYS sweaty from him running around. His smell as a whole has changed...I hate to say it but apart from the few minutes immediately after a bath, he smells.....a little like saliva but I've checked...no drool coming out.

The soles of his feet are no longer soft and smooth. His heels aren't rounded. He's getting little boy feet with thicker skin.

His hands too. I used to love putting them to my face to feel his soft baby skin. He now puts his hands to my face but they are becoming rough like little kids hands.


Instead of that funny toothless grin he gave us for so many months. We now have a beautiful smile that shows almost a full set of teeth.

You made similar comments about your brother's smell when he was young!

I wish you wouldn't have written this...now I have to think about how little time I have left to enjoy Leya as an adorable baby before she becomes an annoying toddler, then an insufferable teenager. Sigh...

He is so cute and it is sad to see them grow out of babyhood - but it is so fun too!!! Have a good day with your sweet little boy. See ya. Kellan

My baby Aaron is in college, has a girlfriend and is a couple of inches taller than my 6'2" (1.85 meters).
