I just revisited photos from Xavi’s birth a little while ago as I updated the birth story post. (The photos weren’t showing up.)
I kept thinking, he was so tiny. August doesn’t seem that long ago, but when I look at the pictures it seems like I’m looking at a different baby boy. The matted full head of hair has turned into big, gorgeous, curls. The full lips now break open frequently in to a wide gummy grin and actual sounds like “guh” and “dah” come out. The foot that was barely longer than a finger now goes into his mouth — as does everything else that fits in to his little hands. And the laughter… it’s awesome. Sean and I do all sorts of silly things to get him to keep laughing.
If Xavi was born on his due date, he’d be 31 weeks old today.
