This little guy melts my heart. He is such a sweet baby, I still can't get over it. I really must have been good to get 2 beautiful healthy boys.
Niccolò is so different from his brother in many ways.
He is already clapping his little hands (batta la manina). He even tries to wave at you in his own little backwards way. He feet are extensions of his hands. I have never seen a baby use his feet the way he does to get things closer to him. He also has a reach on him you couldn't believe. If he wants something he finds a way to get it. Francesco never did that, probably cause I always had everything at his reach and jumped to his ever beck and call.
He loves the Jumper Roo and really can get some height in there. The little Leap Frog learning drum is his favorite toy, I hope he get his Daddy's musical talent. Mango are his favorite fruit, he has exotic taste for a little one. Francesco liked the jumper but not with the enthusiasm that he has and Francesco was the Banana Baby (he was our monkey).
He thinks his big brother is the best thing in the world. The look on his face when Francesco plays with him is priceless, it pure utter joy. I get all tearing eyed just think about it. I pray they continue to appreciate each other as they grow.
With the Thanksgiving Holiday approaching I felt the need to write about one of my most precious gifts that I am most thankful for.
