May Day with Baby Matteo.

We brought little Matteo home just in time for May Day.  In the morning, Mamma got some pretty spring cuttings from the yard and baby got a new pair of tiny yellow booties {he wasn't crazy about them}.

{At 10.59 am, we celebrated his 4 day birthday.}

We enjoyed a delicious spring lunch with grilled panini, nonna's homemade soup and a cucumber salad.

In the afternoon, there was a little entertainment...

Before bed, a goodnight story...

We have had so much fun getting to know our baby better over the last couple of days.  Here are some things we have learned so far:

Baby Matteo likes:

1.  Eating
2.  Sleeping during the day
3.  Being snuggled
4.  Having his head rubbed

Baby Matteo doesn't like:

1.  Having his diaper changed
2.  Having his outfit changed
3.  Sleeping at night
4.  Cold hands

He is a very sweet and patient baby.  He never cries without an obvious reason.  He loves to snuggle and he smiles a lot in his sleep.  He is perfect.

Some more pics {he is our new favorite subject}...
