One such routine is our "how was your day" conversation. When we get home after I've picked him up from day care, I take him out of his car seat and lay him on my bed. Our bed is pretty high, so I'm able to lean over at the waist right beside him. I tell him about my day while he coos and smiles and laughs.
But the best part is that he always reaches his hand over and touches my hand or arm. That makes me happy.
