Do you have any special rituals you engage in with your little one?

For example, we do this thing called "baby slams" which them turns into "[their name] slams". It's at bed time and my husband does it. With a baby (not infant age, but younger than 1), he just pretends to body slam them and says "baby slams!!!" and the baby laughs (at least our first 3 kids thought it was hilarious). With the older kids, we do it at bedtime and my husband picks them up and "slams" them down onto the bed.

When I was growing up, we did morning cuddles a lot, which my kids seem to like, too (climbing in mom's bed after you wake up to cuddle for a bit before getting up for the day).
