So it’s not like he does it a lot, but he definitely does it more freely than the undeveloped S1 version of himself would have you think. He cries every year on his mom’s birthday because he loves her so much and every year he’s more and more grateful for the sacrifices she had to make after Roger left to keep them both afloat. He cries (privately, and then later, with Amy) every time he’s working a child-related case and ends up being too late. He cries for three days after being moved to Florida for witness protection, and again that last night when he’s in the hospital and the realization that he gets to go home with Amy tomorrow fully hits. He’s going to cry four times on his wedding day - once when Charles walks into the dressing room and promptly bursts into tears, again when Holt claps him on the back before leading the charge into the wedding venue, again when those doors open up and he sees Amy wearing a white dress and a nervous, radiant grin, and one more time when he dances with his mom at the reception. And he cries when both of his kids are born, right after he cuts the umbilical chord up until the nurse carefully places a tiny screaming bundle in his arms.
