“James is getting a bit frustrated shut up here, he tries not to show it but I can tell – also, Dumbledore’s still got his Invisibility Cloak, so no chance of little excursions. If you could visit, it would cheer him up so much.” Lily’s letter to Sirius. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows
Remus was absolutely terrified of holding Harry and avoided it at all costs. Once he purposely spilled hot coffee on his arm just so he could leave the room when Lily was trying to find somebody to hold Harry.
Harry cried the first time Sirius held him. Sirius proceeded to freak out because he thought Harry didn’t like him and nearly cried.
Lily and James once walked in on Sirius singing a very disturbing song about feeding naughty babies to hippogriffs. He didn’t understand. His mother sang it to him.
Harry’s first word was either ‘mummy’ or ‘moony’. Lily and Remus didn’t speak for a day or so.
The first night Sirius and Remus babysat Harry by themselves Sirius accidentally covered Harry’s crib with dog hair.
Harry had a stuffed wolf, rat, dog and stag.
The Potter’s cat would sit on a chair and watch over Harry as he slept.
Harry would always grab hair. It didn’t matter who. if their hair was in reach. it was yanked.
Harry actually had perfect eyesight as a baby. It wasn’t until after so many years spending time in the dark cupboard that his eyesight became bad.
For the first month that Harry was home Lily was worried because he never cried during the night until one night she woke up to find out that James would sneak into the nursery every night and watch Harry sleep and took care of him before Lily would wake up.
