Have I told you lately that I love you…
that there’s no one else above you…
you fill my heart with gladness…
Each time I look at you my heart swells with pride and happiness. I love you so much. I thank my lucky stars.
Now, your waking spells last a bit longer. Sometimes 15 minutes, sometimes an hour.
You’ve now been a steady cycler for sometime now. And lately, you’ve started playing with us. All of us soooo look forward to those precious times with you. And we fight for your attention. Every time you wake up, before you’re even fully awake, we line up to play with you. We each try to get an exclusive with you.. and those 5 minutes are the high light of our day.
As your lucky Mommy, I get the most time with you 😉 I love our times together, just you and me. We talk and we laugh. We gurgle and coo and we smile at each other. We even do high-fives 🙂 Though our vocab is mostly “Aghoo” and “goo” and “aaaha”, we understand each other well 🙂
Feed times are extra special. Its a joy to watch as you feed. The calm, peaceful look on your face (okay, most times) takes my breath away. When you’re done, there’s a look of joyful contentment. Most times after you’re done, you stretch and yawn as if after a long rest. Sometimes, you give me that amazing, happy wide smile… It makes my heart melt. I wait for those moments. Just for those moments.. all the pains, the sleeplessness.. everything .. is worth it.
You’ve learnt all the right expressions to twiddle us around your little fingers. When you’re upset, you’ve learnt to pout. A nice big pout, with raised eye brows. When you want something from us – even just plain attention – you curl your lower lip out and make oh-such-an-irresistable-sad-face and everyone comes running to you. When you’re happy, you smile (duh! ofcourse!) a whole hearted, all knowing, wide grin – not the involuntary smile of the earlier days.
