I know many of you already know how profound this moment is, and some of you are looking forward to it. Wanted to share.
My 19-month-old dd has been saying "aaavv you" (love you) for a few weeks now. The other day, though, I was changing her and she said, "Mama, AAAV you!" with a huge smile and a look of pure adoration on her face.
I felt so humbled. And, grateful. (And, I'll admit, there was a tiny sad flicker--"I hope she'll always feel I'm her mama...")
I have to enter this one into her diary. What a breathtaking sound! It's one of those, "THIS is why I put myself through all this to get here" moments!
You are such an amazing writer. I've asked you many times here if you journal about your boys. I hope so! (And, I hope saying this again doesn't irritate you.)
I love my little book. I don't write in it nearly as often as I had hoped, but if you let go of perfection, and just put down little bits, I think our kids would really cherish seeing these jottings later in life. (I may do this partly due to my age.)
Your vivid renderings of scenes, and your eloquence would be a great gift to your boys.
I do have intentions to write a baby book. I am keeping some notes online but so far they are very minimalist, with the bulk of my tales on either my FB page or on the pink board. I keep intending to go back one day and cut and paste all these things from FB and the pink board to a Word document (haven't done so yet, gah!)
Thanks though. Yes, I think it's the sort of thing that would be cherished.
