Today I was spending a quiet moment with my son, well let me rephrase that. I was resting and watching him play while he was going about playing a chattering away.
I like to just sit and watch him be creative and see his brain working, I also used to randomly video tape these moments too just to see and have a record of all of his different stages. Now our video camera battery only lasts a few minutes per charge and it's on our list of things to buy eventually (hopefully soon.)
Back to today, I just love how he's to the stage where he pretend plays holding one guy talking to another saying "You want to go play at the park. You do, OK, let's go!" As I sat there watching and letting my mind wander I felt like I could see glimpses of who he will become. Not specifics but just generalities that made me feel all warm and fuzzy inside. He'd get this look in his eyes and I could just see that look on his face when he's a young man.
He found a baby doll that was given me for our soon to be new addition at her baby shower over the weekend and also a bottle. He has carried the baby around for the entire rest of the day feeding her milk, burping and changing her diaper. Now she's in bed with him all tucked in. Hopefully he'll understand when his "baby sister" does join our family she won't be able to sleep in his little bed!!
Another day to treasure!!!
