Learning to Fly

by statia on September 19, 2008

The Mini had a follow up yesterday with his “voodoo” doctor, and she’s more than pleased with his progress.  After a solid week of hell, it was nice to have that sort of information.  Not that it wasn’t information that I didn’t already know.

Every day that goes by, I feel like I know my son a little more than I did the day before.  Not that I didn’t know his nuances, but since he’s been born, I’ve been eager to know his personality.  I firmly believe that he spent a good portion of his life, feeling like complete shit, preventing us from getting to know who he really is.   The doctor commented on him looking happy, and for once, I really believe that he’s truly happy.  He feels better, what’s not to be happy about?   I watch him with amazement as he comes over and asks for things.  I (try not to, but my poker face sucks) laugh when I hear him mimmic my stern “NO DON’T BITE, that really hurts!”  Complete with the face and intonation.   I melt when he gives me a hug after I’ve told him not to do something.  Or when he comes up and does the verse of wheels on the bus where I tell him I love him, and then climbs in my lap.   I love to watch him point at EVERYTHING now, and say “DAT!”

I love how small and innocent he still looks outside in the big world.  And I’m holding onto it with every thing that I have.

I forget you’re here now with this new fancy layout and title.

This is such an exciting age, these little buggers are hilarious sometimes. I like that The Mini mocks you. It’s only right. Well done kid.

I’m sorry it was a rough week. But it is so rewarding to see them do and try new things. Go Mini.

Seriously? I teared up at this a little. Especially that last part. And I’m usually not sappy. Swear.
