It's just amazing to me how Baby Gage's little mind is working & his speech is improving every day. He is able to express himself better....sometimes describing his surroundings....telling me what he wants, and you can just see his little mind working, trying to express himself.
He's a fan of that "new car" smell. I was loading him in the car yesterday morning. (Oh yeah, Car #2 is officially home, and officially MINE!) Anyway, as I was putting him in his seat, he said, "Smells like ah da lotion. Like ah da lotion in my nose. Smell ah da lotion in my nose." I asked if he liked that smell, and he said, "mmmm-hmmmmm."
So cute. I'm not sure where all the extra "ah" & "da" sounds come from....But, it's so cute to hear him.
Then last night---we were laying on the couch. He was at one end, and I was at the other. He reached down & took my hand & said, "Mommy pet you?" He wanted me to rub him! When he's taking his milk, I usually rub his little head, and chest, and back, and legs...okay, I just lightly rub him all over! I just love him. so anyway, last night, that's what he was wanting. So, I snuggled in, and rubbed his little chest & he turned a bit. I rubbed his back & legs. He snuggled in closer & closed his eyes. It was just what he was wanting. To snuggle with me & have me rub his back.
It was soooooooooo wonderful.
As moms, there are so many icky tasks we do. So many un-fun mommy moments like when Gage is in the middle of a fit & screaming....and then there are moments like when he WANTS me to rub his back that just make up for all of the hard stuff...it makes up for all of the gross parts. It's just so wonderful.
