a good day.

I woke up this morning to my sweetest (Bennett that is) slowly and ever so softly pulling my bottom lip down, letting go and then laughing at the pop sound. Um, I loved it.
Then while playing with the same sweetest this afternoon, he pulled himself up and started scooting - in the wrong direction. Yep, he is now a backwards scooter. Loved that too.
As if this excitement wasn't enough, my very own sweetest picked up his sippy cup and took a few slugs all on his own. Loved that - kinda. When I say kinda I mean that I am kinda not ready for my sweetest to grow up so fast. Surely because I am kinda enjoying how he lathers on the kisses when he sees me (really, he does) and I am kinda loving how he is utterly and completely a mama's boy. I am kinda loving how he looks at me and how he chats with me. I am kinda loving how he leans for me and how he knows how much I love him. I am kinda loving it all. Well, maybe I shouldn't say all --- the nights are rough at the Christensen's house (enough said) - but yes, I will say all because I kinda love how he needs me... 24/7.

I love how you seem to savor every minute with your cute boy. I remember feeling the same way about Savanna-mixed feelings about her growing up. But each stage is so amazing to watch. She is so much fun now(She just turned 2 if you can believe it?). She talks up a storm and is so funny to watch. She tells me she loves me. There is nothing like that. He will always need you in some way. And then you will have another newborn to take care of! (That's where we are headed!)
