Bodhi loves to give kisses. It’s the sweetest thing in the world. Lately, I’ve felt like I’m the luckiest person around. Being a mama is such an amazing experience. It is hard and easy sometimes, exhausting and energizing, draining and joy-filled and everything in between. Even the hard times are beautiful though. Bodhi is at an age that is perfect for me. A colleague and I have been talking about how we don’t want our children to grow up. I keep saying that now is the best age and recently realized I’ve been saying this for months. Mamas of littles ones under a few months old, I say it just keeps getting better and the best is yet to come. It’s hard to believe that when you’re in the moment though.
Bodhi gives hugs and cuddles and is sleeping better. He’s saying so many words and communicates by pointing and gesturing. He enjoys swimming and splashing. He plays games and pretends to eat his wooden fruit, one of his favorite toys that we recently purchased. He laughs and understands humor. He sings and dances. I still sometimes can’t believe he is our son, our little sweet person to take care of, to shape, to guide, to love and to smother in kisses. Now, he smothers us back.
