Baby Talk

It’s amazing to see how much Kyle’s brain is developing. That big smile of his just adds another dimension of sparkle to his eyes that makes it so easy to love him πŸ™‚ For the last while now, he’s been grabbing my hands when we’re playing on the floor just so he can pull himself up to a standing position. Yeah, he seems ready to GO. And, as Chantale recounted in her lj, Tuesday night when I got home, he decided he wasn’t going to be immobile any more and started crawling around looking very much like SpiderMan. Yes, it sounds silly, but you had to see this little guy simply smacking his hands on the floor and slide/ dragging himself. He isn’t crawling in the “traditional” sense (hands and knees) but is instead slithering around. And yes, it looks like Spidey only horizontal πŸ™‚ Thus, I’ve taken to calling him SpiderBaby since πŸ™‚

Well, yesterday, he decided the standing and the slithering wasn’t enough. Now, he’s calling for his Mother in an almost sing-song voice. “Mama… mama…” and what a sweet and gentle sound it is (at least for now πŸ™‚ ). It is truly unbelievable how little moments like that can melt away all the brain garbage piled up to overflowing and the opression of a north american working existence. Sitting or lying on the floor playing with my son and whatever gets in front of him (shoes, socks, toys, remotes, dog) is quite the laugh and joy therapy. By the time I get to bed, I barely can remember what had been troubling me. It’s such a wonderful feeling…
