Keeping Up With Walt

This past Sunday, Noah, Walt, and I enjoyed a very relaxing day of being together after a stressful week of Noah finishing up classes. It was time very much needed, and words cannot express the enjoyment that I got from having my two favorite men together. You are not going to believe this...but.... I took a nap in the afternoon. It was an hour-long nap of me completely resting while Noah played with Walt. When I went downstairs, Noah was definitely tired out from keeping up with Walt, and that is the stage that he is in now. He is always on the move wanting to experience it all, and yet, I think that he obeys pretty well. He is definitely NOT perfect, but he is already learning what my eyebrow raise signifies before I open my mouth. And the words that he is saying! I forget how big he is growing! Before I realize it, he has learned another word, and it always surprises me! Today we were playing on the floor, and I pulled him over my back by his arms where he dangled with his toes an inch above the carpet. He giggled so hard, and then, said "Again". How could I refuse? His sweet, innocent smile practicing a new word that I didn't know that he knew. He has us wrapped around those little fingers!

Also, it is time that Noah and I admit to the blogging universe that Walt sings Justin Bieber. It reminds me of the episode of Friends when Rachel and Ross keep singing "Baby Got Back" to their newborn baby because that is the only thing they do to get to see a smile. Walt has only heard the song one time on the radio, but since he can say the word that the song consists of "Baby" he loves it. I found myself singing it with him the rest of the day just to watch him laugh, sing, and dance all at the same time. Now, when he should be sleeping, I hear him singing "Baby, Baby, Baby, ooohh".

Walt and I sing, dance, build, run, hug, and read all day. I am so blessed to have these special moments with him no matter how exhausting they are. I am looking for some more fun ideas to do with him, so let me know if you have any! Swimming is definitely about to be on the list of things to do.

    Maybe Walt remembered that song from last year's road trip to the beach! We sang it to him at the beach house too. He's got a good memory!



I love to hear from you!
