Wonder and Awe


I don't know if I'll ever tire of watching my sweet baby boy explore the world. He finds the most unusual things fascinating, the threads on the inside of a sock, the corner of a pillow, the underside of his swing, and the laces on Dad's shoes, just to name a few.

I'm sure it would be seriously boring, not to mention inconvenient, to have all the memories of my early life in my head along with everything else I'm supposed to be remembering, (not that I'm doing a very good job of that these days!) but sometimes I wonder what it would be like to remember witnessing the world for the first time, every new object filling me with wonder and awe. What's so special about the back of a toy when all the buttons are on the front? What makes the tag on a stuffed animal more fun to play with than the rest of the toy? Why are socks so much fun to chew on? What IS it about people's shoes?

I love the wonder and awe of this age! You are smart to be enjoying each moment.

I love that too! Kaylee loves tags as well and strangely loves trying to eat or successfully sucking on dad's socks and toes (ew!) But it is wonderful seeing our little babes discovering the world!

You are very wise and it's so true! It's so awesome to watch them, I always wonder what's going through her cute little head. I'm glad James is such a happy baby for you and hope he continues to love everything around him! You're such a good mom :)
