Last night I had amazingly special moments with each of my boys. I was sitting on the floor playing with Sawyer and we were feeding his baby from toy bottle. He was hugging and kissing the baby and laughing. I saw love and a HUGE imagination. I wrapped the baby up and sang a lullaby and Sawyer thought that was the most amazing thing ever. I didn’t get these moments with Cooper and I may never get them. Pure joy I tell ya.
Then I moved onto put Cooper in bed. I spent 45 minutes reading to him. We were laughing and ‘talking’ and playing. I told him that his feet were stinky and made a really loud YUCK noise. He thought that was hilarious. I bet we did that for 5 minutes. I didn’t want it to end.
What if we go back to frustrated mad Cooper? I am so scared of it. I try not to think about it but the worry often gets the best of me.
And the biggest news of the day….DRUM ROLL….this is another subtle thing that only a trained ear and eye would notice. Cooper LOVES trains. We taught him the how to do a hand gesture for choo-choo when he was very little but for the life of me (and not for a lack of trying) I couldn’t get him to say ‘choo-choo’ when he made the gesture. Well, he did it last night!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (Pretty sure that isn’t enough exclamation marks!) He made the gesture and put a sound with it. I even caught it on video today. We were finger-painting. Well, sort of. Apparently my finger-paint is from 1983. So, we pretty much just made a mess.
As I am typing this Cooper just brought me a box of wipes and made the YUCK noise. Yup, he pooped. Pretty sure this kid needs to be potty trained. If you are smart enough to bring the wipes to mom it is time to poo on the toilet kiddo.
