Baby Talk from my Baby.

The past few nights have been late ones.

Late ones like we were out of town for a baseball game.

Dance and dinner ran late.

The yewzh.

Everyone was cranky and tired and over-tired and super cranked.

The whining was abundant.

A bumped head out of crankdom made bath time a cryfest.


Finally, my youngest calmed down enough to request her nightly book reading and tuck in.

She lays in the bottom bunk, story is read, kisses are given then lights out.

Tonight I needed more after all the emotion.

"Lay with me here on the couch and we'll read."

SIGH okay.

I read her book for the night which is like an encyclopedia, she finally tells me...

Stop there, I'm tired.

"Please, how about we cuddle on my bed?"

...stomp stomp OHKAY!

As we climb into my bed I rub her back and she lets out a "MAMA" in complete baby talk style.

Sounded like one of those baby doll back in the day when you pulled the string on their back they cried Mama!

I giggle.

She giggles.

Her giggles make me giggle more.

Giggles amplify in the room until we're delirious.

Just a few minutes later she's asleep on top of me in my bed.

Oh these moments, I want to bottle them up before they're gone forever!

    Oh, how I miss those times! Maybe if cute grandchildren come visit, I can get some new moments like that!

    My baby is 18 months old. We were playing peekaboo around the side of a chair in the living room this morning and she was laughing up a storm. I thought to myself that I need to get the video camera out because she won't laugh that same way in a year or two. And she just started to run. And wear her hair in a tiny pony tail. Even if she doesn't want me to share these memories with her in a few years (surely when she's in her 20's though), I want to at least have them for myself. My son is starting kindergarten this year and the time has just gone by too quickly.

    Oh so sweet! I have lots of those moments and also wish I could just bottle them up. Every day my boys do something that just melts my heart but also makes me realize they are growing up and that makes me a little sad since it seems to go by so quickly!

    Awww so sweet! I love watching my little man sleep in my arms. He's a toddler and the cuddle times are still there, but I know it'll wind down. So I'm enjoying them as much as I can.

    Amen to that.

    I wish I was one of the few people who remember every second of their life.

    aww so sweet, I cannot wait for my little guy to have the ability to say things to me and actually talk. He is 26 months old and barely says anything. He only says Mama, Baba,Bye,Go,Hi, Dora and I think one other word. He is considered behind in speech so I am longing for the days when he asks me to read him a book. This was such a cute story.
