Imitation of Life

One night, my son decided to pretend to be mommy.

He fed his baby.

He put his baby on the "bed" (the couch) and tucked it in (literally, better than I have ever done...I don't think the baby could have moved even if it were animated).

He gave his baby a kiss, and told his baby to call for "mommy" if his baby needed anything and "mommy" would come.

I cannot even begin to tell you what it means to me to have him imitate his mommy in this way. I hope he has so much more of these memories ingrained in him and that he knows his mommy loves him so.

I think it is amazing the way you study your child. You are teaching me not to miss the little things.
