It hit me quite suddenly how much he has grown.
We sat on the couch pouring over one of his favorite books. He can now name most of the animals, including the fwamicko (flamingo) and the hiptomopotus (hippopotamus).
That morning he said, “Mama, I reads to you.” Oh how he has grown!
As I marveled and grieved in the same moment, tiny kicking toes caught my eyes. They barely stuck beyond the edge of the book.
Oh how he has grown, but he is still my baby boy. At least for now.
And for now I crave as many moments of “Mama, I reads to you” as I can possibly get.
