The Little things

Posted on: May 19, 2011

Over the years, I have learned how important it is to appreciate the “little things” in life.  Being a mom has made me take notice of these things even more.  I soak up every moment I have with my son and try to notice all his little idiosyncracies because I know that he is only this age for so long. 

Right now, he is at the age where his little personality is coming to life more and more each day.  It’s such a joy to watch him discover new things every day and see his personality shine in each circumstance.

The day he found his feet was a good one for him.  He was on the changing table, reached his arms forward and picked his legs up at the same time and when his fingers touched his feet, he got this look on his face as if to say, “What’s this?  Something new to play with”!  The day he figured out he was flexible enough to get his toes into his mouth, was yet another fun discovery for him (Oh, to be that flexible again…).  It’s so funny to see his little fingers wrap around his tiny foot and pull it to his mouth and chomp down on those toes.  Amazingly, he can fit all of his toes in there.  Guess he’s got a big mouth.  His dad would say he gets that from mommy.  Ha!

With every new day comes a new discovery, facial expression, milestone, and more.  And each day I do my best to “take time and smell the roses”.  It’s all those “little things” that give us joy in life.  Take the time to appreciate them all.  Yes, even the diaper changes.
