Enjoy the little things!

Okay, so this post isn't about a book or a challenge. It's about Gabe. I try not to talk about my baby too much, because he'd take over the whole blog, but he turned 10-months-old yesterday. It struck me this morning that some of the most meaningful conversations I have are with my son. This may sound sad, like I'm some crazy lady talking to herself, but that's not the case. I studied non-verbal communication some in college (because I loved psychology classes), but I won't get into technical babble with you. I'll just say it's important, which I'm sure you knew before. Anyway, my conversations with Gabe are mostly non-verbal, since his babbling the same sounds over and over doesn't really tell me much. But I can tell by his expressions and the way he moves around that he's telling me all about the things that are important to him right now, and I, in turn, tell him things that are important to me and things that he will be learning soon. So this morning I was talking to him about numbers and letters while we played with some foam ones, and he was probably telling me about the colors and textures of the toys--very seriously, I might add.
