Since going back to work, I haven’t had one-on-one time with you for a FULL day – and definitely not 5 FULL days! Weekends are crazy with trying to get errands done, visit with friends/family and sharing you and your joy with everyone. But, sometimes I want to be selfish and just put the “come back later” sign on the door and keep you all to myself. Sometimes I wonder if you feel the same. I wonder if you miss the bonding time we had while I was on maternity leave. Last week, I got to spend 5 full days with you to have quality family time in Boston. During that time, you said your first word – “mama.” It wasn’t an accidental utterance. you looked right at me, said “mama” and started to crawl towards me, lifting your arms in the air for me to lift you. Such a beautiful moment that I will always remember. Call me crazy, but I like to think that it was your way of telling me that you love our bonding time as much as I do. As much as I love sharing your joy and sweetness with everyone, it was nice to indulge in a Dylan-sundae all my own. I love you lil man.
