Perfect Moment Monday

Perfect Moment #1: Michael is in the "SpotLight" this month at school. I guess each month they pick a child in his class who brings in some photos and they post it on a bulletin board in his classroom. So, last night, Michael and I looked through the many scrapbook pages I have of him. I haven't scrapbooked in about a year (I have done a little of Willow's book, but hardly anything since she has been born). I had forgoten how many books I had done of Michael. And all those books are his when he grows up. And it was wonderful to go through those books with him, remembering him at various ages. The first time on a beach, his various obessions over dinosaurs and superheroes. And he enjoyed looking at them. I think, I hope, that he sees the love and tenderness that went into them. It also reminded me why I love scrapbooking.

Perfect Moment #2: Just a few minutes ago, just before she fell asleep in my husband's arms...she said "MOM" very clearly. Not Mmmmammma, or mamma or something that sounded like mom. No, it was the first clearly, audible Mom.

I'm so glade you have those books. I wish I had done somethign like that. I do have pictures but when they are in a nice scrapbook they somehow have more ...sweetness to them.

Ah to have a baby small enough to fall asleep in your arms and to marvel at every little (and big) milestone. So wonderful.

I wish I had made those scrapbooks or even kept up their baby book. I feel like a lot of the information is still around but in too many places.

And catching that word for the first time is priceless.
