22 November 2008: PJ's Top Three
Daddy loves PJ so much, however the following three items bring me
extra joy, an embarrassment of riches if you will.
1) Sprinting to his crib at the first sound indicating that he has
risen from his morning or afternoon nap, I find him standing at the
rail, crying, and rubbing his eyes. Seeing me, he extends his
little arms, I pull him out, hold him tight, and never want to let go.
And he doesn't want me to let go, at least for a few minutes until he is
fully awake and once again becomes Mr. Nonstop.
2) After bath time, I take PJ from the tub to his room. During
this short trip his naked bottom rests on my left forearm. This
the most wonderful thing in the world. Other times that I have
dared to carry him during his non-bath naked time he has peed on me.
3) My left hand is down near my knee, holding PJ's right hand up near
his shoulder. Together we walk from one room to another, or until
he decides to sit down or crawl instead.
Through PJ, my capacity for, and belief in love has increased
