I sit and watch my kids all the time and wonder how does it happen? They are learning something new every day. They are getting big so fast! I know we all have these thoughts and that it has to happen, but I still find myself sitting here thinking of how I can make it last longer! Here is just a little moment I had yesterday that I will now remember for a very long time.....
Zachary is right at the stage where he is starting to say a lot of words. He will just come out of the blue with somethings and it will sound so clear! This week, for example, he is saying "yes." There is a lot of his very own language he uses as well. He has his noises or sounds for all types of things that I am sure I don't even pick up on. Just yesterday I put one little phrase together. When ever he wants a drink he says "yang yang." Now, I know that doesn't sound all that crazy, but to me it is mind boggling.
I always remember my mom telling me that as a toddler I called water "yang yang." I don't go walking around saying "yang yang" all the time now so I don't know how he could have picked it up? Words like that don't seem hereditary, but maybe they are? He gets so excited now that I understand a little bit of his own language. I think he has asked for "yang yang" about 5 times already this morning!
I see so much of myself in my kids everyday. It is just a great feeling to watch them grow up and know that I did that!
