A few weeks ago, Lewis started to reach for me when I went to pick him up.
At first, it didn’t register as a big deal, but it has quickly become one of the most lovely things about this current stage of being a mommy. It is such a small, tender detail of our life. And it makes me feel so connected to my baby boy.
When he was a brand new baby, it was give give give on my part. Slowly he started to react to his surroundings, which was a rewarding change. I felt like I was finally getting something back. And as time goes on, the relationship gets deeper. He is beginning to interact more and more, and each new interaction is “more” for my soul.
More of what? I don’t know. But it is definitely “more” of it.
