My Moment . . .

Today you took a shower with me. You love the water. You love taking a shower or a bath. Sometimes you like to take one with me. I don't mind because you normally like to use your markers on the walls and fill cups with water.

You are definitely my little Aquarius.

But today. I had a moment. It was like we were in slow motion. You stuck out your tongue, clinched your eyes shut and soaked in the water.

I saw myself in you. Running through the sprinkler as a child with my tongue out and drinking the water in. Big smiles and tons of laughs.

That's what you were doing today. Then I thought about you. Running through the sprinkler. Tongue out and drinking the water in.

And as if you were know what I was thinking, you wanted me to join in on your shower fun. So we did.

Then you asked for me to pick you up. You gave me a Willsey kiss. Then said, "I wuv you momma."

You are the best. Everyday I drink YOU in.

That's really beautiful!!! Aren't babies so precious at that age? Little people- but still babies! I have a little water lover on my hands too- what fun!

Awww, that was so cute! That's about the only way I get a shower anymore... put Baby Bub and some toys in there with me. :)

Very cute. I can picture the face. My little one loves the water too, and loves to shower with me. It's always fun to watch how they react to things we consider ordinary.
