little boy...

Dear little boy...
This morning when you blew kisses I was so excited, only to find out that according to your dad "you've been doing it for awhile."  Then when I was on my way to work and your dad called me to tell me that I had just missed you saying "nana" a.k.a. "banana" for the first time.
Seriously?  Two big blows in one morning little boy?  I KNOW that I've been working too much.  I KNOW that you are going to keep growing up without me there to watch every step. But today as I packed to leave for a multi-day conference, all I could think about was how close you were to walking and how I was going to miss that too.  I totally overreacted and cried.  Right there, like a big pathetic mess, I cried because I felt like you didn't need me.  I thought we had a deal.....

And then you took two steps.  Just for me.  I was the only one that saw it.  It was just between us, and I think I will hold it close to my heart for a tiny bit. 

Much better little boy. You sure have good timing.

This is wonderful. I know how hard working and missing those moments are, so to have something so special just between you and him is priceless.

Enjoy the uninterrupted sleep, and I hope your boy holds on to the rest of his new vocab until you get home!

So happy you got to see that first step! I know it's hard being a working mama...I cried with guilt with my 2nd one because I had to give up BF after 4 months because I couldn't keep it up at work.
