Jackson is waking up. He is getting to point where he is staying awake a little longer and noticing things around him. And everything is a treat, an amazing wonder. As I watch him, eyes wide open, take in his expanding world I find myself looking around in wonder too. As I do jazz hands above his head he stares at them as if they are the most amazing thing he has ever seen. Every person that says hello is someone new that deserves to be studied and given a grin. The toys hanging above his head are carefully watched. And his reflection is the favorite of all! I often wonder what he is thinking because he is concentrating so hard on all these new things. It makes me excited too to show him all my favorite things. The big blue sky. A red tulip. The ocean. The sand. Lightening. A rainbow. And I'm excited to see these things through his eyes too. To see them again for the first time. There is nothing like the wonder of a child to bring the child out in you.
