One of Those Moments

Beckett has responded to "no" for a while now, but I wasn't sure if it was the actual word or the tone of our voices when we say it. And last week he clapped when I said the word clap, without making any physical gesture for him to copy. Then yesterday when I was reading him his bedtime story, I read the line "I love you when you give me kisses," and he turned around from facing the book and gave me a big open mouthed, wet, baby kiss. It was seriously amazing.

It makes sense. We are constantly kissing this kid. Pretty much if I am holding him, my lips are attached to his face. And we're always saying, "kisses!" in ridiculous voices. So now it's clear. We really have to watch what we're saying. Because he gets it. He can't say it back yet, but he knows and if he doesn't he will soon. Shit just got real, people. I mean, shizz...shoot...ugh.
