Luckily 33* in Spring (what it was when I took Mav for his morning walk) isn't quite the same as 33* in the dead of Winter. We woke up late today. Ayden had his first good night in quite a while so I soaked up every moment of sleep that I could. He woke up snuggly, which he also hasn't done in a while so I soaked up very moment of that I could too. By the time we got out of bed, fed Mav and had breakfast, it was going on 11:00. I thought the day had gotten away from me but I looked over my list, made a plan and seized the day!
I put Ayden on my back while I put dinner in the crock pot:

I feel like he has made it over a communication obstacle and is really understanding the power of requests or getting to answer questions. It was such a pleasant day and I had so much fun marveling about these new developments. An added bonus is that my parents and David are just as excited about everything as I am and it has been fun to all be proud of him together.

I have heard people say that 18 months is "the perfect age" because they are starting to talk and communicate but aren't in the "terrible twos" stage. Here at 14 months we are almost there and I can say two way communication really has opened another dimension to our relationship and it is just going to keep getting better.
