I mean all the Moonbeams in general. I know I'm the mom of only one so I have time to sit around and be amazed by the every day things my kid does... but, it is what it is- she amazes me. She just makes me stop and go, "Man, you are AMAZING!" like pretty much every day. And when I say amazing, I mean, just in the most normal, how is it even possible that you start from this crying, pooping little lump and turn into this little person who does all this stuff.
Today, she started playing with a box of cat food. The box was already open, and she stuck her hand inside and was trying to get some out. I told her it wasn't hers, and then asked my DH to put that box away since it was open, and I didn't want her getting into it, spilling it, etc. So he takes that box, and puts it in a cupboard. Well, there was another unopened box. So Beni picks that one up and then walks over to the same cupboards and tries to put it away too! She obviously didn't get WHY we put the one box away, but she saw her dad put it away and figured this box which is the same, should probably go the same place. And she couldn't get into the cupboard that he had put the first box in, so she just chose a different one and put her box in there.
It's such a normal little thing- not really special at all- except that 14 mos ago she couldn't even lift her own head, much less see her father do something and do it as well.
Growing people is just awesome, no? And watching people grow. I love being a mom.
