Baby Steps

April 13, 2009

Things I Promise to Teach Him:

1. books–fun to eat AND to read!
2. to execute a figure-four leg-lock
3. pig latin
4. to bake a perfect apple crumble
5. how to make his dad crazy without getting in trouble
6. 10 ways to prepare avocado
7. how to ride the streetcar
8. to do a steady handstand
9. one new joke, each time we meet
10. “Here is the church and here is the steeple, open the doors and see all the people!”

Things He’s So Far Taught Me:

1. babies are awesome! I never liked babies until he came along!
2. you won’t break the baby if you don’t hold it perfectly
3. baby-giggles can mend a broken heart
4. moms have incredible arm muscles! aunties do not!
5. little boys look awfully cute dressed in pink
6. babies know how to work a room
7. babies do not travel light
8. rolling on the floor is hilarious
9. every shirt looks better with a little drool on the shoulder
10. sometimes, peeing in the bathtub is unavoidable

    My favorite: 10 ways to make avocado. He’s adorable! I’ve been hoping my sister will have one soon so I will have an adorable little play thing with no strings attached 🙂

    At this stage in his life, I think his favourites are also 10 ways to make avocado, and eating books.

    As for the things he’s taught you, #10, it is so true, and if you substitute “bathtub” for McDonald’s cup, you’ve described much of my 18th year!

    One of the coolest things about babies that I’ve learned is that the better they get to know you, the more fun they are. When they call you “my friend,” it is the best feeling!
