Perfect Moment Monday: Conversations


Sunshine was a bit delayed with her speech. Her poor little ears were filled with goop until she had her surgery to remove her tonsils and adenoids, and drain her ears and insert ear tubes. That was done a month after her second birthday. Immediately she could hear so much better, and her speech took off. I’m just loving our conversations. Her enthusiasm, peeking into her thought process, watching her sense of humor develop, the give and take, it’s awesome.

As I’ve posted recently, I haven’t been feeling great lately, but I savor our increasingly nuanced conversations. They are wonderful perfect moments.

Last week as I pushed her in her stroller after leaving daycare, I asked if she wanted a banana.

“You have one?” she asked.

I stopped pushing the stroller and walked around to face her. “Would I ask you if you wanted one if I didn’t have one?”

“You have it in you bag?”

"Yes."

“You rock, Mama!”

And speaking of her sense of humor, I tried to get her to sing happy birthday to her cousin, and this is what I got. Cheeky girl!

So cute!

Isn't in an amazing time? With advancing speech abilities you get a peek into her thinking process.

I'm happy you two had this perfect moment :-)

Tamale sings Happy Birthday to every object and concept you can possibly imagine. Yesterday she sang "Happy Birthday to Tamale's Birthday."

I love the fact that Sunshine's speech improved dramatically with the surgery.

I suppose you have added a youtube video of her singing the birthday song....Youtube is blocked in our office, so can't hear her precious voice...

Glad for such perfect moments...
