Z Leaving on a Midnight Train
Forgive my singing in this video clip, but this was just too cute not to share. Z turns 4 calendar months old on Wednesday and he's a different guy every day. What a blast we're having. He's jabbering on, finally sleeping through the night and talking to himself to wake us up in the morning. He is absolutely hilarious and we're loving the time we spend with him. I don't know how you folks with kids can concentrate when you are away from them. My wife misses her job and her interaction with adults, but she's said she wouldn't trade this opportunity for the world.
We're a little bittersweet as he's growing up so fast. Every day that goes by is another day that he won't be that age. I mean, he'll only be under a year for, well, a year. That's only 365 days of baby, and really only 6 months of tiny baby. We already miss the little 2-week old Z. I wonder what it'll feel like when he's 15 or 30.
All that said, I'm really looking forward to him walking around and developing opinions. We read to him now, but he's not paying much attention. I'm sure he's a little sponge, but when he starts talking and really interacting it's going to be a freaking blast.
