Little Things

It’s amazing how easy it is as a parent who sees his child every day to miss the little things in your child’s development. Like, how Robbie laughs so much more these days, and how he laughs at things that are actually kind of funny; and how he follows people (and puppies) around the room with his eyes, even from far away; and how he is teaching himself the basics of coordination by removing and attempting to replace his pacifier; and how he has a new fascination for his feet; and how he has more than doubled in weight since Gotcha Day; and on and on. These are things other people—like his maternal grandparents, who came from Albuquerque to visit him this weekend—notice, but The Missus and I sometimes take for granted. He grows and changes every single day.

One thing hasn’t changed, though: he’s still a pretty darn cute kid.
