From the mouth of Miles

We're driving in the car and I look in the rear-view mirror at a strangely silent Miles. I strike up a conversation because I find I can no longer handle silence in the car, it's so unfamiliar. Weird.

I tell Miles that his Grandpa's birthday is coming up this weekend, and ask what he thinks we should give him.

He says, "a small dinosaur toy and a grown-up movie about police."

"Uuum, okay...those are good ideas."

A minute or two passes and then he says, "Mom, why is it your Dad's birthday?"

"Well, it just is. He's my Dad, you're right. I didn't know you had that figured out?"

"I do."
----------

Just after waking from a nap, he says in a very sleepy low voice, running all the words together,

"After Asher wakes up I can put on my pants and we can go to the park and I can get my wiggles out won't that be good?"

"I just love you honey."

"I love you too, Mom."
----------
I notice he's about to do something he shouldn't so I say,

"Miles, what are you doing?"

He pauses, wheels turning in that little head and says in such a grown-up way, "Just Hangin'."
----------


Miles - "Mom, check out Asher's blueberry eyes."

"Yes, I see them sweetie. You're right. They are blueberry eyes."

I'm not his mother, I've never even MET his mother, yet my heart bursts when I read these. He's amazing.

Blueberry eyes? SO cute! I love talkative little kids. My oldest used to talk and talk and talk, and once when we were visiting my in-laws I shushed him. My father-in-law lovingly told me that I might want to reconsider asking him to be quiet. "One day you are really really going to want him to talk to you." He was right, and even all through high school that son talked to me--- about girls, classes, drumming, rock bands, physics, whatever. I love talkative kids.

He is so adorable! I would love to sit and converse with him. He seems so precocious. It's so refreshing to see the world through little kids' eyes. Yes, blueberry eyes is my favorite Miles-ism :-)

Beauty. Taking time to notice and record these words and moments will be a delectable treat as they get older and you need the reminder of how scrumptious they are!
