Simon has had a lot of tough days lately, with the quad-teething action and what not. But you know, I have to say, it's not so bad given the smiles and love he creates when he's feeling better. The three of us had some nice quiet moments this evening when he got up from his nap. All at once he's making new sounds, rolling around, thinking about standing against stuff longer, having a great time in the bath... so many wonderful moments.
My favorite thing right now is that he hugs, not just when he's tired, but when he's excited. Baby love is so different from any other kind. It's hard to describe. Isn't it funny how as adults we have countless failed relationships stemming from an inability to communicate effectively, yet you can have this completely instinctual relationship between a child and a parent without a single word spoken.
Being a dad is awesome.
