This Little Face
I love waking up with this face beside mine in the bed. I love the way this little face makes Mr. Happy's face just that - Mr. Happy. I can't believe I MADE that little face.
He's so funny, my little Mogrunt. He amazes me with what he sees, what he does, what captures his attention and how it shows on his face. He purses his lips in concentration, just like his great-grandmother. He sticks his tongue out, (likely feeling his teeth) while he plays, reminding me of stories of his Auntie Suzie reading a book with her tongue between her lips (she did this as a child, she's managed to stop now that she's a grownup). He has a sneaky smile, just like my Grampy Taylor, which makes me ever so grateful for genetics. His eyes sparkle when he's being silly, just like his dad.
We're heading into new territory with this little face. In two all too short months I will be heading back to work and I will not spend my entire day looking at that little face. While I've missed my coworkers (ok, some, not all), I've found a suitable replacement for their company.
I'm drinking up all of that little face that I can right now. I hope you don't mind indulging me while I do.
