Counting

Dear Peanut,

You gave me a delightful surprise yesterday. You started counting as we walked down the path outside our front door.

Wuhhn, twooo, eee…

I held my breath. So far, your counting had been more along the lines of “one, two, nine, two, nine…” or “nine, nine, nine.”

O-uh, eye, sihh…

You were looking down at your feet, oblivious to my growing pride and barely-contained energy.

Seh-ben, eighh, nine, ten!

You punctuated the “ten” and gazed out in self-satisfaction. I exploded. “Peanut, you did it! You counted to ten! Woohoo! High five!”

And we walked on air the rest of the way to the car.

Love,
Mama
