baby mine

mice 003

i was just on the phone with an old friend and realized that today 
is gavi’s birthday.
six months old for heaven’s sake. already?!

to watch lukey play outside
to kick his chubby baby feets in the kiddie pool
to have nibbles of baby food
to hear his daddy’s voice
loud rockin’ franti music in the car

to be by himself
to not be able to reach me while he’s sleeping
that i like to go out to late night concerts
sitting in the bumbo seat
to go to bed at night
…or take a nap

lucas and i were looking through old pictures on the computer
and saw one of me big and pregnant.
“ohhhhh!” he said. “there’s baby gav when he was still in your belly”

six months has happened in a blur.
