He is the love of my love. I have known love before but none has matched or will ever surpass this one. He is my baby boy, my son Mekhi.. Mekhi continues to amaze me on a daily basis. Yesterday he said his first sentence and today he actually put two sentences together and was able to distinguish between an object and a person. As in “What is that? Who is that?” This certainly impressed me. As cliché as this may sound, it seems like yesterday he was coming home with me from the hospital. We struggled for at least ten minutes trying to get him in the car seat. When we finally departed I held his head up during the entire car ride home because I didn’t like the awkward slump of his head.
Today, just 14 short months later, he is a walking, talking dynamo. A whirling dervish of energy. As much as I would like for him to listen to my every request I do admire his ability to stand his ground without wavering his focus. My little boy is growing up and it is happening too fast for words.
He is the love of my life, my baby boy, Mekhi.
