Gavin was playing with his activity table about 3 feet from where I was sitting. He stopped what he was doing, crawled onto my lap, and gave me a big sloppy kiss. And by kiss, I mean he opened his mouth wide and put it over my mouth. He's kissed me once or twice before, but only after I've prompted, "Gavin, can you give Mommy a kiss?" Today was totally spontaneous. It was the cutest. thing. ever.
I also got to spend some one-on-one time with Gavin today. Michael had to run some errands and took Charlotte with him, so it was just Gavin and me for about an hour. It was nice. And, well...easy. I certainly don't mean to belittle the efforts of women with only one child, but it was so much different than having two. I didn't have to referee any baby-squabbles, or pull one child off the other, or chase babies who are moving in two different directions. I cooked dinner, and Gavin basically sat at my feet and played with blocks. I loved it.
Tomorrow we're heading to the zoo with my brother-in-law and nephew. I'm sure I'll have plenty of good photos to share!
