Serious / by Christina Rosalie

Teeth coming in and a night of very restless sleep. Today pensive. I am blown away, watching my son, at the complexity of his emotional life--at only eight months. He has started anticipating our actions in response to what he sees us looking at. He reads our faces like an emotional roadmap. But today I felt like his mood was all his own, solemn, wanting to be held. A day where the world must have seemed very large to him.
