To the beat beat beat of you


From the very beginning you were one who would dance to the beat of your own drum. Some like to say it - but you - my little one - you really live it. 

Even as an infant - holding closely to my breast - I could see the twinkle in your eye - that sweet baby face with a touch of silly. You saw the humor in life around you without being told it was there. 

These things cannot be taught - not that. 

But you do teach me to lighten up - to smile more often - even laugh and take a chance. 
I cannot help but to laugh right out loud when the outrageous comes from your tiny mouth. I cannot help but to laugh and kiss when you say the things you say - when you share that unique outlook. 

Your own beat - your own drum. 

Some things cannot be taught - but with more of you I'm remembering to let go and just dance!
