Have you ever been there the moment that your little one makes a discovery. Have you seen their whole face light up, their eyes widen and their lips form the faintest of smiles.

Isa made a discovery today, she was playing with a blue pen...because I am such a good mother that I let my child play with pens. Well she loves pens and she really likes this one, the good thing about this pen is that you have to click the end in order to be able to use it.

This is what Isa discovered today, she was holding it in her hand and clicked on the end. She stands there and just stares at the pen, she can't believe that it went click. So she does it again and the same thing happens. Then her eyes get bigger and she has this grin on her face. She has come to the realization that this is something very interesting and lots of fun. She looks at me and her dad and clicks again. And again and again and again and again, all the while laughing hysterically and running around the living room. The husband and I are also laughing hysterically because it is just so funny to watch your 16 moth-old hold out a pen to you, take her thumb and press hard and with purpose on the end all for the pleasure of hearing click.

We spent a good ten minutes laughing at the whole thing, Isa was extremely proud of herself and we where just absolutely gaga over her.

God, I love her so much.

What a great little story! It's amazing to watch kids learn the simplest little things, eh? It's hard being a baby! So much to learn!
