I do believe...

He'd been standing at my knee for a moment or two. While I munched shredded wheat and checked my email.

When I do believe he just pinched my leg on purpose.

So I would look.

Which I did.

Into his adorable elfish face.

Milk dripping from my spoon frozen in the middle of mouth and bowl. Have I ever mentioned that I am not a multi-tasker?

His eyes were reflecting something. And I was trying to cypher that something. I just couldn't put my finger on it. Seizure coming? I love you mommy moment? What is he trying to say???

And then he spit his binky out...grinned wider...and licked his lips.

And it hit me! He wanted a bite of my breakfast!

Call me crazy...but I do believe my non-verbal son just spoke to me!

Although it turns out he's more of a fruit loops boy...

Absolutely that was communication at its most basic form, I love hearing that.

And I prefer Lucky Charms. Not just because they're magically delicious either, I think the colors are groovy.
