Dean is usually the one who feeds Nathan at 8am. This morning, he was going to work early, so I was going to feed Nathan instead. At 7 plus, Nathan was already awake and playing in his cot on his own. He usually wakes up on his own and we leave him to play in his cot for a bit, before feeding him at 8.
Dean picked Nathan up from his cot...
Daddy: Nathan, daddy's going to work early today.
Nathan: *baby talks with sadness in his voice*
Daddy: Daddy will be back in the evening. Daddy will see you later.
Nathan: *baby talks more cheerfully*
As I sat there and watched, I couldn't help smiling. It was one of those moments where although we didn't understand what Nathan was saying, we understood him fully.
