We've got a Mama's Boy on our hands...
More often than not, when I am trying to get a few hours of sleep in at night before I need to leave for the night shift, I hear Cashton screaming downstairs. I try to ignore it. Daddy can handle him. But, it's impossible to sleep through it. Cash gets himself so worked up!
A few nights ago, this exact scenario was playing out.
I got out of bed and walked downstairs to help. Randy is trying his best, but with a Mama's boy...only one thing will work: Mama.
It takes approximately 60 seconds to calm Cashton down. Lucky for me, I am Mama. Most of the time, that's all it takes! This time was no different. His sobs subside, and he buries his head in my neck. Through tear-filled eyes, he careens his head around to find Daddy, and a huge smile graces his face.
It's heart melting....and I'm sure a bit frustrating for Daddy all at the same time....
Cashton's first word!
Randy's face went from frustrated defeat to complete shock and awe!
I, however, was a little torn. So excited for those first words! So happy that Daddy got a little love after all the frustration of not being "Mommy"......and yet, feeling a little jipped.
At any rate, it's super cute hearing him start to jabber.....our little man is growing up!
