Just three weeks from his second birth James has individuated. Hmmm... perhaps that's not a word. However...
This morning while I was changing James' nappy, he looked up at me and pointed to me and said, 'Mama'. Then he pointed to himself and said 'Jayes' (his version of James!).
Yes, he is now a man of his own... nappy changing, feeding, clothing, jumping and bathing aside!
It's a profound moment and I don't know how I feel about it. Delight mixed with a tinge of nostalgia I suppose. But mostly delight. With any luck he'll babysit himself soon and Dirk and I can go to the cinema!
