Parenting Perspective: Talking about scary things

March 8, 2010 8:32:36 AM PST
My baby is now six months. It's a magical age - his eyes are now firmly focused and I can see him tracking me as I move around the room. His chubby little hands constantly grab my hair or reach for my necklace. Just yesterday, we had a "moment" as his eyes seemed to lock on mine and he reached his small hands out to touch my cheeks. For the first time, I think I may have some idea of how much my own mother loves me.
