Don't forget about me

Every two weeks I visit my son in Austin. I always ask myself one question before he sees me:
"Will Noah remember me?''
I mean, just how much memory does a 9-month old have?
A ton, I guess. Last Saturday, when I got to his mother's house, he was asleep in his car seat. I leaned in to kiss him on his forehead and he woke up. There was silence for a split second. Then he started giggling.
Ok, I remember thinking, he remembers me.
I do a lot of things during my stay to make sure he knows who I am.
I play with him rougher than his mom does. (Don't worry, I don't throw him off a building for luck like some people do.)
I also run his little fingers through my nappy hair, which of course, is much much much different from his mother's hair.
He said "Ma-ma" a few times over the weekend, and I'd be lying if I said I wasn't a little jealous.
But he enjoys playing with me.
I know he does.
And that's good enough.

Babies are smarter than you think. He'll always remember you. He knew who you were before he was even born by hearing your voice while in the womb. He'll say dada soon. :)

Good luck man; looks like you're working hard at it and giving your best, and that's all he can ask for.
