Some of the most special moments I’ve had have occurred watching my baby girl learn and come to understand the simplest of things. Watching her as she has complete focus and awe as something new dawns on her allows me to relive the wonders of our world on a daily basis. Seeing her as she realizes what her eyes are recording isn’t just 2D but in fact 3D. Her realizing that those sounds she hears are actually coming from her. Her realizing that thing waving randomly in front of her is actually a) her own hand and b) is something she can control. The countless associations she makes between previously random events or objects which now have come together and equate to something more fluid. I could go on and on.
During our stay at the beautiful Island Vista Resort in Myrtle Beach, SC, Athena and I had many beautiful moments just like these. Follow along as I go through just some of them.
