What this boy knows at 9 months

Love, laughter, peanut butter, strawberry yoghurt, the pain of cutting teeth, rolling and 360s, grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins, the shock and betrayal of falling off the bed and no-one catching him, waving goodbye, snotty noses, the dropping stomach and startled hands of air turbulance, crisp grass under his fingers, the warmth of the sun, numb toes from dipping in freezing ocean, sand shifting under his bum, hot seatbelts and sweaty head, cruskits, multigrain toast, the inconvenient plug in a too small bath, pointing, 'no', tickles, fluffy towels, hotel sheets, gas-heating, food in his hair and the slap of a wet wash-cloth against his face, Giggle and Hoot, lullabies, comfort and kisses.
