Friday night at our house is pizza night and has been for a long time now. I get the fresh dough from the Publix deli and we make a pizza at home. So, my sweet little Joe has been watching me make pizza most Fridays of his whole life. He often wants to be held and help “mommy decorate the pizza.” I let him put toppings on. Well this week he wanted to help mommy squish out the dough. I love watching this mimicking phase. He’s really working on what to do and trying to find his words and mannerisms. My little sponge. My little Monkey. The days are long and the months are going by fast.
