Whisper Voice

Kiran and I were reading books and singing songs and snuggling on the couch before his bedtime tonight. He was getting sleepy, and he has actually been pretty snuggly lately which hasn’t historically been the case.

He grabbed a handful of my hair, like he does – the one behavior we are consistently, constantly working on modifying – and I whispered to him “no grab, no pull – can you let go of my hair?” – and he whispered his vocalization back to me!

I continued whispering questions that would occasionally get a quiet voiced (not *quite* a whisper but his version) response, and it was truly the sweetest, cutest interaction in the world.

It was just something I never want to forget, because it filled my heart during a time my heart needs filling.

I love him so big.
