Reflections in the Mirror

Did you know that 19th century farmers believed that a baby shouldn't look in a mirror until the age of 1???  If they did, "it meant death."  The reasoning was that young souls were only loosely connected to a body, therefore a soul could easily become 'stuck' in the mirror.  Well, I guess I wouldn't have made a good 19th century farmer lol.

Last week, we returned to our favorite playgroup.  It was the first one of this session (they were closed for a few weeks due to MCAS).  We arrived on a few minutes early.  Josiah was happy to be there.  He spent an hour crawling around, playing with toys, and interacting with anyone who would pay attention lol.  He was having so much fun.  In the corner of the room, there is a climbing structure.  On it a platform with a mirror.  I had yet to place Josiah on the structure.  I decided to give it a whirl this time.  I picked him up, sat him on the platform, and pointed to himself in the mirror.

The moments that followed were magical.  Here are a few of the great ones:

If playgroup had been endless, I could have sat there for hours just watching Josiah watch himself.  It was pure ecstasy.

This video captures the magic.

I just love moments like these.

Josiah - Each time you look in the mirror, may you see your full potential.  May you see the amazing person you are.  May you truly know how much you're loved <3
