Today he climbed up in my lap, looked up at me, and just smiled. Then he giggled, then he grabbed my hands and made me play pat-a-cake with him. How could any mother possibly resist something so sweet.
I stopped what I was doing.
We stuck our tongues out at each other and made silly noises.
We curled up on the couch and he nursed while I enjoyed holding him close. Then, he fell asleep laying on my chest. I laid there enjoying his weight on me and wishing that I could stay like that forever. For just a minute there were no cares or worries. I was just a mom, snuggling her baby, and I didn’t want to let go.
Eventually I did have to get up and finish fixing lunch for my girls. I carefully rolled over and helped Maxx snuggle in to the couch. When I came back he had his butt up in the air like a little stink bug. That seems to be his favorite position for sleeping, and every time I see it I just want to squeeze him.
Yup. I’m definitely in love with this boy.
