Stealing quick kisses with a sleeping babe between us.
The look on my boy’s face as he sleeps soundly with his precious head on my shoulder.
Watching my two favorite boys cuddle in the morning light.
But as I fed and rocked my sweet baby boy to sleep last night, I had to remind myself that these moments are fleeting and will be gone before I know it. If he only wants to be held, I need to just sit there and enjoy it. Soon, he’ll be letting go of my hand at the playground. Then, in the blink of an eye, he’ll have his own life with his own family, and he won’t need me quite so much anymore.
Sometimes I find myself staring at Westley’s little face as he sleeps, silently begging for time to stand still for just a little while…
…then I think, never mind. Time can move quickly…preferably to an age when I can get a full night’s sleep (which actually happened last night, you guys!).
The point is this: Our little boy won’t be little for long. I’m going to enjoy these sweet moments while I can.
