Holding Tight


Cory gets kind of upset when I get them up out of bed...especially when it's the third time for the night. But this is why. Because sometimes they're trying and full of energy. Because sometimes I'm too busy to sit with them. Because eventually this little guy is going to be too big for my lap and I'm going to miss holding him desperately.

I try not to wish the time away. There are things I look forward to as they get older, but for now...for this moment...I really love getting them out of bed so they fall asleep in my arms. Sorry, Cory. :)

And no, those jammies aren't too small. Well, maybe they're getting there. :)

There's nothing better than a sleeping baby in your arms. that's why we fight for them at Mom's. I'm glad we have Chad by us. He is by far the snuggliest baby I've seen. He'll put his little head on your shoulders and snuggle even when he's wide awake.
Love it!

This definitely still falls under your February resolution of writing "Things I love."

I so get that. And at that time of the day, they actually like to snuggle with mommy. Which is otherwise not going to happen.
