K seems like such a big kid now. When he is tired, he sometimes lays his head down on the boppy, snuggles against our necks, or hunkers down for a nice cuddle. We are super big cuddlers over here, so this is such a happy addition to our days. I love snuggling in next to my big man and my little man for some Mickey Mouse Clubhouse or a quick nap.
When I first had Kingston, I use to let him nap on me. I would sit on the couch with him for hours at a time, my butt completely asleep, my arms completely cramped, and just stare at him trying to absorb the amazing fact that I was now a mom and trying to soak up every detail of him. Now that he is older and actually sleeps and naps in his crib, I miss those naps on me. Lately, I can't help keeping him with me for some naps just so that I can look at him. He is so beautiful. When he is sleeping, he looks like an angel. I want to plaster this image of him into my mind.
I want to soak up his delicious baby smell, run my fingers through his sweet head of hair, and kiss his soft, chubby cheeks. He is just scrumptious!
I love when he lays in our arms and spaces out. It is so rare that he is still nowadays, that the magical moments we have to just relax together are pure bliss. Soon our little man will be off and running. For now, I want to take a step back and appreciate this transition stage. He is mobile, but still a baby. Still our sweet, cuddly baby boy. He fits so perfectly in our arms.
I love you my sweet cuddlebug!
