Tonight after story time, I spent a few extra minutes snuggling with Lil' Man. Instead of tucking him into bed and singing twinkle twinkle, I held him in my arms. I began rocking him much like you would do a newborn . He closed his big blue eyes, and cooed as he buried his head into my chest.
I sang twinkle twinkle, Humpty Dumpty, Ba Ba Black Sheep, all the while stroking his hair, and face. I can almost guarantee that he was not rocked or sang to as an infant. He loves to curly up on my lap, and act like a baby.
When our snuggle time was over, he sat up give me a big old kissed. He said "I love you mommy, forever and ever." Talk about tugging at the heart strings. In response I said "I will love you forever, and ever, and ever ." We both laughed.
I then carried him over to his bed, tucked him in, and gave him a "squeezie" Good night sweet boy I will see you in the morning I said as I kissed him on the cheek. To which he replied "I'll see you in a few minutes Mom when I get up to go pee pee." A few seconds after my cheeks hit the sofa, I heard the little buggers door creek open.
"Mommy", he said with a big smile on his face. "I have to pee pee."
