Life at 1572: Kisses and Cuddles

Kisses and Cuddles

When Jackson, wakes up from a nap there isn't a lot of moving or talking, just a somber quietness.  I stop whatever I am doing to sit with him and cuddle him in my arms because I know these days will not last forever.  We sit quietly listening to each other breathe, and I sneak in a kiss or two.  Slowly, he starts to wake up, and we sit and talk for a bit.  Yesterday, I had my hand resting on his chest.  He looked up at me and said, "Mommy, you can believe in my heart, and I can believe in your heart." I was a puddle of mush in his hands.  He is my everything.

How absolutely precious! Love that you can spend that special time with him like that. That will be something he will cherish as he gets older.

Motherhood is priceless, the enjoyment they give, it is so hard to believe some kids in this world don't feel that ever!! Good for both of you.
I still get that flush feeling with my grown up kids. It can stay fun for as long as you want it to.

Oh MY heart!! He is so special. I know I am being totally biased but I do say he is a sweetheart and I have to go on to say that it is a direct result of how you both are with him. You treat him with sweetness and tons of affection and he reflects it back to you guys and to all of us! Good job!
