There are times in life when I know that I need to savor each moment, cause it will be gone all too quickly.
Like this morning.
LJ woke up at the annoying hour of 6, so I put him back in his bed and told him to go back to sleep.
Sometime shortly after, we heard him knocking on his bedroom door asking to come out. I didn’t even move, but simply said, “your turn” to the hubs.

The next thing I know, it’s 8:00, LJ is nuzzled in next to his daddy, and Hubs is lucky if he has half a butt cheek on the bed. We spend the next few minutes snuggling before Hubs had to get up, but it was what happened next that I want to remember forever.
My little Boo snuggled up as tight as he could next to me, rubbed my arm, and kept saying, “I your baby, I love you mommy.” It was almost like a little kitten purring as it nuzzles up to its mother. So sweet, innocent, and just so much love from someone so small.
It makes me want to throw up to know that the days of him wanting to snuggle in bed, give me kisses all day long, and telling me, “I love you” in front of his friends are coming too quickly to an end.
I just want to sit here, soak it all in, and pretend he will be my little man forever.
