My Sweet Boy

If it’s even possible, I think I love Collin even more this week than I have his entire life. Devin has been gone all week, for the first time in more than a month, so it was just me and Collin. I’m not sure what got into him, but he was really really good all week, and super lovey and clingy. I’m not necessarily thrilled about the clingy part, but the super lovey part, I could phototake in bulk.

Recently in the mornings we have cuddled in bed. He eats a little box of raisins and watches cartoons, for at least 30 minutes but usually an hour. If I’m lucky a little more. :) There is no better way to start the day.

At the end of the day I ask him if he wants to take a bath and he walks to the stairs. I taught him how to hold my hands and take the steps one at a time, it’s the only way he goes up now. He stands at the stairs turns to me and reaches for my hands. My sweet little boy stands at the sink to take his vitamins and brushes his teeth. I can’t believe how big he’s getting and all the things he’s learning. Just before bed we read a book or a few stories from his Baby Bible. He has started to put his hands over his ears or uses his fingers to plug his ears when he’s done reading. At first I thought it was  because of his ear infection, but nope, just because he was done reading. So I put the book down and he turns to me and give me a kiss and hugs me. I could hold him all night long. But he won’t let me, he wants in his bed. :( As I walk out I ask for one more kiss, which I usually get, and tell him goodnight, which he responds to with, “Bi!” and lays down. I walk downstairs one happy momma. photo

The rest of the night I have a tendency to flip through the photos and videos on my phone that I have of him. He just melts my heart every time he offers me a kiss without me asking or climbs up onto the couch and cuddles up next to me. He’s such a sweet boy that I love more and more every day.
