Things That Make You Go Awwwwwwwwww!

Wee Man has been sick the last couple of days with a low grade fever and a cold. 

Last night he was content to lay in our bed and watch "Curious George".

Sometimes, I worry about our bond with him.  He can be so defiant at times.

I know he is just asserting his independence and trying to figure the world out on his terms. 

Still, we worry...does he love us, does he need us, does he want us?

As we lay on the bed watching the movie he looked over at me and said,

"Momma, I not feel good, my tummy sick.  I lay on your chest?" 

He snuggled up on me and promptly fell asleep.

My heart swelled.

He loves us, he needs us, he wants us.

My son was defiant in the first year as well....he was testing waters...and he was older than your little guy. Fast-forward 6 years later -- he is 9 years old and still wants to sleep in the big bed with mommy or daddy cause he needs to feel us physically while he sleeps.

Enjoy every minute..the time flies by so so fast...

awww...too cute! I have the same sort of boy--very independant and curious. I was hoping that maybe when he wasn't feeling well he'd want to snuggle, but NOPE--he just had a cold and was totally himself-all over the place-HA! Hope you enjoyed the little snuggle time :)

I'm sure he's feeling better by now, but that is just adorable and such a good sign. Gotta love it!
