Today we spent a day swimming and playing in the hot hot sun. On our way home, you fell asleep in the car as you so often do. When we got home, I unpacked the car, and you opened your eyes.
I asked, “Do you want me to carry you in?”
You respond, “Waa” (which is your insanely cute version of “ya”)
I carry you in. And settle you on the couch. And you fall back to sleep. Chaos and fun all around you, but you’re just. so. tired. that you can’t fight it. And I just want to hold on to that precious moment forever and always.
The peacefulness of my sleeping baby boy.
Those chubby little fingers.
