Little toes and big smiles makes for a great playtime 👣
This afternoon there was a lot to do. I had an author event yesterday and needed to organize things post-event. I needed to sit down a pay a couple bills. Dishes sat dirty in the kitchen from lunch. Laundry made it to the washer but not much further. There was clean laundry from earlier in the week sitting at the foot of my bed. But the baby woke up from a short nap and seemed to just want his Mama. He nursed for awhile, taking many breaks to squeal and smile. When he was finally finished, I place him on my belly, knowing he won’t fit in that exact spot much longer, his back up against my thighs with my knees bent to make a little seat for him. And he just smiled at me. We sat like this, smiling at each other, for awhile. I sang to him and tickled his little feet up to his nose and he smiled, squealed and giggled with delight. Suddenly my to-do list which I was certain was huge got much smaller. I sat in this moment, content. So content that I watched this sweet child and wondered how I got so lucky. Lucky doesn’t even begin to start to explain how I feel about this little boy. So in love, we laughed and played. I’m so thankful I was able to put aside everything I thought I had to do in order to spend this sweet playtime with my son.
