Perfect Moments

Last night I went into Nicole's room after we put her down for bed to check on her. She was still awake.

She said, "Hold me mama."

So I sat on her bed, and picked her up and she wiggled until I had her in a craddle hold. Like I held her when she was a little baby. And then I rocked her back and forth and she closed her eyes.

Then, with her eyes still closed, she said, "Sing me a song?" So I sang her the lullaby I used to sing her as a baby.

When I finished I said, "I love you Nicole." And she said, "I love you mama." And it was perfect.

I went back to my room and picked up my sweet boy who was wide awake in his crib. I laid him on the bed next to me so that I could nurse him. He immediately latched and started eating. Then, he unlatched, looked up at me and got a huge grin on his face and said, "Agheeee." Then, he latched again, and ate until he fell asleep. And it was perfect.
