Toddler Snuggles

I just had to share....

On of the best things about this trip has been sharing a bed with Lucas. I know... most of you moms are thinking, "Wha!?"... but seriously. We haven't ever been a family where Lucas sleeps in the same bed as Matt and I. Even as an infant, I could count on one hand how many nights he spent with us in bed. Our little guy has always slept better in his own space and Matt and I... well... we highly value getting a good night's rest too, so no babies in the bed for us.

But, being here in Portland... Lucas is too big for the Pack N' Play, so he sleeps with me...and it's been so much fun! It's darling the way he snuggles into my arm at night, breathing softly. It's sorta like he slowly, but surely, snuggles his way toward me in the night. It breaks my heart when I wake up in the morning to his little chubby hand stroking my cheek. Oh the love of a child! He says, "Mornin'..." and smiles the happiest smile. It's just great.

I'm not gonna lie... I'm a little worried about the fallout when we get home. I suppose we'll just deal with that when the time comes. For now... I'm gonna enjoy some snuggles with my lil' guy.
