Naptime Cuddle

When we have babies we tend to wish away moments in hopes of greater interaction. We long for the first smile, the first laugh, the first conversation. We find ourselves impatiently waiting to do things with them, the "things" being different for all. What we find however, is that the babies get bigger, quickly. They laugh, smile, walk, talk, and suddenly we become soccer moms. As these milestones happen we then find ourselves just wanting to snuggle with our baby again. If your toddler is like mine, snuggles are few and far between.
Yesterday I had the good fortune of returning to the baby days as my rambunctious toddler settled into my arms for a long snuggle.
Ryder woke up mid-nap. His tent was not closed and he dropped his blanket out of the crib causing an episode of tears that brought me right to his room. I picked up the blanket, and him, and he cuddled himself right onto my shoulder. I decided to take advantage.
I laid down on my couch, Ryder resting on me. And so we stayed for an hour and a half, his little snore just below my ear.
Yes, the baby who rests on you is something we all miss as they grow. I imagine we crave it even after we no longer want more children. If you can sneak the opportunity to have 25 pounds sleep on you, I highly recommend it.
The real challenge: I was watching a dvr'd episode of Two and a Half Men, which is hilarious, and I did not want to laugh and wake my boy.
