Perfect Ending to A Less Than Perfect Day

Tonight my sweet little man, you woke up and didn't want to go back to bed. I changed you and fed you and you were ready to play. Mommy was so ready to relax after such a crazy day, but you had other plans. So I held you and walked you around the living room while I watched some silly program online. I snuggled you up & smelled you and kissed your sweet little cheeks a hundred times at least. You held your head up so well. Then as you started to run out of steam you rested your sweet little body against mine. All curled up like you once were inside my belly and drifted off to sleep. I held you for a long time. Listening to your sweet noises.

That's when it happened. You laughed. In your sleep. And I giggled because it was so cute. When I laughed you laughed again. This happened a few more times until your body went heavy in my arms. Oh how my heart felt full sharing that tender moment with my little boy. Just you and me giggling together late on a Friday night. Although you will not remember this night I will treasure this memory forever. I hope it's the first of many more laughter filled moments to come. Yes my sweet Oblio, it was a perfect ending to a less than perfect day.
