Then as we were winding down for bed he said "I put Mommy bed." He went into his room and got his Lambie out of his bed. He brought it out and put it next to my head and told me, "Cose da eyes Mommy, cose eyes." So I did and I pretended to snore. He then stood next to my chair and rubbed my shoulder and sang You Are My Sunshine (I sing him that every night before he goes to sleep). Then he climbed up on my chair and leaned over and kissed my cheek. Then he stood next to my chair and kissed his hand and then placed it on my lips. Then he whispered, "Goodnight Mommy, Goodnight my yove" and he walked away.
This is the exact routine that I do every single night before I leave him in his bed for the night. Half the time he is playing and (it seems) not paying attention to what is going on but he clearly gets it. And he repeated it tonight to put me to sleep. This little boy is the sweetest, most wonderful little being on the entire planet and I feel so blessed to be able to be a part of his life. My heart is full indeed.
