A Full Heart

Just a quick post to share how amazing my little boy is.  After a long weekend of visitors and social events tonight was the first night that I was alone with my boy.  I decided that we would have movie night and watch the original Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer.  This is the first year that he has any real grasp of Christmas so I am trying to show him as many traditions as we can.  I wasn't sure if he would be into watching it, but he was.  He watched the entire thing intently and when it was over he kept yelling "More Mommy!"  He loved it.  The "snow monster" apparently stayed with him and he has been playing snow monster for the rest of the evening.  He even walked up to me and said, "Mommy, I yike Rudolph."  So f-ing sweet he kills me.

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.

Oh, he is soooo cute!
And amazing how much they observe when we think they aren't paying any attention.
