"Mammy, Mammy"

There are little moments in my hectic life where I get overwhelmed with pure joy from the fact that I am the mother to my baby boy. These are moments that I wish I could just capture and put in a little box so that I can open them up later to relive that moment. He's growing up so fast. I can't believe he's turning 2 soon. His 2nd year went by faster than his 1st year. Everyday he does or says something so cute, I just want to bite him!

This morning, Ben woke up early to take care of Christian while I slept in (we've all caught the nasty cold that's been going around). Several times throughout the morning, Christian kept coming into my bedroom to try and wake me up but Ben would run up and grab him and whisper that "mommy is sick, she needs to sleep" and take him out of the room.

At one point, Ben was doing something in the kitchen so Christian made his escape and came into my room once again. He opened the door, walked in and began mumbling "mammy, mammy" (his version of "mommy"), climbed up my bed, crawled over to my face and began digging his fingers into my eyes to try and open my eyelids. I was so tired I just kept closing them shut. But, in my mind, I was dying because I thought it was so hilarious. I think I may have involuntarily smirked a little too.

After a few failed attempts of getting my eyes to open, he decided to lean in and give me a sweet kiss and then climbed off the bed, walked out of the room and even shut the door behind him.

When I finally woke up, I was greeted with a large glass of freshly squeezed orange juice from my hubby (that's what Ben was working on in the kitchen when Christian came into my room).

Sometimes, being sick isn't so bad... =)
