This is my first post I’m dedicating completely to Brooks. This is a little different from what I normally write. As I said in my last post, it is time for my blog to go in a little different direction. This is me being honest and transparent as I write out my thoughts. This is me being vulnerable with the world. I hope you enjoy!
Sundays are for snuggles and rest. They are for watching the big boy run and play while I savor every part of you as you are asleep. Sundays are for ignoring my to do list, ignoring the laundry, ignoring the dishes. For I know those things can wait. What won’t wait is this moment. This very moment that you are this little and want me to hold you while you sleep. You being my second born, I now know how fast time will pass by. I know too well that one day very soon you will be running after your brother and won’t want me to hold you and rock you. You being my child born into this world in a more typical fashion, I don’t want this time to end. These snuggles were missed with your brother due to various reasons, so I don’t want to miss a second of this with you. So while the world is moving on around us, I’m going to hold you a little while longer. I’m going to kiss your sweet face, smell your sweet baby smell, rub your soft baby skin, and stare at you to try to memorize your every feature. I want to remember this very moment for the rest of eternity because I know tomorrow you will be a little older, a little bigger, and just a little different. I’m going to sit here and hold you for a little while because I know you are only this little for just a little while.
