dancing with my baby

to my baby…

i wanted to record this memory because it’s one that i never want to forget.

when i went to tuck you into bed last night, i asked for my hugs and kisses as usual. you hugged me and cuddled so nicely that i decided we should dance. so we danced around your room with your head on my shoulder while i sang my “dancing with my baby” song. over and over i sang my song, and we danced. when i was ready to put you down i asked if you were ready and you said “no. dancing!”, so we danced some more. we stopped again. i asked again. you said “no. baby!” so we danced again. over and over this went. how could i say no to my cuddling baby boy? finally after many dances, i convinced you to lay down and go to sleep.

tonight, i promised that we would dance again. so, of course, we danced. i sang the same song and danced the same slow dance with your head on my shoulder. this time your arms were wrapped tightly around my shoulders as you didn’t want me to stop. when i asked to stop, you said “no. sing!” over and over again. i may not have the best voice in the world, but at least i know someone appreciates it.

i don’t think there’s any other feeling in the world like the one you have given me the last two nights. i love you too, baby.

beautiful! My oldest told me that I'm so pretty and if daddy didn't marry me than he would marry me! Boys can be so sweet...

you should print that off and frame it right now! I would have loved to have had that date stamp memory of my mother and me as a baby!
