Last night was the season premier of Mommy’s favorite show, Grey’s Anatomy. I had been looking forward to feeding you and putting you to bed early and snuggling up with Daddy to watch it, but that’s not what happened. Instead, Daddy had to go work on a promo video for churched, and he left you and me to hang out. You were a bit fussy when he left, but I got you to calm down in your bouncer. You love your bouncer. You watched me while I ate some spaghetti. After being in your bouncer for awhile, you seemed pretty content, and I couldn’t stand not holding you any longer. I picked you up and snuggled you in my arms and within minutes you were fast asleep.
You slept through the last hour of Grey’s (it wasn’t great, anyway!) and as soon as it was over, I fell asleep with you. Daddy got home at 10:30 and found us both snuggled on the couch. You were out like a light and I was in and out of slumber, drifting between trying to stay awake and take in every one of your sweet infant breaths and dosing, enjoying the peace of the moment.
I won’t ever forget last night Elias. You bring such peace and joy to my life. You are quickly getting so big. Watching you grow and change is so fun and exciting. I can’t wait to watch you take your first steps, experience your first hug and hear your first words. But for now, I am most content holding you close.
I love you, baby boy.
