Closed – Monday Moments

Filed under: Kids,Monday Moments — by Alison @ 9:12 pm

I still rock H to sleep before his naps. We read a story , or seven, close the blinds, close the door, turn on the music and rock in the rocking chair.

He’s getting heavier now. His legs hang over my arm, and I need to support him on my lap. He used be small enough to support in one arm.

But the thing that hasn’t changed is the way he snuggles his head in the crook of the arm. Or the way his eyes slowly close, and open again to make sure he hasn’t missed anything. Or the way, if I stroke his forehead, his eyes will close completely.

That’s when I can put him down in his crib and get started on my afternoon chores. But some days, I sit a little longer, watch his closed eyes and try to make sure that my eyes don’t close too.
