Tonight I stay up a little later, enjoying a glass of wine. I watch his little sleepy movements through the monitor, and my heart is full. I love him so much. I didn’t know it was even possible to love someone this much. I’m so incredibly blessed by my baby Braden.
I’m writing this so I can remember this moment. This moment of overwhelming love for the tiny human sleeping away. I love that you hold my finger when you’re somewhere in between sleep and awake. I love to hug you close to my chest in the early morning just before sunrise. Please don’t grow up too fast. I’ll miss those little moments when they’re gone. But for now, I look forward to morning when I get to roll over and see your smiling face.
I love you nugget!
