I love to feel his soft hair against my cheek, as he snuggles against my shoulder, softly snoring. I love how his tiny hand grabs hold of a lock of my hair, tugging at it ever so slightly. I love to feel the weight of his body, legs wrapped around my belly, chest gently rising and falling with each breath he takes. I love how I know he feels safe and secure in my arms, and how he comes to me for comfort when he wakes up in the middle of the night.
My sleep can wait. My arms can ache as I hold him tightly to me. I'll have my back readjisted at the next chiropractic appointment.
And meanwhile, I'll just savor these moments where my son needs me and hold him close.
What a wonderful weekend we had! Dropped babyAC off at the parents' while +3 went to City Square Mall to shop for some work clothes and to catch Alien: Covenant. The movie was ok, but I think my maternal instinct was really kicking in cos I kept squealing about how cute the baby aliens were. Hehe.
Slept in on Sunday, and babyAC actually managed to repeat "happy" "mama" "dee" which made my heart sing with joy and my soul soar to high heights.
We didn't really have anything planned to celebrate, but any excuse to go have a nice meal is always welcome, so we finally decided on heading to Ellenborough Market Cafe for a buffet lunch. Yum yum yum yum yum.
Walked around Meidi-ya after (oh I miss you Meidi-ya) then headed to the parents' place again to have dinner with them.
A simple weekend but one with the people I love the dearest, and that's always something worth being thankful for.
In other news, I start work tomorrow! Eeeks. I've got mixed feelings, of course. On the one hand I'm excited cos I'm quite sure I'll enjoy the work, but on the other hand I'm gonna miss spending time with the little one and sleeping in and napping with him.
Well, this is a new chapter in our lives and we'll just roll with it. Oh he learned a new word today, and said a big loud AIYO after lola said it today. Hehehehahahahaha.
