I Want To Remember.
Last night was a night that I want to remember. When I get home from work, Kellen wakes up from his nap and right before I get home from work, Grayson is just starting to nap. So, I get about an hour of alone time with Kellen. We play, we snuggle, we watch Elmo. I love that mommy and Kellen alone time. Then Grayson wakes up, we eat dinner, bath, play and get ready for bed. Kellen goes to bed around 9:30 then I pump. While I pump, Grayson sits in his bouncy chair smiling at me the whole entire time. I get myself ready for bed, then I get Grayson in his sleep sack. Then for about an hour, I have my alone time with Grayson. I swear, I live for those 2 hours. My hour alone with Kellen and my hour alone with Grayson. Grayson and I lay on the bed and play and talk back and forth. Last night I laid him in his crib (which is side carred to our bed) and turned on his seahorse. In the dark I laid there watching him talk to his seahorse, pucker his lips as he intently studied that seahorse, and reach for it with his sweet little hand. After a few minutes the seahorse dims and the light goes out. I wanted more time, so I turned it back on several more times, staring at little Grayson. I did this for about 30 minutes. I started to rub Grayson's belly and he instantly started to drift off to sleep, closing his eyes little by little until he was sound asleep.
