12 Days of Thanksgiving, Day Two

I apologize if you tried to post a link yesterday. I had not set up Mr. Linky correctly. It should be working fine now.

Yesterday after his nap Hoss came downstairs. His eyes were barely open and his face was red from being bundled under his blankets. He stumbled over to me and cuddled up against me as I sat on the couch.

I picked him up and sat him on my lap. I put my cheek against his warm, red cheek and held him. He scooted in and allowed me to hold him in my arms for only a few minutes until he completely awoke.

During those few short minutes, I cherished each second. I loved how his body was warm against mine. How he still squinted his eyes as if he was seeing daylight for the first time. I loved that he allowed one of his arms to gently drape across me.

It made me thankful that despite his growing older, Hoss still wants and needs his mommy to cuddle with him. I don't want him to stop wanting to cuddle. I doubt Mommy will ever grow out of it.
