Maddox climbed into my lap (as he usually does) this morning after breakfast and wrapped himself around me. He wants to cuddle so close all the time that I swear he would rather just be back in my womb all snugly and warm.

I looked at my baby's face..all peaches n' cream and pudgy with love and I squeezed him close and kissed all over his face and called him my baby. Maddox looked at me and said "I don't want to be baby" "oh, but you are, darling..you are" "no..I not be baby" "well..what would you rather be?" and then he got quiet and buried his face between my face and shoulder and sighed because really? He just loves the love.

Stay my baby just a little longer.

Kids grow up too fast, love..and really, what's the hurry?

I agree! But try as we might as mothers, nothing makes them stop! Hold 'em close, Abs, cause you have no idea how fast it goes.
