Micaiah has this new habit of begging to get in my bed right after he wakes up. It just started this week, and I am pretty sure this is his way of weening. (He has been nursing once a day for several months now, slowly weening himself.) Around Christmas, things were crazy busy and he went a couple days without nursing. We both just kinda forgot. And you know what? Those couple days were AWFUL. He was irritable and sooooo clingy. I was on edge and could not function because he was crying at me to hold him constantly. Then Daniel pointed out that he had not nursed. I nursed him that night, and he was back to his normal happy self. He was clearly not ready to ween. He felt "off" and no matter how much of my time was spent with him I could tell he felt a loss of connection between us during those two days.

But this week he has (on his own) just stopped asking to nurse, and instead he has started asking to lie in my bed with me. We will snuggle and talk a little bit. He will ask if my hair is wet from the shower and then tell me that he had another dream about waffles. Sometimes he even asks to watch a veggie tales video on my phone. But we mainly just snuggle. Then after he gets his snuggling fix, he sits up and asks to go see Rye-Rye. :)

These few moments each day are so special to me. In less than two weeks my baby will be two years old. He has always been my snuggly baby, but the older he gets the busier he gets. Which means less snuggle time for Mama. He will run up to me and hug me and give me kisses dozens of times during the day, but then he is running off as quickly as he came. So, I am obviously loving this time together and will continue to just soak it all in for as long as I can.

Oh, how I love this sweet baby!
