Snapshot:48

cozy / february 2011

I do miss this snugly baby. These days I get lots of hugs and kisses, but snuggles are just tough for an antsy toddler. Like so many others, I have been feeling extra emotional and wanting even more hugs the past few days. I have to remind myself that it's just as beautiful to watch my little guy play as it is to smother him in my arms. 

After feeling sick last week, and wanting desperately for someone, anyone, to come and watch my kid for the day... this week I am cherishing each moment. I love these boys, and I am feeling very lucky right now.

  1. Such a sweet photo. I say sneak in for an extra little back rub or smooch while he's sleeping. ;)

  2. Sweet picture. It's hard when they don't want snuggles anymore. But the good news is that once Fletcher got through that go go go phase, he LOVES a nice long cuddle with a book on the couch.

  3. This is so adorable. I miss the baby days. But I think they always like a quick snuggle. I have to steal one from my 10-year-old, but I know he secretly likes it! ;)

  4. Teenagers are even harder to snuggle. Sigh. But then, we have the puppy for that now lol!

  5. Ahhh! I know! It doesn't go away, either! Even though we have all the kids we need, I still miss the snuggly baby phase!

  6. I tell my daughter every day that I don't want her to get any older, but she keeps growing every day. She tells me she is trying to stay young :)

    I always loved holding my mom's hand and still do to this day. I hope I can be that lucky with my kids.

  7. Such a sweet photo! We've actually experienced the exact opposite, with our little guy getting snugglier the older he gets. Here's to more snuggles for all!

  8. I caught myself just today saying that I wish I had a brand new snuggly baby, despite knowing that there is no way I could handle it.

  10. This is the most precious photo!!!
    I miss those baby snuggles too. Nowadays, my boys don't always say 'yes' when I ask them for a hug, but when they're happy and willing, boy do they get an embrace...
    Sending you much love.
