As I laid with Cooper tonight after reading books while he fell asleep it occurred to me that I needed to get this down right away so that I never forget it.  Now that he's not taking naps he falls asleep extremely fast which means I can lay with him until he's asleep.  I used to always try to but my being there seemed to make it harder for him to fall asleep so I would end up having to get up.  He always wants to me be face to face with him but he can't fall asleep like that.  So he will say snuggle me momma and I face towards him.  We rub noses and talk about our day and then I turn over and so does he.  He always, always falls asleep with his back to mine and his little head tucked back into the back of my neck.  It is so precious, I want to cry just typing it out.  I know these moments are fleeting and it hurts so badly to know it will go gone in the blink of an eye.  He will be grown up and I will miss these moments with everything inside of me.

The most precious thing about his sleep right now is that he insists on sleeping with his big and little giraffes.  We are very much not a stuffed animal family but I have hung onto a few he's received in the past four years.  Giraffes has always been my favorite animal and my dad gifted this giraffe pictured above on the day he was born.  I have absolutely no idea why, but for the past four weeks he has been cuddling with it while he goes to sleep each night.  It is the sweetest things he's possibly ever done.

I love you Jammy!
