Hudson's bedtime is always full of special moments.
Most nights, he listens as Will says a prayer, then says "Amen", and goes right to sleep.
Some nights, he likes to be held, in between his Mama and Dada, and squeezes the three of us together into the sweetest group hug, over and over and over again.
Other nights, he prolongs the process by asking for....
a drink of milk
.....basically, anything he can think of.
And then on my most favorite nights, he asks for Mama to sing with him.
His favorite is Twinkle Twinkle Little Star, and as we sing the tune, he
sways along in my arms.
The other night, he was calling for me from his bed, so I walked in to see what he needed.
(in a sweet, quiet voice) Hudson: "Mama?"
me: "Yes, Hudson?"
Hudson: "Mama? Let's sing."
After picking him up, we sing a couple rounds of Twinkle Twinkle. While singing, he squeezes so tightly around my neck, snuggling right into my face. After we finish,
Hudson: "I missed you, Mama." "I love you."
(heart melted) me: "How sweet, Hudson. "I love and missed you, too!"
Hudson: "Mama? It's sunny tommorrow. Let's go somewhere."
I love that sweet boy.
And these little bedtime moments are my favorite kinds.
