{THE ORDINARY MOMENTS 15} Silence of the Night & Baby Boy

In the silence of the night is when I am most relaxed with my beautiful baby boy. I must admit that I am normally feeding him and checking out Twitter these days but I do try to stop and completely memorise his soft sweet head. Those little fingers that are often gripping on to my pyjama top or reaching out for warm skin are so special.
He is normally drinking his favourite milk with his eyes closed but once in awhile I look down and he is staring at me. He is smiling and chatting more these days and in the quiet of the night is when we have our best talks. There is no sister making noise or the humming of a children's TV program in the background. There is just him and I cuddling in the dim-lighted living room. Sometimes he wants to bounce up and down on my lap. Working on strengthening his legs and wiggling his bottom. Soon he falls back to sleep peacefully and I sneak back into bed. In the morning, I wake feeling tired but he wakes up and gives me a huge smile. The smile and look in his eyes says "Thank you Mommy for the warm milk and cuddles last night". I am trying to remember every moment of my son being a baby. I don't know if will have another baby in the future so I need to cherish these "ordinary" baby moments. I love you sweet boy.

  1. I used to love those night feeds. Late at night just baby and me whilst the rest of the world - or so it seems - sleeps. The quiet, their breathing, that baby smell and the sucky noises. Those really were the best times x

  4. Aw I used to love these late night feeds so much. Even now I miss them weirdly even though at the time you think you will never ever not be so exhausted. Definitely treasure them as they go too quickly don't they? xx

    1. Thank you Katie. I do hope someday to actually feel rested in the morning but I am just trying to cherish these moments with my Baby Boy. Never will get these moments back with him. Warm soft head is the best. Cuddles with our growing girls are not bad either! Have a fun Easter weekend!

  8. Oh this is so beautiful. I couldn't agree more and I will never forget my late night feeds with either of my babies and how precious they are just the two of you in the darkness together as one. It's something that is so amazing about those times. Good for you for cherishing every last drop of it while it last. Thanks for linking up to Share With Me. Happy Easter! #sharewithme
