With Mother’s Day just around the corner, I’ve been reflecting a lot on being William’s mommy. It’s such a blessing and I don’t ever want to take any of it for granted. One of the things I’ve been thinking about is my everyday favorite moments with William. There is so much joy in those seemingly ordinary times. Just a little caveat: we also have our moments of struggle too. William is 15 months old after all! I’ll save those moments for another time 🙂
Mornings with William
After William wakes up I usually bring him into bed with me for some morning snuggles. They don’t last very long but they are very sweet. I’ll have my coffee and he’ll have his sippy cup of almond milk and we typically read a few stories (over and over again). There are usually also some sweet kisses and tickling involved! I’m not exactly a morning person, so I love having this time to wake up together. Then we head downstairs for breakfast, and our day begins!
Evenings with William
Other than nap time and eating, William doesn’t stop all day. He takes one long nap in the afternoon, usually about 3-4 hours, and after that he’s non-stop. Believe me I am so thankful for that long afternoon nap! One of my other favorite times with William is when bedtime rolls around. I love our bedtime routine (it’s just changed slightly since he was nine months old!). After dinner, William takes a bath (which is his favorite time of the day with Caleb), then we get him in his pajamas. We play in his nursery for a while, trying to get all his energy out. Even after a non-stop day, he has still has energy to burn! I can usually tell when he’s about ready for bed when he starts to rub his eyes. That’s when we grab a couple of his favorite books and crawl up in the rocker for story time. He will actually sit still and relax for a little while we read and snuggle. Then we say our goodnight prayers, say goodnight to William’s animal friends and tuck William in bed. Precious moments.
What are your favorite moments with your little ones?
