This Is Why We Have Kids

At 31 weeks preggo I flew to Ottawa to visit family and friends and I stayed with my seester & her son. My nephew Aaron is the coolest kid.   He converses only in sign.  

When Aaron was an infant I would wake early to retrieve him from his crib, give him a quick change and  tuck him into bed with me to hang out. We read books, sang songs and snuggled. This is still our deal. Each morning this week he burst into my bedroom,  always so excited to see me still there, tucked into bed.   He would climb into bed next to me to snuggle or he simply pulled back the cover from my head to plant a kiss on my cheek before heading out to catch the school bus.  In fact, one day this week he FAKED sick to stay home with Auntie...and we had a great afternoon.  

Honestly, he's such a great love of my life!

My friend Lucky came from Toronto to visit me at my seester's house for the weekend. Lucky has come to Ottawa to visit countless times before and has quite a relationship with Aaron of her own.  Right on schedule Aaron arrived to say good morning and was stoked to see Auntie Lucky!   He is all elbows and knees lately. I covered my Baby P Bump with a pillow...just in case of a misguided limb as he climbed into bed right in between us.

  Let's just say Aaron kinda...

... LOVES Lucky!




Aaron was escorted out of bed and our room to let us sleep a little longer... but before he left, he dramatically blew us each a big kiss from the door way before slamming the door closed.

This is why we have kids.

The best moment of my morning...when Matteo comes into my room and says "Hi Mommy...how are you? Did you have sweet dreams?" It is not possible to put into words how that makes me feel...
