Be Still My Heart… and My Boy

I love watching my little boy explore. Learning to do new things like peeling a mandarin, putting Tucker’s food in her bowl, or raking the yard.  What I inhale even more is watching my baby sleep.  His chest rising and falling with only the sound of his sound machine and ceiling fan.

Tonight, as far as I can recall, was the first time I’ve snapped photos of him asleep. Typically I wouldn’t want to “risk” the camera waking him up however some moments, like those you want to imprint on your memory (and heart) forever, are worth taking the chance.

As I walked out his room tonight I caught myself thinking please let time stand still just a little longer.  I’ll blink and he’ll be grown.

Be still my heart… and my boy.
