A Dance with Mommy

My little guy and I love to dance together. Our first song of choice for months was Harry Connick Jr's "Come by Me". All I would have to do is start that song and Brayden would run over wanting me to pick him up to dance. We have both tired of that one since we found our new song called "You are the best thing" by Ray Lamontagne. I love that the lyrics sing throughout the chorus "Baby-you are the best thing...that's ever happened to me". It's beautiful. I pick him up-he wraps his little toughy arms around my neck and periodically lays his head on my shoulders as we waltz around the living room together. If I sing the song to him-he puts his ear close to my mouth and then turns to give me some smooches-which I totally love.

This is one of my absolute favorite things to do with Brayden. It makes me feel so blessed and so thankful to God for allowing me these special moments with my sweet little boy. The world and all the silly worries of the day are so far from my mind while he is in my arms. I love to just close my eyes, put my cheek to his and embrace these moments as if they will never end. It puts life in complete perspective. It's real, it's beautiful, it's precious and tender. Moments like these are the ones that make you realize what love, life and God are all about.
I love you bubby-and I love it when we dance together.
