The most wonderful thing happened last week when I was in the middle of finishing up my Gussy work and packing our home for our move across town — Maxwell fell asleep in my arms after I nursed him. So I did what I know best, I held him and whispered a long trail of thanks to Him. Max is getting so big, when I hold him his feet dangle past my hips. He’s a healthy, happy, heartfelt boy… and I love snuggling him as he sleeps. Last week we started sleep training him during the night and at naptime. It’s going so well, but I have to admit… I miss holding him as he slips into dreamland. I think that’s why I held on to that sweet moment last week when he drifted off unexpectedly.
What happens during the unexpected is the fairy dusting of life.
It’s precious and to be cherished.
I had plans to leave early to run a few errands before meeting up with friends, but once Max feel asleep I was more than happy to stay on the couch and snuggle him. Errands can wait; my focus is on the unexpected.

PS. Our move Saturday was a piece of cake, yahoooo! It took us just a few hours to get the truck loaded + unpacked, and after it was emptied the most wonderful thing happened: our friends even helped us unpack for a few hours. OH MY WORD! I told Zack yesterday how blessed we are to have such incredible friends :D My heart is so full and we are settling in nicely. Maxwell is even sleeping through the night, like all through the night. See? Fullness… yes…
