Fresh Baked Cookies and a friend to share them with..

Everyday it is amazing to me, as a mother, how much I am enjoying the littlest things. At this stage of Miles’s life there are so many wonderful new things to be amazed about everyday. He has just become very clingy. Once I get home for the evening I can’t leave his sight until I close his bedroom door. Which doesn’t bother me at all. I miss him enough to oblige his every request. He was more than happy to help me make cookies while he had an evening snack. We sang and danced and talked as the cookies baked and right at that moment I realized : THIS is what fills me with joy. Cookies baking in the oven, my son enjoying real food. We are happy, we are healthy and most importantly, we have fresh baked cookies.

Although one thing does still bring me more joy that fresh baked cookies.

The love these two have developed for each other.

I don’t even get mad when Miles feeds his whole tray of Chex to the dog.

It makes him laugh and brings him joy.
That I will never take away from him.

    I too have discovered that a clingy young'un also is a little aggravating… but then I find how much I've warmed to it, and now I can't do without mine! =)
