Comfort and Rest
Luke is teething. If there is one developmental stage I would happily skip, it's this one. The drool, the nose, the fussiness...thank goodness they don't remember it! He's always been a great sleeper, but we still have times like today when he cries out in his sleep, fussy before it's really time to get up. I love that my arms are a place of comfort to him, and that he will rock back to sleep (maybe with a dose of ibuprofen to help...). Every night I sing to him from the hymnal, and he sits, cuddled in my arms, drowsing towards sleep. Both my kids are cuddlers, and I like it. I definitely wonder if our daughter will be a cuddler, and how long it will take for her to find comfort in my arms. We'll have to take it one step at a time, but I hope it doesn't take too long.
