"Wake up, Mommy..."

I awoke from a nap this morning with two chubby, little hands grabbing my nose and cheeks.  Still half asleep, I opened my eyes to see my precious little baby turned completely onto her side, reaching as far as she could to get to my face.  "Wake up, Mommy..." is what she wanted to say.  :-)  I smiled at her and she laughed back.  I love my daughter.

When Emma is sleepy, she plays with my chin.  When she is starting to wake up and she's near me, she grabs for my face.  I don't know why, but it's our thing.  We like to have our faces close together.  I think this morning was an, "I know I woke you up at 2am, but I'm worth it" type of face grabbing.

Cherish these little moments with your wee ones while they still enjoy picking your nose.  :-)

  10. Sounds like a perfect way to wake up to me!!!!!!!

  11. I already miss that stage and my little girl is only 10 months. I remember one morning when I thought I would give her a bottle while I was getting started working for the day. She put her little hand on my cheek and pulled my face towards her. Say to me, "Mommy I am only going to be this size today. Tomorrow I am going to be 5 years old and you are going to miss this, cherish it now." Oh how God works through those precious little hands.

    Loved your post. (ps I grabbed your button)
