This morning, one of my moms at work came in with just her baby son (two older daughters were at camp or running amok in the streets or something). For the first time since I’ve met him, he wasn’t in his stroller, and he was wide awake. I reached to hold him, and mom was hesitant. Apparently, he FREAKS out when just about anyone but her holds him. Not only did he reach for me, but he nuzzled me, and would have gone to sleep if she hadn’t needed to leave.
He LOVED me! He cuddled me, hugged me, played with my necklace and my hair, and smiled and smiled and smiled.
When I met him for the first time, he was asleep, and I told him that we were going to be best friends, and he didn’t even know it yet.
Today, he apparently remembered what I told him. 🙂
Oh Nicholas . . . you and me forever, baby. 🙂
“Martha and Nicholas. Best friends for life.”
