A most special moment

I can't believe what just happened!!! I've got tears!!!

I just put Simon in his bed and I knelt beside the bed to tuck him in. As I finished tucking him in, he grabbed both of my cheeks, said 'kiss' and pulled me in for a kiss. Then he said 'hug' and grabbed the back of my neck with both hands and pulled me in for a tight squeeze. He's never said either of those words before.

I am so in love with my boy and every day he amazes me more and more.

And this is what it means to be a mom.


  1. Oh sweetie! See, Simon was saving this for when you really, really needed it. He really is a smart cookie!!!


  2. oh yay Julia! I've got tears too, what a special moment xx

  3. how's that for a kick in the ovaries? love it!

  4. I'm so glad he's starting to talk more and it makes it even more special that he's saying sweet things. I'm really happy for you.

  5. Thanks Meghan. Simon has always been such a sweetie that I'm not surprised by his beginning to speak with such sweetness...that's just my Simon!
