Its not very often, anymore, that I get to spend very much time alone- just Me and my Charlie.
After Big Sister went to bed this evening, Christopher brought a freshly bathed little man down to me, said goodbye to us both, and then headed off to work.
I sat down on the floor beside him, camera in hand.
Doesn't he look so different, so grown up, with his new haircut?
What happened to my little baby boy?
Who is this toddler?
Who is this big boy?
He watched his Daddy's every move. From the driveway, as far down the street as his eyes would follow- until the cycle disappeared in the distance.
"Cycle, cycllllllllle", he called out. Over and over again, until I repeated it back to him.
"Yes, Daddy went back to worky on his cycle", I verified.
Well what do we do now, Mom?
...I guess we've always got my firetruck.
Or, we could snuggle.
And snuggle, and snuggle, and snuggle.
But, soon snuggling with Mama just wasn't enough. Soon he needed all of his closest friends.
Puppy dog, and binky, and Lovey...
By that time- he was done.
Up the stairs we go. Time for bed.
And even though we only had half an hour of alone time with each other tonight, little man, its more than we usually get, and I will forever treasure these black and white moments...
