And one snapshot in words: J's been having trouble getting to sleep lately. I lay with him and read my book a little while. I thought he was asleep then looked over to see him gazing at me. When our eyes met he said, and i quote, ' your eyes are so beautiful'...(a few connected moments of wonder pass)...then, 'they twinkling like marbles'.
Highest of high accolade from a 2 1/2 year old who loves marbles.
He then went promptly to sleep. This is not a sentence i utter often you understand. I might type it again, just for the fun of it, i may not get to use it again.
