The sweetest thing

What devilishness is this?


Anyone who has had kids will tell you that at some point you have that moment. The one where you are irretreivably in love with your kid. Where you have lost yourself completely and you wish you could hold onto that moment forever. I had one of those tonight getting Cooper ready for his bath. I was holding him, getting a towel out of the closet, when we were the victims of a towel avalanche. I made a squawking sound, which made Cooper laugh. A big fat belly laugh. The avalanche would not be denied, and as more towels fell to the floor, and I made more squawking noises, he laughed and laughed. I was laughing too, and he thought that was funny too. We had about 30 seconds of total, belly busting laughter. And it was magical.

If one can take a snapshot of a moment, and keep it in your heart and soul forever, that is one of those moments. I hope I never forget it.

Since I don't have any pictures of that moment to put here, I will put some from this weekend. Cooper had his first encounter with Peeps, and he was not impressed.

That is the sweetest thing ever. And I get it. The joys are so simple and unexpected. Also, he's more delish than a Peep.
