Im pretty sure that the all day long snuggles and play that Sam’s clinginess demanded today straight up bathed my brain in oxytocin because by the time I laid him down a few minutes ago I was blissful with renewed wonder and love for my sweet baby boy. The same baby boy who didn’t let me pee or eat or use the remote with my hands (yay for feet!) for hours on end is the recipient of a ridiculous amount of mommy love. Babies are little tricksters. Sam was smirking the whole time I ate my dinner while sitting at the foot of his swing because he knew he was the boss. And I found it amusing.
