From January, shortly after returning home from holidays.
This mornings cuddles were the best. Today is just what we needed, slow, pajamas, no plans, and no to do list. I started a 7 day meditation practice three days ago, a guided 10 minute session and it's been so good, if only it could become a daily habit. It sets my day up for calm and peace, and gentle reminders to just breathe and slow down. This mornings session was late and with Ethan, when he saw me on the bed he wanted up. And at first he tried interrupting me several times, but I remained as focused as I could, and eventually he saw that I was relaxing, so he laid down in my lap playing with his hair. We took this picture and a host of others after, it was such a special moment. I hope through modeling peace he will begin to understand its meaning as I have.
My baby, my love, Mr. Ethan. Currently making a mess, playing and eating his really really late lunch. Winter is a time for slowing down, and you have taught me this. Now that vacation is over, the next few months are down time, before the spring bursts through with renewed energy.
Peace & love
