This morning I felt like I was having an out of body experience.
I can't even explain it really.
All I know is that I was really happy, humble, and grateful all at once.

The morning hours are some of my favorite times with Kameron.
He's well rested, so happy, and just loves life.
This morning when everyone had gone to work I finished up the dishes while he babbled away in his high chair and then we migrated on over to the family room to play with his toys.
After many attempts to crawl and opening and closing the gator's mouth 5,694 times he started to get tired.
When he gets tired he buries his face into my leg and whines.
It's part pitiful and part hysterical.
So I picked him up, sat down on the couch, and held him.
He then plopped that thumb of his in his mouth, snuggled on into my chest, and was...(wait for it)...still.
I was in pure shock.
He NEVER cuddles like that anymore.
He has become far too interested in the world to be inhibited by snuggles.
Once the shock wore off I was in pure heaven.
I never wanted it to end.
While we were snuggling Mindy Gledhill's chorus to her song "Hourglass"was on repeat in my head.

"When you reach for the stars,
don't forget who you are.
And please don't turn around and grow up way too fast.
See the sand in my grasp?
 From the first to the last, every grain becomes a memory of the past.
Oh, life's an hourglass.
Life's an hourglass."

It was quite literally one of my favorite moments in my entire life.
After about 10 mins he was about to lose it and was begging to be put to sleep.
So then I got to nurse my sweet babe to dreamland and all the while thank my Father in Heaven for sending me such a perfect little human to love.

Kameron Mark really is my favorite little dude.
