My sweet boy

As much as I hate being waken up a night...seriously I need my sleep...but lately Corbin has been "needing" us at night. I go into his room and he immediately stops crying but wants to get out of his crib. I am trying not to make any bad habits so I know I have to be careful. One night I was so tired (and sick) that I took him out and we laid on the floor together. He is OBSESSED with pillows and always wants to lay on one. But he now will lay down but then start to sing a little bit like.."aaa" and then say please. Which he is asking me to sing to him. I think it is the sweetest thing...because most people know I can not sing at all. But I have always sang to Corbin to calm him down and he now has learn to find comfort in it. My go to songs are: You Are My Sunshine, I am a Child of God, I Love to See the Temple, and recently A Child's Prayer. Last night I didn't want to take him out of his crib so I just said you need to lay down and then I will sing to you..he immediately did and just laid there as I sang. If I stopped singing he would look up and make sure I was there and then would ask me to sing again. As much as I am so tired it melts my heart...that is the only reason why I stayed in there longer than 40 minutes and laid on his ground and just sang to him in the middle of the night. The things we do for our sweet children.
Also one day when I was feeling so sick I couldn't really do anything besides lay on the couch. I feel so bad because he wants me to play with him so bad. I was on the verge of tears and he just came up to me and gave me a kiss. I smiled and he gave me another one and then look at me and smile and then give me a few more. It was the sweetest he was trying to take care of me. Corbin kisses are the best. It sweet moments like this that I never want to forget! :)


  1. Awe . . . I'm not so quick to be grateful for mid-night awakings and definitely wouldn't sing for that long. It's a good thing Christopher's usually awake if our kids wake up ;)

  2. He is so sweet. It is true, being a mom is the best. Even when you're exhausted!
