"Security is mostly a superstition. It does not exist in nature, nor do the children of men as a whole experience it. Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing. " -Helen Keller

Perfect Moment Monday: He's Still My Baby

Lori over at Weebles Wobblog says that "Perfect Moment Monday is more about noticing a perfect moment than about creating one. Perfect moments can be momentous or ordinary or somewhere in between."

I'm a touchy feely person. I love hugs. I love snuggling. My boys are getting so big that I rarely get to do this anymore. Sure, I get hugs from them but it's not the same as snuggle time. Sunday night, Gabriel, who never slows down, was so tired that he not only snuggled for a long time with me but he fell asleep in my arms.It's hard to believe this precious boy, this boy who took so much struggle to bring into this world, has gotten so big...

Aaaah well, he will always be my baby and I'll treasure these moments while I still have them.

Go check out the other perfect moments at this week's Perfect Moment Monday on Weebles Wobblog.

people tell you all the time to treasure these moments, and you really have to , because it all goes by so quickly. my babies are now 14 and 17, respectively ... and that 17 year old will be graduating high school in june! he is getting the college acceptances in the mail everyday ... NYU leading the pack. and i think, i used to diaper this kid! amazing ... this thing called time. they grow up and we grow older!

What I love about moments like this is that two people are providing a perfect moment for each other.

That picture of you holding your son is one of the sweetest things I've seen. It brought tears to my eyes, because I feel this way about Oscar, and know I always will
