My baby is only 2 years old, but she's already wanting her own independence. Oh, the days when I would rock her to sleep...then the days where I would rock her while reading books and singing before bed. But, now she wants to sit on the ottoman or lay on the floor with a pillow while I sit lonesome in the rocking chair.
"Baby, you wanna sit in Mama's lap?" I say.
"No, I sit here." replies my rascally Scamp.
Today we went swimming. She loves her turtle ring float, but she let me carry her around the pool for awhile. She didn't even realize I was getting my snuggles in. I'll take what I can get because before long she'll be swimming away from me.
