Warm Little Hands

Tonight, as I was putting Calvin back to sleep when he woke up, I suddenly remembered the time when he was just a couple of months old. We used to do all sorts of things to get him to fall asleep – carry him for long periods until he is in deep sleep, pat him, jiggle etc etc. He’s a light sleeper like me so getting him to sleep well was quite difficult. One of the things we did was to put him down when he was all drowsy then lay be hand on his chest. I remember one night, he started to put his hand on mind. It was really warm and very small and soft. Even now, when I hold his little hands, I marvel at how this little man is mine. It gives me a very nostalgic feeling as well, because I used to hold my moms hands when we go out even when I was a teenager.
