It May Be Harder For Me
I miss Sam sitting in my lap.
He has held and smelled my hair while nursing or taking his pacifier ever since he could grab hold of it. Since he gave up his pacifier, he won't sit in my lap. I understand. He associates sitting there with the pacifier, so it is easier for him to just not snuggle at all. Yesterday, I asked him for a hug, and I got a once second one. Last night when I was lying down with him at bedtime, he flipped and flopped for 20-30 minutes, then he ever so slowly inched closed to me. I think he was trying to get close enough to smell my hair.....he finally fell asleep.
If I had known last week when he got in my lap with his pacifier, his face buried in my hair, that it was the last time, I would have held him a little longer.
I hope learns soon that he can still be close to me without being reminded of his pacifier. How long do you think it will take?
