He's Still Her Baby

Scott was a bit sick in the night following our family Christmas party. He woke up at 4am and couldn't go back to sleep. He kind of wanted to go play with his new Lego downstairs and he was fidgety.

When this sort of thing happens, Scott struggles to lie still long enough to fall asleep. Finally, R took Scotty in her arms and rocked him to sleep like a baby. I know it has been frustrating for her to be up in the night with him again, but I think she might have taken some satisfaction that she still has her special touch with him, even now that he's almost 6 years old. She can take Scotty in her arms and he's suddenly her little baby again.

I get pretty nostalgic at times, but I think this one touched her as well.
