All the Sun For You

A mom, two boys, a husband, and a whole lot of adventure!

My New View


When I was weaning Matthew, I never thought that there would be things that would come from it that would make me thankful that he’s weaned. I thought that I would just miss everything about nursing and that that certain closeness would be gone.

But something entirely new, and spectacular, has emerged. Matthew, who would only cuddle while nursing, now does this:

And this:

And this:

I have a snuggler!

I am typing this on my phone as he naps on my chest. And this is what I’m looking at:

When he is drifting off to sleep now in the rocker, he’ll randomly pop up to kiss me. LOVE!!!! I can bury my nose into his hair and smell his fresh baby scent. And I can flutter his eyelashes with my nose as I sing softly into his ear, helping him drift to sleep. Right now, he just stirred and grabbed me tightly before coo-ing himself back to sleep. We couldn’t/didn’t do any of these things while we were nursing.

I’m in heaven!

Hi, there, I’m Courtney. I never planned to stay home with my kids, but I got sucked into motherhood when my first baby came into our lives after years of infertility and multiple rounds of IVF. His brother followed closely behind, something we didn’t plan on after having such a rough road with achieving parenthood the first time around. My boys are IVF cycle twins, conceived on the same day but born two years and one day apart (they were both transferred on the same day in October, but with two years between them). My boys are the best of friends and my husband is a terrific husband, father, and most importantly… friend. He fully supported my desire to stay home (“I just wanted it to be your idea and not mine, I totally want you to stay home and raise our kids!”) and encourages me in everything I do. I am a lover of projects, spreadsheets, fitness, healthy cooking and eating, crafts, selling my stuff on FB (HA!), and the outdoors. If I’m active, I’m pretty darn happy!

  1. I am SO jealous! A snuggle bunny… I WANT! Adorable.

    And I don’t mean to alarm you, but I think we are wearing the same shirt today. OBVS.

  2. Snuggly boys are the best 🙂 Enjoy!

  3. Oh my gosh I am so jealous that he is such a cuddle bug!!! I’m lucky if Chloe let’s me hold her for 3 seconds.

  4. Love it!!! I love snuggly babies! 🙂 Both of mine are big time snugglers, and I feel so lucky! Even when I have a giant sized 5 year old and a chunky 10 month old sitting on my lap at the same time, and I can barely breath (lol) I just sigh and think that it’s amazing that my arms are so full… Love love love.

  5. Oh my gosh, I love it!! I so so so hope that Sofi turns into a snuggler! Right now she only is really snuggly when she’s really sleepy.

  6. How sweet is that????
