Valentine's Day Photos

Even with his BiPAP mask on, you can clearly see that Nate's eyes do his talking for him...

Valentine's Day

On Valentine's Day, I would love my son to be able to give me a big hug and tell me he loves me. Or sit in my lap and cuddle with me.

Instead, I get "the look". The look is one I really can't describe. It is so intense it makes my heart melt and sometimes makes me cry. Nathan CAN give me a hug and tell me he loves me - He does it with his eyes and his soul.

That being said, I am reminded it's not important how I feel or what I need or want, it's what Nathan needs and wants. But, one thing I know is that Nathan is not lacking in the love or affection department. Trey and I never miss a chance to tell him we love him, kiss him, touch him, tell him he's the best little boy in the world and the strongest boy in the world. We couldn't be more proud of him or love him any more.

But, I have to say, it is so wonderful to get "the look" and know Nathan trusts us and loves us. And his eyes give us the biggest hugs we could ever ask for. I wouldn't trade "the look" for ANYTHING!
