Me: you need to say a prayer, I'm glad to say it with you.
CH: but I needed you [this is one of his most used phrases right now]
Me: i'm here lets say a quick prayer. Are you going to say it with me or just me
CH: just you [as he rolled over and snuggled up with Maurice]
I said a quick prayer for sweet and good dreams and restful sleep. \
CH: you not tired. don't go to momma's bed
Me: I am very tired and you need to go back night night so that we can get up and play in the morning
CH: just hold me two minutes [this is also a newer request over the past week....especially since not having passey. but with me growing it is hard for me to hold him, as much as I really want to. So I just snuggled up and pulled him as close as I could to me to 'hold' him]
Me: let me hold you laying down for just two minutes and then I have to go back to my bed.
CH: I not want my door closed
Me: I'll leave it open for you.
I laid with him for a few minutes and then told him to go night night and that God was with him always and loves him so very much and then I headed back to bed. We both slept soundly until almost 7am this morning.
Love this little boy more than I ever could have imagined. Such a sweet little man. It is a constant prayer of mine that Collier would have a heart for God and that there is never a day that he doesn't know Jesus' love for him.
