Night Time Routine

Sam has been pretty clingy lately. I don't know if it's his age or if he has an inkling that baby Max will soon be here. As the day grows dim, he periodically asks me through the night, "Mommy, is it playtime?" It's like he wants to confirm that the day isn't over quite yet. We all enjoy the fun times after his bath when he smells of baby lotion and fresh shampoo. He loves to color, run around banging on his musical instruments, climbing on mommy and daddy, but most of all reading. When the clock finally strikes the hour to get in the bed, he starts to fall apart. Lately, it's been a nightmare trying to leave the room. As soon as we say good night, he says, "Mommy! Don't leave me! Lay down with me!" He does the same to daddy if he's in the room. Tonight, he grabbed Mike's arm and hugged it tight to his chest. Hopefully, this is just a phase, but we LOVE those precious moments of reading before bedtime. Here's a few pics of my two loves...
