my little tag

sometimes i have to remember to make each moment last. each moment with micah, each moment with tag & crew, each moment with a piece of cheesecake..ok. i admit it. i love dessert. especially cheesecake. but back to my sweet little tag.

when tag was a baby, i never thought he was going to be a cuddler. i was envious of all my friends with cuddly babies--you girls know who you are!! :) but then God blessed us with crew. that baby would make anyone want a baby. stat. so sweet and cuddly. just perfect. then around 2 years old, all of a sudden i noticed how tag was always sitting right next--or on top of me if we were on the couch, sitting on the floor, etc. he HAS to be touching some part of my body. at times i was like--really? personal space! but then i started to realize what i thought i never would. i think his love language is physical touch! really?! the baby who hated to be cuddled? yes. my little tag is a cuddler. each morning, we sit on the couch and he snuggles up right next to me. he even lets me put my arm around him and he nestles in even closer. my favorite time with tag is in the morning. after baby crew goes down for a nap, it's time for tag and mommy time. we watch his favorite shows and cuddle. i never knew i would get to enjoy these sweet moments with this child!

he's the child who will test me (i know they all will) but the one who knows just what buttons to push. he's a little becca. or "becca jrunior" as micah puts it :)  but each little moment like that makes me forget all about yelling at him for doing the same thing over and over. he's such a sweet little guy. i love my tag!

and wouldn't you know? as i sit here and type, he is cuddled up next to me/half laying on top of me the whole time playing on the tablet as baby crew is upstairs for his morning nap (must be nice!)  what a great way to start my day!

have a wonderful weekend everyone!



  1. I think the same thing about Peyton. She's really not a cuddler right now, but I sure how that changes!

  2. LOL! I know exactly what you mean; except it's reversed at the Prior home. Reed (first born) is my cuddle bug and Hudson (lil' bro) is my Mr Independent, stubborn, button pusher. Hudson is 19 months and has just recently started sitting on our laps. It's short lived but we LOVE those few minutes :)
    Fantastic job on the pictures and blogging Becca! I love your updates!
