You know those moments that you want to find a way to preserve? You know they won't last forever, you know that is part of what makes them special, but you want to capture them all the same? There is a moment each morning now, where both children join me in bed when they wake. First Emerson for a feed and a cuddle. Then Cohen, who crawls in between us; always the center of attention. We snuggle beneath the blankets. I stroke Cohen's hair. Cohen kisses Emerson's chubby rosey cheeks. Emerson's little hands reach out and grasp at the two of us. Sometimes catching at Cohen's nose, or a lock or my hair, or the edge of the blanket. She smiles, chirps and coos. Cohen laughs and chats. He says "love you Mama, this much" and holds his arms out as wide as he can.

And in that moment, before the day urges us out of bed, there is just the three of us and my heart is full of love and joy, no matter how tired I may be. These moments I want always to remember.
