Tonight, after getting home from playing with friends, Sam rushed around the house, turning all the lights off. Except the Christmas tree. He then pronounced that it was time to “watch a dark movie for Sam.” He chose the new Christmas special “Prep and Landing” (which is adorable, by the way). He climbed up on the couch and directed Rob and I to either side of him, so he could sit in the nest between us. We were a bird family — Mommy, Daddy, and Baby Bird — watching a Christmas special, snuggling together. I never want to forget those little moments. Of tiny bodies nestled between big bodies, soaking up Christmas and love and togetherness.
