Wake-Up Call

Caden woke up in the middle of the night during a thunderstorm.  He usually sleeps right through them, but I heard him cry out around 4:30 a.m.  I sat with him on the glider and held and rocked him for a while.  He's still little enough to snuggle in my lap, and he loves being rocked.  I love that.  I made sure he was okay, and then I gently put him back in his bed and covered him up.  I tip-toed to the door, and just as I was about to leave, I heard him say, "Mommy!"  I walked over and whispered, "What, baby?" and I saw his little hand go up in the air.  It was dark, but in the glow of the nightlight, and as I leaned in a little closer, I could see he was doing the sign for "I love you."  

As exhausted as I am right now, that little wake up call was the sweetest thing ever.
