The other day we were just relaxing in the kitchen and Hampton decided to snuggle up on my lap, as he usually does.
What was different this time was how he began to stare at me. It wasn't the look of "where's my dinner" or "let's play" or "I'm bored". But rather he was staring at me so intently, as if to really study or memorize every feature on my face. It felt like he was really trying to "see me". Does that make any sense?
Dave managed to capture Hampton's 'stare' in the following photo:
I swear he sat and stared at me like that for a good 15 minutes. Then eventually he climbed up even further on me and just wanted to snuggle up real close.
I guess the only way I can explain the moment we shared was that he was really jonesin' for some Mummy love? xo
