Hugo went on a 2 night trip away with his grandparents this weekend. It was a moment of pride in how he had no fear in leaving us behind, but also a moment of fear that he now has to, to a small degree, fend for himself in this big ol’ world without us always there to protect him.
He did good though! Had a ball actually! And the long cuddles on his return were absolute pure, precious, beautiful, blissful nourishment for my entire everything.
He’s now a boy though. It’s official – the baby is gone, but we’re embracing rather than lamenting, the next chapter in this little legend’s life.
