baby rafa loves to be held and needs to be held! he usually doesn't sleep long when he's sleeping alone (luckily he can usually sleep by himself during the night - touchwood) but when he's sleeping in your arms, he can sleep for ages! at first i was so determined not to let him do that and would put him down everytime when he's about to fall asleep, but when you see him waking up easily and looking so insecure and frightened, you really can't resist holding him a little bit longer.... after all, as his father says, how long will he allow us to hold him?
today my parents came visit us and of course couldn't resist holding little rafa in their arms! i like this pic i took today - the hands of rafa, my mom and dad.
