Doing nothing and feeling good about it

Yesterday I had the best day. I decided that I was NOT going to feel guilty or worry about all the things that I should or could be doing. The laundry could wait. The house could wait to be cleaned. The errands could be done another day. All those things could wait. I never really can get all that stuff done but I'm always thinking about it and wishing I could. Not yesterday.
I was going to relax and enjoy some snuggle time with Max and not think of things I could or should be doing.
there is always something we could, should, or need to do for many reasons. But today I was going to sit in the rocker with Max asleep on my chest and watch a movie. Guilt free and worry free.
It was wonderful! When I had to get up to go to the bathroom or get something to eat. I would lay Max in is bouncer and then instead of thinking, While he is sleeping and content in his bouncer, What could I hurry and get done. NO!! I picked him right back up and put him back on my chest and thought this is what is really important. I just enjoyed snuggling him while I watched a movie, T.V, and took a nap. It was awesome!! The rest of the world could go on with the mundane. I was going to enjoy this time.
I always enjoy snuggling with Max but it's even better to do with a clear mind and just enjoy doing NOTHING!! Because a lot of times things don't get done because we don't have time, We're too exhausted, Or we have other people to take care of. I let it all go. It felt awesome! Thanks Max for helping me to enjoy what really is important.

Max is also back to taking some nice naps during the day:)

(In the bouncer just for a second then back to snuggling with me:)

Here's a few pictures of the "photo shoot" from yesterday. I can't stop taking pictures of him. So expect to see a lot more. In these photos you can see his eyes are turning more blue.
