Luc's Hands

Sitting on the couch in my new familiar position of baby on lap and bottle in hand; my son has fallen asleep in my arms again. The practical side of me tells me to get up, put him in his bed, and not hold him too long. I've been told more than once since I've had him that I'm spoiling him and will soon regret it. Looking around the apartment I can't help but see everything there is for me to do. The laundry is piling up, I haven't eaten breakfast yet, and there are so many calls to return. His warm little body is keeping me warm and I think to myself, "the hell with it" and snuggle into the couch with my little baby.

I pull the bottle out his mouth and look at his perfectly relaxed face, his mouth is slightly open, and a little formula mixed with drool sits on his lower lip. I smile when I realize that he gripped my fingers with his hands while eating, as if to say that I shouldn't go too far with his bottle. Looking at his little fingernails that are in desperate need of trimming, I wonder, what will these hands do? Will they someday pen a world-renowned literary masterpiece? Will he find a cure for cancer? Will he play piano and dazzle millions with his talent? Maybe, but for now, I'll just let him hang on to me.
