We have to remind him constantly about asking for something politely - that's what this age is all about, afterall.
Most of the time he manages to get out "May peez have ________?"
One night a few weeks ago shortly after he moved into his big boy bed and could get up on his own during the night, I heard the shuffle of his little footsteps coming down the hall to our room.
Soon, there he was, at my beside.
And his sweet little voice in the night: "Mama, may have hold you?"
And my heart melted right then and there.
