Mother's day approaching
This is the glorious day that I became a mother. June 22, 2009. Nothing has changed me more in my life than this. On June 22, 2009, I found what I was created for, what I was made to do. I LOVE being a mom. Jack has made me love better and harder, live bigger and more purposeful. I would do anything in the world for our little son. I love washing his tiny clothes and attempting to fold them...they never stay that way. I love cleaning up the huge mess eating is now that he is starting to finger feed. I think it's adorable when he is trying to poop :) His cries, though seldom, hurt my heart each time and I love that I seem to know how to comfort him. I love his crunchy toes and small little bottom. I love how he sleeps with his butt in the air and I love that he thinks his daddy is the funniest thing in the world! I love how he reaches his short, stubby arms out to be held. I love that every single time we read a book..daily...he tries to eat it. I love his goofy smile and silly laugh. I love the way he cuddles up in my neck and seems to be completely at home. I actually miss getting up in the middle of the night for 2am feedings. I love taking care of him. I love it. I...love...it. Nothing brings me more joy or satisfaction than caring for our Jack. And I truly, can't imagine life without him. Thank you God for such a wonderful gift, for blessing Michael and I with a beautiful son. My cup truly overflows.
Happy Mother's day to all you beautiful moms!
