Well…I have been a Mommy for almost 9 weeks now. Being a Mom is already the craziest, most wonderful, most harrowing, most rewarding thing I’ve ever done. Only a few weeks into the Wingman’s life, I told my husband, “THIS is why we celebrate Mother’s Day….if for no other reason, it’s because of the first few weeks of life.” 🙂
I remember the day when I was looking down at our little son and I knew that I had found my calling. This is where God wants me to be. And I wouldn’t have it any other way!
There’s nothing like looking into your son’s eyes and having him look back up at you. There’s nothing like the first time he smiles and it completely melts your heart, giving you butterflies and bringing tears to your eyes. There’s nothing like hearing him giggle for the first time. There’s nothing like watching the love of your life hold your son and pretend to wrestle with him. There’s nothing like sitting next to him and having him just look at you until he slowly falls asleep, peeking every now and then as if to make sure you’re still there. There’s nothing like little baby cuddles. There’s nothing like listening to him “talk” to you.
I’m not biased…at all….but he is just the cutest little boy ever!!!
Hopefully now that we have learned somewhat of a routine I can resume blogging! 🙂
Awww, congrats! It does take a while to get into a routine (we’re still working on that here, but that’s because of school starting!) but I’m glad things are going well for you. 🙂
This makes me so happy, Bonnie! I just love you and your family so much. It feels like yesterday that we were just little girls who liked to dress up and make believe together, singing “Raindrops and Roses” when we missed each other. Now, you’re a mommy and we are both wives to wonderful men. God is SO good to have given us what He has! I love you, cousin!!!
