When we were trying to get pregnant, I was dreaming of a family and hoped that someday I would have some kids of my own to love. Then once we did get pregnant, I was elated and immediately felt a bond with the life growing inside of me and that bond grew stronger with each ultrasound picture and kick, roll and hiccup from within. Even though I already loved our little guy before he arrived, nothing prepared me for the intensity of the love I feel for him.
Sometimes I catch myself looking at him and thinking, is this real? Is this really our baby, our son! Yes, indeed he is and I would do anything for him. How could I not when he looks at me like this and counts on me for his every need.
I mean, I am willing to give up a good nights sleep so I can sing and whisper in his ear while rocking him back to sleep
I’ve learned to enjoy my meals cold instead of warm and whenever I have a minute to shove the food in my mouth instead of eating when I am actually hungry, so I can ensure that he is fed when he is hungry and falls into a milk coma
And I will drop everything to soothe his cries because it breaks my heart to think that he may be unhappy about something
I can’t tell you what day of the week it is, or where the hours in the day go, but I can tell you he is by far my favorite snuggle buddy and there is nothing else I would rather do all day long
