…..to all of you who are and to all of you who will be. I love being a mommy. Every moment of every day he makes me smile. He has recently started running and hugging me so hard around the neck it is like a choke hold. Then there are the moments he walks up and plants a slobbery wet kiss right on my lips. I love to hear him run though the house yelling ma-ma-ma or his arms raised high in the air “up(u) up(u)”. (Not sure why he adds the short u sound.)
There is just something amazing as I see him grow to think that 18+ months ago he was this tiny little bundle wrapped in a blanket, wrinkly, and red. 9 months before that he was a little bitty dot on an ultrasound machine. Pretty sure the first time I saw him he was a speck of dust on the screen, but when the doctor printed out the picture it was still there.
Please walk down memory lane with me.
