I am in disbelief how much I love this child. I know the pregnancy started out rough but there are days I actually miss being pregnant and feeling him inside (not to mention how safe I knew he was inside the womb: he was sick the last few days with a cold and is just now feeling better). I was loving being a mom to older kids before but now that I have a newborn baby, I want to relish in he moment of having a baby. I want to just enjoy him and not wanting to rush his growing up. I just want to live in the now, live in the moment. I am done trying to rush my kids growing up, waiting for my life to begin, waiting to "start living". This IS my life and I AM living it. I am a mother and I am loving every minute of it. I can't believe how easily this baby has slipped into our hearts and fit into our lives.
I am just so in awe of this baby. Everyday is a new day with him and a beautiful day at that. He is just so stinking cute and everything he does makes me smile. I am taking it all in and loving every minute of it: the sleepless nights, the mountain of poopy diapers, the many times he's peed on me, the nursing sessions (which have gotten so much easier now that we have established some kind of routine) and even his crying. And his brothers and sister are so in love with him as well. They just love the new addition to our family. I cannot put into words just how much more wonderful my life has gotten with my miracle baby boy. Here's to life as a mommy of 4.
