Today was a very special day. Today was mothers day. You made me a mom and I am so grateful for that. It is the best job in the world. We went to Beech Hill Farm up the road to see the animals, grabbed ice cream and walked around. Saying you love animals is an understatement, you get so excited when you see any animal, your little arms start flapping, you screech and giggle, and you immediately want to get down to see it up close until we’re too close and then you panic.
Motherhood means a lot to me and it is filled with every single emotion in the book. Motherhood means giving up my time, body, sleep, space and hot coffee, but what you give up is nothing in comparison to what you gain. Seeing your sweet face when you wake up in the middle of the night makes all the sleepless nights worth it, watching you learn how to put the blocks on top of each other or wiggle your body forward to get something is incredibly rewarding. You and your dad are the highlight of my days. One day if you decide to be a mother you will understand what it means to love someone with every ounce of your body, I never knew this feeling until I had you. It’s a different kind of love than I have for anyone else.
You want to crawl but you still just freeze when you are on all fours, you have zero interest in baby food but full interest in whatever your dad and I are eating, and you definitely make your two teeth work for you! You still wake up to nurse every 2-3 hours, but I would by lying if I didn’t admit to loving the cuddles throughout the night. Your smile lights up the room and everyone notices.
Keep growing & learning sweet girl.
