...being a mom...

We all have our own opinions on what being a mom means, but fortunately for the past 7 weeks, I have learned for myself what it means to be a mom.
Being a mom means...
putting yourself last
opening your heart completely
crying more than you ever knew you could
EVERYTHING makes you cry
learning what innocence looks like
there is ALWAYS laundry to be done
MY baby will always be the cutest baby around
NOTHING my baby does can gross me out
I can sleep later
nothing can make your heart melt the way a child's smile does
you really can never take too many pictures
you finally know what it feels like to be complete

Being Parker's mom is the best thing that has ever happened to me. I was sitting there watching him sleep the other, and I wondered to myself what did I do with myself before he was around. I don't remember life without him, and NEVER do I want to know a life without him again. I ask myself everyday what did I do in my life to deserve something so perfect. I am so thankful God has blessed me with the opportunity to be this little guys mom.

...stay this little...

Your little hands wrapped around my finger
And it's so quiet in the world tonight
Your little eyelids flutter 'cause you're dreaming
So I tuck you in, turn on your favorite night light

To you, everything's funny
You got nothing to regret
I'd give all I have, honey
If you could stay like that

Oh, darling, don't you ever grow up, don't you ever grow up
Just stay this little
Oh, darling, don't you ever grow up, don't you ever grow up
It could stay this simple

I won't let nobody hurt you
Won't let no one break your heart
No, no one will desert you
Just try to never grow up, never grow up
