4 years ago he changed my life forever

18 Sep

I’ll never forget the moment I became a mom. 

Even though I was manic beyond belief by the time I finally got to hold him for the first time and for the entire four weeks following his birth, I still somehow knew how incredibly different my life was going to be now that he had arrived.

He made me want to be a better person. He gave my life purpose. He made us a family. He made my heart explode with love every time I held him to my chest.

Little Man, your Mama loves you more than anything in the whole world.

Over these past four years you have become such an inquisitive fire-cracker of a preschooler who challenges me to the core each and every day.

And I wouldn’t have it any other way.

Your laugh makes me smile and within seconds I am laughing right along with you.

Your energy keeps me motivated to run along with you.

Your eyelashes make me so incredibly jealous.

I love the way you protect and love on your baby sister.

I get goosebumps when I see how happy you are when you’re in the water. You are such a fish.

You are so passionate about fire trucks and fire fighters that I wouldn’t be surprised at all if you become one someday.

Having you in my life is one of the most magical miracles I have ever experienced.

Singing you Twinkle, Twinkle every night these past four years is my favorite way to end the day.

In one hour you turn four.

Happy 4th Birthday, Little Man. I love you to the moon and back.

    Isn’t it wonderful to be able to be in a place where you appreciate your kids so much?! I am glad you are there my friend.

      Yes, it truly is. I had an idea for a new post on the drive to my son’s preschool this afternoon with both kiddos in the back seat silently observing all the beautiful fall foliage. Your comment definitely will help to drive this new post. Thank you, Tina. :)

    Happy birthday sweet sweet man.
    Even though we may not be well sometimes, it doesn’t mean our hearts stop loving or feeling love.
    Kids are amazing.
