I don’t have any funny stories to share today. I just want to share my gratitude.
The way I feel about Jacob is beyond words. He has changed us.
He makes us more patient, more kind, more considerate. He reminds me every day why I’m here.
I feel like I was put on this earth to be his mama. I know that there is and will be more to my life, but right now, nothing else seems to matter.
I consistently find myself lying on the floor next to him when I know I “should” be doing dishes. My favorite thing is just staring at him. Everything else can wait. He keeps growing and growing and I feel like if I blink, I’ll miss something. So I don’t intend to blink.
He’s completely charming. His little sounds, his little smiles, his little sneezes and yawns and coughs and coos… It’s overwhelming.
Usually I can write songs about stuff that makes me feel so much, but I’ve been having a hard time putting the way I feel about him into words. It’s unlike anything I’ve ever experienced.
I am so grateful for this little man. Even though he is currently pooping in his diaper, you know, the one I JUST changed.
