these moments.

Today I was tickling my little Boston on my bed after he woke up, 
and I couldn't help but think of how blessed I am to have him in my life.

I started to get teary because I just felt so grateful.
I just wanted to squeeze him and love him and kiss his little chubby feet
and never ever let him go.
He just looked up at me with his big blue eyes and smiled so big --
the kind where his whole face crinkles up and his body scrunches together in total happiness.
He looked so precious in his little elmo jammies and bed hair,
and I couldn't help but say a little prayer of thanks that he is mine forever.

Sure, I have hard moments.
Moments where I wonder if I am doing it right --
this whole mom thing.
But this wasn't one of them.
This moment reminded me how precious it is to have a little one to take care of and love,
and I will always try to remember it.
Moments like these make life worth it-- and I don't ever want to let them pass by.

  1. Where's the "like" button?! I've had moments like that with Hannah, too, and it seriously makes all the poopy days disappear!
