I can’t believe my precious little boy is a month old already! In a month life seems to have changed completely. Things that seemed so important are no longer important at all, little things that I never imagined being important suddenly are, and time seems to be going by more quickly than I ever thought possible!
A month ago, I heard the most amazing sound of my baby’s first cry as he came into this world, I watched in awe as a tiny little boy was placed on my chest, and my life hasn’t been the same since. At that moment, there was nothing that mattered to me more than my Truett Matthew and his daddy. As I looked at our baby, crying and so helpless I could not believe it was real. There was a day not so long ago that I had given up on the possibility of Matthew and I ever having a child of our own, yet God is so gracious and gives us exactly what we need in His perfect time.
I have spent the last month cherishing the precious, perfect little boy that God has blessed us with. Our days are spent snuggling, taking naps, reading books, singing songs, and a lot of times just staring at each other. I am still in awe of the fact that our boy is finally here! Each day, we fall more in love.
Daily I am astounded by the bond that we share… how even at just a few days old, he knew my voice and Matt’s voice too. When he looks at me it is like he feels he is completely safe and content. I could look at his tiny little face all day.
My sweet husband has given up sleep willingly EVERY night to help with feedings and changing diapers, and then he gets up and goes to work the next day! I am blessed beyond my wildest dreams!
Everyone tells me not to blink because if I do my baby won’t be a baby anymore… It is so true, my baby is getting bigger everyday! I am trying so hard to soak up every moment. I don’t want to miss anything! I enjoy every sound, every sneeze, every funny face. Each one means more to me than I ever thought possible.
Being a mom is the best….
In the last few weeks I have fallen in love you with you more than I ever thought possible. Your sweet sounds, your snuggles, everything about you is amazing! I love that when I hold you and you are content you purr just like a kitten! I love watching you enjoy your bath time so much! You are an incredible gift and you mommy is so happy that you are here! I pray that as you grow and change that you will keep your sweet, happy disposition, that you will know how much you are loved not only by your mommy and daddy, but also how much your Heavenly Father loves you! I hope you will find joy in knowing your Savior! My little love bug, sometimes I look at you and still have to remind myself that you aren’t a dream! I love you more than you will ever know. I can’t wait to watch you grow up!
All my love,
