So after downing the cocktails, and watching in anticipation as the Momma-to-be opened her gifts full of pink-cuteness, I was getting a little emotional. Babies are amazing. I mean they start out as nothing, and right there in your belly grows a little human, complete with ten fingers and ten toes.
My son is the most amazing thing I've ever created in my life. I am so completely in love with him. He makes me laugh and brings out a side of me I've never known I had. I understand that mother's love thier children, but sometimes I think that maybe I may be over-the-top-crazy about mine. Sometimes I love him so much it actually feels like my heart will explode.
So the other night while I was rocking him and singing him his lullabies, he did the cutest thing in the world. While resting his head on my shoulder, he put his two little hands on either side of my face, picked his head up and looked directly in my eyes for a moment. With his little hands holding my face, I looked into his blue eyes and for a moment, the world made sense. He put his head back down, this time on my other shoulder and I held him tight. It was one of those moments that make all of the sleepless nights, the tantrums in the store, and the exploding diapers worth it.
He is amazing. I am so in love!
