That Sound You Just Heard?

That was the sound of my heart exploding.
Because this gummy smile was directed at me. The sleepless nights, the sore nipples, the stretch marks...all worth it. I barely remember the pain of labor because my son, MY SON, smiled at me. Can you believe that chin? Oh the pudge!
Sometimes I am completely overwhelmed by it all. I don't deserve this. I have done nothing in my life that warrants the pure joy that I have been given.
I am so blessed. It is so easy for me to forget this simple fact when bills start to pile up, dishes don't get washed, dirty clothes litter the floor, and arguments start.
I am so blessed to have these two in my life.

  2. He is simply adorable, baby modeling in the near future?

    I never had a chance to comment on the other post, but if I did, I would have asked for MORE baby photos. Thanks for posting them.

    I can happily go off to work now...

  4. Life can certainly be overwhelming sometimes...the good and the bad. I often catch myself looking at my two "boys" and thinking how lucky I am.
    Congratulations on your beautiful family and your ability to truly appreciate it :)
