Precious MOMents

It is just amazing to me how much peace my son brings me in the simplest moments. I have spent the day solo with Ollie and have been filled with so much joy. Now that we have found a nice daily groove together our days are so wonderful. Here is a list of my very favorite mom-ents.

  1. When I walk into his room in the morning and he smiles really big when he hears my voice.

  1. Getting my lil guy to smile and "tell me stories" (coo) in the long check out line at the grocery. Everything and everyone melts away... I could stand there forever listening to his stories.

  1. Smelling and folding his tiny little clothes.

  1. Kissing his delicate baby toes.

  1. When my son is napping peacefully in my arms.

  1. Playtime brings us both so many smiles and laughs.

  1. When I'm bathing my baby he just stares at me with a content smile while I soap him up. It’s our time.

  1. Saying “nite-nite” prayers with my baby.

  1. Rocking Ollie to sleep, his soft sweet lavender smelling head tucked under my neck.

  1. Leaning over Ollie's crib after putting him down for the night, staring in amazement that he is MY perfect beautiful baby boy!

  1. Sneaking in to check on him for the 10th time and listening to his beautiful breath.

I love being a mommy! I bitched the whole way through pregnancy and I would probably bitch all the way through it again, but my son was so more than worth ever single minute! I have never in my life known so much peace and happiness.
