Today, my son is 10 months old.
The weeks are flying by, even though some of the sleepless days seem to last for an eternity. It feels like I’ve been his mother for an entire lifetime, even though it hasn’t even been one whole year yet.
My sweet boy has taught me so much in his 10 months here on Earth. He has taught me patience, a virtue that I have never had before. He has shown me a love that I never knew existed. People always say they never truly felt true love until they had a child, and I 100% agree with that.
Motherhood is the biggest blessing in my life, but has also been the most trying thing that I have ever gone through. Everyone’s experience through parenting is different, and you never know how it will be until you’re in the thick of it. I try to think I’m doing a good job, but it is the hardest job I’ve ever had. But at the end of the day, when I come home from work, or wake him up from his nap, and I see that smiling face shining up at me, with a huge grin that reaches up to both of his beautiful brown eyes, I know that it is worth the sleepless nights, the seemingly never ending laundry, the endless shhhhh’s and lullabies I have to sing when he just won’t sleep.
I can’t believe we’re already almost to one year, little one. I wish I could capture every second of your life, so I can always remember these precious moments while you’re small.
I will cherish every second of you being little.
