On February 6, our family celebrated the first of I pray many birthdays to come for our sweet boy. My girlfriends kept telling me that there is just something about a sweet baby boy. That the bond between a boy and his mama is just different. And oh, how right they were. I’ve had 365 days to get use to being a “boy mom”, 365 days to change diapers, 365 days to kiss little boy toes, 365 days to say “mama loves you.”
I’ve had time to learn new things about having a baby boy. Like how when they shit, it cakes up on their little huevos and I’m scared to death I am of hurting him when they needed to be cleaned 😱! Or how as soon as the cold air hits them, they’ll just pee EVERYWHERE!
But truthfully, with exception of a couple months of sleepless nights, life with this little boy has been awesome! He’s brought this family so much joy. Hails and him have bonded and she has been the biggest help with him too. And I cannot even begin to tell you how wonderful Nick has been in his role as daddy and husband. Has everyday been rainbow and sunshine? No. Not by a long shot. But this boy makes my heart swoon and has me telling God thank you everyday for his many blessings!
