I can hardly believe that it’s been six months since we welcomed you into the world on a Thursday night, the day after your due date. You initially gave me a fright as you took a moment to cry but now I know that it’s because you were probably too busy looking around taking everything in and without a worry. You are always so curious and calm. I know you will have plenty to teach mama about “just relaxing and keeping calm”.
The first time I saw you and learned you were a little baby boy, I was so in love. It’s true what they say, a love like no other.
As I held you for the first time, my heart immediately felt complete and I never even knew I was missing anything. You, my baby boy, are life’s best surprise I have ever been blessed with.
Every time I lay you down to sleep, I silently pray for your future. I wonder who you will become, what your interests will be and what your laughter will sound like.
I love you, Baby boy, with my whole heart, and I look forward to knowing the strong, ambitious, free-thing individual you will become.
