pumpkin

Hudson, a letter to you from your mommy.

Sweet baby boy, you have now shared your world with Daddy and I for six weeks now. Six weeks ago you were put in my arms and forever I wish I could hold you there. It feels like we've known you our whole lives and further makes me realize how richly blessed I am to be your mother.

If I sit and just think about how much love we have for you sweet tiny, my heart aches and I cry. I cry knowing that I will love you to the ends of the earth and protect you precious baby, from anything and everything that I can.

We sometimes just lay with you and study you knowing that you were made just for us. We know no love greater.

I tell you every morning to please stop growing because you are turning into such a big boy and mommy isn't ready yet, to let your squishy newborn self go. You held your head up today for a couple of minutes so you could get a good look at your Daddy and flash him your beautiful smile that we finally are getting to see...and what a smile you have baby, it makes our whole day to even get one from you.

You are "talking" to us now, and will "talk" back when we approach you. Our conversations are always my favorite, and our house seems more a home now that I can hear you babbling from the other room.

Last night I laid you in your crib and couldn't believe that for so many months I would stand at that very same place wondering who you were and what you were like. I longed to be your Mommy and now that I am, I am overwhelmed with gratitude and thankfulness for the gift He has given us in you.

My favorite time of day right now is at night, right after your bath when you smell so "baby" and it's time to eat one last time. I rock you in the dark and sing to you...

you are my sunshine
my only sunshine
you make me happy when skies are gray
you'll never know dear
how much i love you
please don't take
my sunshine away
