As I am getting close to having a baby my thoughts have turned a lot to this little guy who currently is my baby. I keep thinking in my mind he will only be the littlest for just a few more days… Oh how I love this little boy. These pictures were taken when he was 6 months old (He is 18 months old now). I remember seeing this Picture after it was taken and thinking how much I loved it, there is just a short time where you mean EVERYTHING to them, and in his world at that moment I meant everything to him. They trust and love you so completely at that age and so I say savor those short times where you mean everything to them. Every moment counts and every minute matters. I rocked him for a moment before I put him to bed tonight and I enjoyed just holding him and snuggling him. Being a mother is the hardest most rewarding thing I have ever done in my entire life. I can not really put into words or adequately express how much I dearly love being a mom. I am so far from perfect at it but I love it with all my heart. My 7 almost 8 little people mean the world to me and even though sometimes I just want to box their ears I can’t imagine my life without any one of them. They make my life amazing and crazy all at the same time and I love it. So today embrace the craziness and cherish the short times where you mean everything to them and if they are now 15 or older and you only mean everything to them for a very short part of the day, embrace it and be grateful they need you, because really they still need you all the time, mother’s are irreplaceable, no one loves your children like you do.
