Blessed To Be Your Mommy

JJ's sleeping so that means I should be too. But, I'm not. Instead of getting much needed rest, I'm (once again) blogging. Not that I didn't try to sleep. I tossed and turned for a while and decided to get up and give it another try a little later on.
We took some pictures at church today. They turned out pretty good so I thought I'd share. I did a little bit of creative editing (obviously).

As I sit here looking at these pictures, I can't help but think how blessed I am. God has given my Husband and me this amazing, beautiful child and has allowed me to be his Mother. JJ, you have been out of my tummy and in my arms for a little over 9 months now. It's amazing how quickly time flies. It only seems like yesterday that your Father and I found out that I was pregnant and a little was one going to join our family. My time with you has been incredible! Every moment has been priceless. As I hold you, I try to memorize every tiny detail. I don't want you to grow up so quickly. I want you to be my baby boy forever. You came into this world and promptly took over my heart. I will never forget the moment I met you and the love that immediately washed over me. It was such a precious and private moment. The bond between Mother and Son was instant and overwhelming. I know now that the love between a Mother and her child can not compare to anything else on this earth. My sweet boy, I am thankful you are my Son and I look forward to watching you grow into a godly man. I love you! - Mommy

That picture of you, when your son was newborn, has always captured my attention...simply b/c there appears to be a small tear near your eye.

Definitely love! You're fortunate to have a son, and I can see that it will be a fun life!

You are correct. There are tears in my eyes. It is one of my favorite pictures. I didn't even know it was being taken at the time but I'm so glad it was because it is a reminder of the emotion of that moment.
