This is my 100th post, so I decided to do a hundred things list. Just kidding. I tried that once. But I have been enjoying the stage Ben is in right now oh so much and thought I would jot down 10 things I am really going to miss about the baby stage when my babies are grown.
1- The little sigh babies makes after they sneeze. Oh I love love love it.
2-Snuggling- need I say more?
3-The laugh. Hearing my babies laugh brings me complete joy.
4-The smell after baths. I could sniff them FOREVER.
5-The roly-poly chubs on their legs, and their cute little butts. Only something a baby can pass off as cute.
6-The way they talk. I love the "ba-ba-ba" jibberish.
7-A sleeping baby- I love laying next to my baby and marveling at every precious feature of that face.
8-The way they hold your finger with their little hand, like they never want to let go.
9-The full body stretch when they first wake up.
10- I love when their face lights up instantly when I walk in the room, and they beam at me like I am their favorite person ever.
With that said, I am just gonna add I love being a mother. It brings me a satisfaction and joy like I never knew was possible. Thats not to mean that I dont find it frustrating sometimes. Its hard work, unbelievably hard some days, but truly the most worthwhile thing I am doing. I love these babies I have been blessed with. I honestly dont know how anyone can deny the existence of God after bringing a child into the world. Their spirits radiate with love that can only come from God. And the miraculous birth process anyway should testify that life is God given and so extremely precious. Thats what I feel anyway. -Enough said!
