After 30 yrs I finally know the meaning of: Love

I have never known love like the love I feel for my son. True love is experienced when one becomes a parent. You gaze upon the most beautiful thing you have ever seen and wonder what you did to deserve it. You find yourself giving up all your former dreams just for your child, giving up yourself for their well being, for their happiness. You can have the worst day and one smile from your kid and it makes all the wrong right. I am the luckiest person alive. I thank God everyday for my little boy.

    Yes. LOL. I find myself getting super silly, even in stores, and not caring who is watching. It is like everything else around me fades and it is just me and him. I also seem to cry more and am more sensitive when it comes to anything about kids. I get more exited over a new baby toy than a new movie released. My hubby is even a different person around my son (and he was a sergeant in the military). It is wonderful and incredible how someone so tiny can change two individuals and make them mush. LOL

    Thank you. Yes, they are. I was looking at his sonogram pics a few days ago (and showing him but he didn't seem interested) and am still amazed that someone the size of a bean turned into this amazing and beautiful creation in my arms.

    I know, right? I got nearly weepy when Jonah didn't fit into his newborn sized clothes. And now he is nearly out of his 0-3 months! He is in a size 2 diaper now, too. It is amazing. He was so teeny when I brought him home and now he is over 2 inches and gained 4 lbs since we did bring him home. His face seems to change more everyday as well. Before you and I know it, we will be chasing our boys around the house. lol

    Oh, and if we had a girl, we were going to name her Abigail. LOL I adore that girl's name. :)

    Oh nice!! Yeah, Abby is my step baby :) If my boyfriend and I have a girl together, we want the name Riley.

    And yes, Lucas is just so huge, He's already in 12-18 month clothes. I hate getting rid of his smaller clothes. :( And I already chase him because he's crawling all over the place!!! It's insane!
