The Time I Said Something Heartfelt

Lately, several bloggers have posted about their role as a mom. And? They've really spoken to me.

With Baby J turning 6 months old tomorrow, I'm really beginning to reflect on this thing we call motherhood. I spent the majority of this week trying to bring you to tears with a profound post. But? I just can't put the right words together.

All I know is this:

With each passing day, I look at Baby J and see a blessing. He and I broke the odds. Like the Doctor said, he's my miracle baby.

He amazes me every day. Not necessarily by the things that he does, but in the way that he makes me feel. Unconditional love is a funny, funny thing. It is truly unexplainable. The love I feel when he laughs or even cries is unlike anything else I've felt in life. Pain to the deepest level when tiny tears stream down his face and love that exceeds any emotion I previously thought to be humanly possible when he smiles my way.

Over the last few weeks, I've realized I'm not the same person I was six months ago. Nope, that naive girl who tried to picture what being a mom was like was way way off in her visions. Because even though I haven't slept a full night in six months, every second has been worth it to watch my son change our lives.

So, tomorrow, I'll head to the pediatrician with my 6 month old. We'll see how much he's grown, get the details on eating solids and give him a million hugs after those awful shots. Tomorrow, I'll officially be the mom of a 6 month old. And I'll tell you something...I couldn't be happier with where I am in life.
