In love

Many of my posts regard the love-hate relationship that I have with my congregation and my calling.

However, I just uploaded some pictures of my son that we took this afternoon to my computer and I have to say ... I'm completely and totally in love.

I feel like such a mush when I gush about him -- but I think he's truly fabulous. He's almost a year old and while there have certainly been times when I've been exhausted (I went back to work when he was 8 weeks old) and crazy, I love the (not-so) little guy so much I can hardly stand it most times. In love. In love to the point of standing over his crib several times an evening just to gaze at him (mind you he went to sleep by about 5:45 tonight and will most likely sleep until 0600 or 0630).

All this coming from someone who first wasn't so sure that she wanted a kidlet. All this coming from someone who when "it" didn't work again and again and again thought that it might be OK not to have children. All this coming from me. Wow.

So where are the pics? We want to see the little guy! I might need to scope him out for the Pigbear! And, I'm glad to know I'm not the only one who spends way too much of her "free time" in the evening leaning over the crib whispering "wow".

This is just so sweet. I'm grinning AND I have tears in my eyes!

I know we're not supposed to hoard our treasure or something like that, but be sure to save up this feeling for when he's 4. And has opinions.

How wonderful... I feel like that still especially when I see my girls perform (classical musicians) or Jon acting, or Paul and Chris achieve something new and they are 25, 22, 20, and 17 year old twins! Its one of the perks of being mom!

What Juniper said, and remember, you're going to need a goodly share for when he's almost 17, too.
