Just the 2 of Us


I've really been soaking in these weeks with just baby and me.  When I first announced my pregnancy my MIL shared with me that she thought it was so neat that for those weeks when even you don't know you're pregnant, it's like God's little secret He shares just with you.

I've been thinking more and more about that because it won't be long and I'm going to have to share this little boy with others.  Right now, it's just the two of us and I really like it that way.  Don't get me wrong, I want to share him with my husband and my family, but this is special.

In just a few short months other people are going to want to hold him, snuggle him, and kiss him.  I will share him for bath time, play time, feeding time, all the time.  He will still be mine, but others will want their time with him, too.  

So these last few months, I'm going to cherish.  I plan to make less plans.  To be alone with my babe.  To take him for long walks, runs in the cool air, and just sit and appreciate the fact that we can be together these 9 months when no one else can be.

I read this quote the other day by Pink and I think she put it so perfectly:
"What surprises me most about being a mom is that there were ever moms that didn't enjoy it. I know it's a lot of work and it's exhausting and it's a lot of pressure, but what a blessing and a gift."

For real though, how can anyone not enjoy this amazing time?  The time when you share your sweet little one with no one else.  It is so precious and priceless and absolutely miraculous.
