5 Months


Dear Carson,

I wish I could put into words the light you bring to my world.  Sometimes I look at you and I can't even believe this is my life.  I get to be your mommy.  It's the biggest blessing I've ever been given.  

The nights and days before you are a blur.  You have put my world into high definition and it seems to have so much more meaning now.  Every day I see you changing and growing.  I catch glimpses of your daddy and then I see pieces of me and some of Uncle Josh.  

You are accomplishing milestones in advanced mode and it's a struggle for me: I catch myself cheering for you with each new accomplishment, but at the same time begging time to slow down.  It is so fun to see you playing and discovering, but I already miss the days when you would snuggle my chest and I could just breath you in.  

I think every moment we are ever in is going to be absolutely perfect.  And although I may never stop wishing for time to stand still, I will relish in each new moment we have together.  It is the greatest joy to watch you grow.

I love you.
Love,
Mommy
