Look who turned a month old last week?
My sweet baby Bryan,
Your daddy and I have been so beyond blessed to have you and be your parents. You have changed our lives in a million good ways. After waiting and wishing and longing for you for 4 1/2 years, you’re finally here. A lot of people have asked me how motherhood compares to how I thought it would be. Did I build it up too much in my mind? Was I naive with thinking of the difficulties? Would it be less amazing than I dreamed?
No. No. And no.
After years of longing, motherhood is even better than I had imagined. Bryan, you are even better than I had imagined. Being your mama is such a joy. Yes it’s sleepy and fussy sometimes and we regularly get peed and spit up on– but you have brightened our days so intensely. We love holding you and changing you and feeding you. We love snuggling with you and wearing you and bathing you. We love when you smile and when you sigh. We love everything about you and are so grateful you are our son.
Bryan, God has revealed so much of his goodness and kindness and love in giving us you. You are such a gift. We pray for you daily that we can raise you well and that you know we love you. We pray you will grow big and strong and that you will know Jesus. We pray that our little family can bring glory to God.
We love you so much buddy boy. Happy one month!
