God made the world out of His dreams
of magic mountains,oceans and streams,
prairies and plains and wooded lands,
then paused and thought
"I need someone to stand,
on top of mountains,to conquer the seas,
explore the plains and climb the trees.
Someone to start out small and to grow,
sturdy and strong as a tree..."
He created boys,full of spirit and fun,
to explore and conquer to romp and run.
With dirty faces and banged up chins,
with courageous hearts and boyish grins.
When he had completed the task He'd begun
He surley said "A job well done!"
I love my son! He has brought me such pleasure and joy since his birth! I never dreamed how awesome it would actually be to be a mommy and my sons birth brought feelings I've never had before because he was my first born!
Joy and wonder at such a miracle! The mother henish feelings, pure awe at how God can create such a special little being.Those first moments of holding him were absolute bliss!
Now he is 4! I have a hard time believing that just 4 short years ago I thought he would never grow up fast enough!! After the first two weeks of his life he started his colic and I tell you , that is something that I sympathize with every mom, especially brand new mommies! The feeling of being watched and having so many suggestions thrown at you, at what you could do or possibly what will make it better - it's overwhelming.
My mom was my huge supporter.She went through two biological colic babies and when third sister came along, she may not have been biological but she gave my mom the grief and stress of fussiness just like us two oldest. My mom understood. She said I could do it. And four short years later, it's proven to me that she was right! ;)
Here we are, with our little colicy all grown up! ;) ok,not all grown up, but gettn there.You know what I mean :) And I thank God he chose us to be Braxton's mommy and daddy!
This stage brings a whole new set of challanges but it's a stage I greatly enjoy!
And this year he asked for a party with "his little friends" and how in the world could this mommy resist! Braxton's little friends mean the world to him.And he is lucky to have a whole set of little boys around his age.
1...2...3...4...5...6...7....yep, there were 7 little boys here that evening and there was one or two missing. Full of energy, full of fun.They were running around here like little indians enjoying every second.Well, my son had a few freak out moments, I think he felt a little overwhelmed but nevertheless,he had the time of his life!
And it was totally adorable how each one was very proud of the gift they brought and each one of them was sure that theirs was the best gift there! ;)
While they were eating supper they started talking about what they brought for Braxton and one of them piped up "I brought a monster truck!" :)
At the end of the day Brax was very sad that his friends had to go home! He wanted them to stay at his house. And he kept telling me that evening after everything was over, "tonight was fun."
At bedtime he came and wrapped his skinny little arms around my neck, laid his head on my shoulder and said "tonight was fun!"
Definitley made it worth it for this mamma!
And just for the record...
...I'm very much in love with my little girl too! She'll get a post all her own sometime ;)
I'm a blessed mommy!
