A Mother's Love

So for whatever reason I have been a teary eyed sap lately. With Henry's first birthday coming up (August 20th) I just keep finding myself wondering where the year went and being continually amazed by the little man he is becoming. He just started walking yesterday (yea I know he's one determined boy) and I still am not used to it. I took him to Little Bear today, which is a big area for kids under 5 with toys and climbing structures. (On a side note this place is great because I can sit, relax and watch Henry enjoy himself. They have snacks, coffee and free wifi too!)

So I'm sitting down and watching Henry walking around about 30 feet away from me. All of a sudden my eyes welled up with tears and I had that moment where your heart swells up with love and you feel like the proudest and luckiest mom in the world. My son is not the first kid to walk at 11 months old but none the less I am in awe and in love. He keeps me on my toes and regardless of how little sleep he got the night before he always wakes up with a smile on his face, ready to conquer the day.

People always told me how a child will change your life. To be honest I didn't believe them. They told me you will never know love like you do for your child. I just thought "well duh your supposed to love your child." Yet today I experienced that feeling, the one they all were talking about. A fill your heart up, bring you to tears, smile from ear to ear, big squeeze, super kiss kinda love that only a mother could know.
