It's the Little Things

My favorite things about being a mommy are the little things...things that before having a baby I never would have thought about....things like:

  • When he's eating in the middle of the night, Paxton always reaches up and grabs a piece of my hair and holds it while he eats.  I feel like it's something special that he just does with me.  He realizes that it's his mommy and he reaches for that piece of hair.  I love just sitting there watching him hold it.  It makes up for the lack of sleep (which by the way is getting better...Saturday night he slept ten and a half hours!)

  • His sweet smell after a bath.  Everybody always talks about how great babies smell...but it's different when it's your own little baby.  

  • How much he loves to cuddle.  Sometimes he gets fussy and all he wants is to be held...and sure it's inconvenient but it's so nice to just sit and hold him for awhile.  The house isn't always clean and the dishes aren't always done, but I know I'm going to miss these moments where I'm all he wants.
  • Watching Jared interact with him.  I love how excited he gets when he comes home from work and gets to hold Paxton.  I love how much he loves his son.
    There are so many amazing things about being a mom...it's impossible to list them all.  I'm having a great time with Paxton and I have really enjoyed these first eight weeks.
