I love this time of year so much-- Family dinner with beautiful Christmas china, everything homemade and delicious, hot chocolate, and dessert every night after dinner. Diet starts Monday (in January) right??
My mom and dad have all of their children and grandchildren over for dinner every Sunday. It is such a fun tradition and I look forward to Sunday all week long. Family is really what life is all about. Steve and I both came from pretty incredible families.
This morning, I fed Parker and then put him in bed next to me. We laid there and cuddled and stared at each other for about fifteen minutes. I kissed his cute little cheeks and told about 50 times that I love him so much and every time he would smile and goo and then blow raspberries at me. I thought to myself, I don't want this precious moment to end! I can't even imagine what it's going to be like when he grows up into a man. I just soaked it all in and will always remember his cute little face. I love the way he looks at me. I can tell by the way he looks at me that I am the absolute love of his life (and he is mine... along with his father!) I had to write down this great moment so I will always remember it. Someday, he is going to have a wife and children of his own that he will love just as much. But for now, he is all mine. :) I am so blessed to have such a sweet spirit as my son. He is such a good baby and I just can't say enough how much I love him. I am so in love with Steve too, in a completely different (good different) way. Having a child just made our love for each other even stronger. We looked at each other the other day and said "Isn't it weird that we have a baby together??" It is the weirdest, most incredible thing ever! I love being a mom. :)
I am so excited to wake up on Christmas morning to this little guys face.
