Five

Today is March 5th, and today, my beautiful little boy turneds five months old... Where has time gone? It seems like just yesterday, I was trying to get a handle on having a new born with projectile vomiting issues, acid reflux, and stitches. Lots of them. On me, not Hunter...

He has the most incredible personality a mom could ask for. So calm, so happy, so easy. For the most part, he rarely cries (unless he has a jagged tooth tearing through his tender gums), he coos, giggles, smiles, belly laughs, chatters, blows raspberries and flurbers. He's an absolute joy. And, to top off a wonderful personality, he's so handsome. He has blondish hair that's getting darker as we speak, piercing blue eyes, a perfectly small button nose, and the roundest chipmunk cheeks. I just want to kiss him, cuddle him, hug him, and eat him up. I can't help it... he's that cute! We have been so blessed.

So tonight, after he finishes his bottle, and snuggles with me and falls asleep while I'm praying over him, I will probably be looking lovingly at his hands, and running my finger along his sweet round cheek, praising God for his grace, his love, and his answers to prayer.

God is so good!

So sweet. Soon I'll be reading about his first birthday and we'll both be wondering where the time has gone. :)

Aw. To hold a little one near you as you feed them and look at them with a mother's eyes. I miss that.

I've got to tell you; I am 50. My eldest is 24 and getting married in May. (He lives and works in Ohio) My middle boy is 21 and my youngest is 15.

This weekend, my eldest is here with us because he has a job interview in the next town tomorrow morning (prayers are appreciated!). Anyway, I said all that to say this: you will never stop looking at your children with mother's eyes. It is such a sweet thing to hold an infant; it is a bittersweet thing to send off an adult. But the feelings of love and pride and joy don't really ever go away. They change, but they are still there.

Enjoy holding little Hunter but don't feel like as he grows he is slipping away from you as so many mothers do. He is your son, you are the only Mother he will ever have and there is nothing like that relationship. Savor it and anticipate it's continued blessing in your life. . .

Tears -- big, gushy tears! Y'all have such a way with words of love and comfort at the right time! My husband and I were just talking on Saturday about all the "what-if's" about high school, football (as if we already know he's going to play football), peer pressure, spiritual matters, dating, trendy clothing (as in ... will we allow him to wear pants that are 6 sizes to big and hang down to his knees), college ... and he's only 5 months old! I never thought in my wildest dreams that my mind would move so quickly about all the what-is in my son's future!

Whew! Thank goodness we didn't have a daughter first!!! Yikes!
