{As of late...}

Photobucket

...I've been learning what it really means to give of yourself and live for someone else...

As of late I've been operating on less sleep than ever before...

As of late I've been knee deep in diapers, bottles, spit up, toys, blankets, onesies...

As of late I've been spending countless hours rocking, feeding, soothing...

As of late my wardrobe has consisted of jeans, spit up stained t shirts, and a messy bun...

As of late I've been making medical decisions and choosing pediatricians...

As of late every choice I make is with someone elses well being in mind...

As of late the love in my heart brought me to tears while rocking my son to sleep and praying over his precious life...

As of late I have lifted up numerous prayers of thanks for the blessing I've been given...

As of late I've experienced more joy, love, and fulfillment than I ever thought possible...

As of late I live for one little person and his melt-my-heart smile...

As of late all my dreams have come true... 

As of late my son came home and I became a mother...

Isn't being a Mama so great! I think when you have to wait so long to become a mother you have a greater appreciation for what it is.
He is SO cute!

I am relating to the sleep one, or lack thereof!

On a side note, I placed an order and never got an email. Can you email me and let me know if it went through? Thanks
