Being a mom

In honor of mothers day, I thought I would post about being a mom.

All I ever wanted from life was to be a mom. When I was pregnant, I couldn't imagine loving my child more than I did at that time - boy was I wrong.

When Julien was born, I couldn't get over the overwhelming emotion that went with holding my child. Watching him fight in the NICU, getting stronger and breathing better everyday was amazing.

Holding him, connecting with him and finally being able to nurse him was the most incredible feeling I had ever had.

As he grew, watching him explore and grow into his personality - it was so much fun. When I found out I was pregnant with Kyle, again, I was ecstatic - but this time I knew the love I had for him in the womb was nothing compared to after his birth.
Seeing my two boys, experiencing life as a mom of 2 is absolutely woderful. It is the most incredible thing I have experienced, and I only wish that EVERY woman had that chance.

I was nursing Kyle this morning, and knowing that he gets his nourishment from me - well, I don't really have any words to describe the moment we had. But it was a fitting time seeing as today is mothers day.

So, if your mom is with you - giveher a hug; if she isn't, know that she felt these same things about you as I feel about my boys.
