noah milton - march 2009 - almost 5 months old
i'm in tears right now just thinking about these last 5 months...my life has changed so radically since little noah came into it. and i am SO thankful to God for bringing him to me! what a precious little miracle he is. every day he is learning (we're gonna start sign language soon!), and playing, and laughing...and he's so healthy! He is such a blessed baby!
i am so blessed to be home with him so much during the week, but i can't help but feel jealous of those moms who are home 24/7 with their kiddos. i know that everyday i am away from him i am missing perfect smiles, and new noises, and poopy diapers (of course i'm glad to leave that last one up to someone else...LOL!) But i love my job...i love my career. i wouldn't trade it for the world and i know that by working i am making a better life for noah and our family.
okay, sorry for that...sometimes i just get weepy...i'm still blaming it on pregnancy hormones. is that okay to do, even though i had my baby almost 5 months ago? haha...Beth Moore says that most women list hormones as the "hardest part about being a woman." (Esther: It's Hard Being a Woman Bible Study)
Thank you Jesus for giving me a healthy, happy baby boy! Thank you for blessing our family so abundantly!! Thank you for teaching me to be a good mommy. Help me to make the most of my time with him while he's a baby. Make our time together precious and special. Help me to not envy stay-at-home moms. Give me joy overflowing for the fact that You placed me in a job that I love!
