when you've dreamed about something for so long, a lot of times you set your expectations so high that you're bound to be at least a little disappointed when it finally happens. motherhood is not like that at all. it is seriously everything i dreamed of and more.
there are no words to describe the love that you feel for your child. you think you know how much you'll love them, but the first time you set eyes on them, the first time you hold them in your arms, your heart swells and you are so overcome by this indescribable emotion that it is overwhelming and peaceful at the same time. i feel so humbled and blessed to have this perfect little soul entrusted to my care.
it's amazing how much you're willing to do for your child. i love B with all my heart, but cleaning up his vomit or getting peed on by him is well beyond the limits of my tolerance. if mack pukes, i patiently clean it up. if he pees on me, i laugh it off. if he wakes me up at 3:00am, i jump up to hold him. now, i wouldn't say that i love mack more than i love B, but it is a completely different kind of love, like comparing apples and oranges.
now, i promise not to make all of my posts a mommy-fest or turn this blog into a mack brag book, but every now and then you'll just have to indulge me while i vent my happiness. ;)
