Here's a post where I am just going to gush. Gush about how crazy in love I am with Noah. Gush about how proud I am of my little guy.
I know this is nothing new, I know that I am not the first mother to be head over heels in love with her child but this relationship that I have with Noah is unlike anything I have ever experienced. I feel so lucky to be able to spend my days with my little man. To teach him and show him the world. It's amazing to watch him take in everything around him. Every moment of everyday, Noah is learning something new.
Like when we go to our Mother Goose program, it' s just so sweet to watch him paying attention to the group leader, listening attentively to the songs and stories. Or when we go to the park, he turns his head at every sound and sight. Full of awe, he picks up every stick and piece of grass he can get his little hands on because he has just learned how to use his thumb and index finger to pick things up.
And because all of this learning is such hard work, sometimes nap time just has to happen when we are in the middle of something like grocery shopping. Here is a pic I took on Wed morning just after Mother Goose. Noah just couldn't hold off, he was so tired. (*please don't scoff at the plastic bag- I usually do my very best to bring reusables).
It's not like I didn't feel this before, but there's something very special about this stage of Noah's life right now. I've never seen him so alert, so curious, so full of wonder and I just feel so honoured that I am the one who gets to be his mama. I'm the one who gets to spend all this time with him. And to me this is the biggest responsibility and the most important job I have ever done.
