i joke a lot about how i can’t wait to have a girl or girls seem so much easier than boys.
and part of me really does believe that.
when i found out we were going to have a boy, i was totally shocked & yes, a little upset.
i didn’t grow up with younger brothers or have lots of little boy cousins.
when i babysat, i never knew how to handle little boys!
but i totally got little girls. they were my favorite!
so when we found out we were going to have a boy, i didn’t really know what to do.
why would i be given a boy when i have no idea how to deal with them?
but now i know exactly why.
i needed Elijah.
i needed to have that special love & bond in my life.
i needed to feel the love that only a son can give.
and it is greater than i thought it could ever be!
the way he smiles so big once he sees me come through the door in the morning.
the way he knows i will take care him no matter the need, problem, or boo-boo.
the way only mom knows the right way to kiss owies goodbye.
the way he snuggles up into my chest and begs to be sung to before being taken into bed.
because only his mama can sing that way.
there is definitely a very special & very sacred bond between mother and son that can never be broken.
i am so grateful i have my little boy in my life.
it would be dull without him!
