As of today, I have been a Mama for exactly one hundred and thirty five days. It's hard to believe it's been that long, and at the same time, it's hard to believe it's gone so quick! These past few months have been the fastest and slowest, the most challenging and the most rewarding, the most fun and the most intimidating. I had no idea just how much I wanted to be a Mama until I became one. Sure I always hoped and planned to have kids (lots of them, in fact), but I didn't understand just how wonderful it would be to hold that sweet baby and know that the Lord had made me to be his Mama. I pray that I would lead him well, that I would be quick to show grace and remind him of Jesus' love. That I would prayerfully disciple and discipline him, and that I would teach him what it means to love well. It truly is a privilege and a joy to be a Mama.
So today, in honor of my first official Mother's Day, I will be snuggling my sweet boy a little extra and soaking up every second of getting to be his one and only Mama... baby spit-up, dirty diapers and all.
And because you know we Wilsons have a Getty's song for every holiday... (FULL DISCLOSURE: this song makes me tear up EVERY. SINGLE. TIME.)
