Today’s TAT theme is Mommy & Me. It’s still hard to believe that I am a Mother!

I can’t believe that this was me just 16 weeks ago. We were inseparable for 38 weeks and 5 days! Being pregnant was such an amazing experience and I will always remember the first time I saw him on the monitor, the first time I heard his heart beating and when I felt him kick and move.

In P’s nursery, we hung a decal that said, “Your First Breath Took Ours Away.” I didn’t realize how true that was until my breath was being taken away hearing him cry for the first time. I was lying on a table, drugged up with an oxygen mask on but none of that mattered. I didn’t see a single person in the room expect my husbands eyes and didn’t hear a single thing in the room except his little cry. Best moment of my life!

At just 10 weeks old, my relationship with P is still growing. I treasure every moment, even the stressful ones, with P. Even though there are always chores to be done, nothing seems more important that cuddling on the couch. I can’t believe the growth I have seen with him over the last 2 weeks. He is starting to look around and I think he recognizes me and Rob! We are getting a smile here and there, every one making my heart melt.
