I write this as my active baby lays squirming against me while he eats. He’ll pause every few minutes from doing his favorite thing (eating) to look up at me, as if to make sure I haven’t gone anywhere, and then the legs and arms start flailing again as he returns to gulping his food down. All this is accompanied by every noise that boys are supposed to make when they enjoy their food.

I love it. Is there a way to save these moments?

I’m only five weeks in and already I can tell that mothering is going to be one of the best and one of the hardest things I’ve ever done. I’m only five weeks in and already I’m aware of how much I need Jesus in order to be the mother that my boy needs. I’m only five weeks in and I’m already so in love with this beautiful face.
