Excuse Me While I Get Emotional About My Baby

I hope when you are 18, I remember.

 

Remember

 

The way you smelled

How heavy you felt in my arms

The sound of your cry

The joy I felt when we were told we could finally bring you home

How terrified I was the first night

I hope I remember

 

How your hair felt

The peaceful way you slept

The sound of your breath

The joy in your first smile

The amazement of watching you grow every day

I hope I remember

 

How I felt when I saw you in your Daddy’s arms for the first time

All your noises

The way you would try and eat anything when you were hungry, even a nose.

The days when you would wake up for a bottle, smile, and go back to sleep.

How you loved just to be held

 

I hope I remember

 

How tired I was at 4 am feeding you

How waking up to you made it easy

The happiness you brought to our whole family

What your eyes looked like when they would go crossed

How chubby your little cheeks were

How teeny tiny you were

I hope I remember

 

I hope that when you are 18, 21, 35

And we disagree on almost everything

That I remember.

I hope I remember being 18, 21, and 35

And I can still see your little chubby cheeks,

Hear your cry

And look at you with complete love, understanding, and support,

No matter what choices you are making in life.

I hope I remember.

 

XOXO,

 

Your Mama
