A Mother's Love

Eight years ago today, at 12:10 am, I gave birth to the most beautiful 8 lb. 6 oz. 20 1/2 inches long baby boy.

When I heard your first cry, when I held you in my arms, when I saw your face ...
Nothing else mattered.

"It was the middle of the night and I had been awake for over 24 hours ... but we were finally alone ... just me and my son. All I could do was gaze at you in pure amazement. So this is the little guy who has been kicking me and pushing on my bladder. For months now I have imagined you smiling your Mommy's smile, gazing at me with eyes like mine. As I held you in my arms I saw that you were more perfect than anything I had ever imagined! I want to be the one to nourish you, protect you, comfort you. I want to make your world a beautiful place just like you have for me." - from Dylan's Baby Book

Nothing can break the bond of a Mother's love ... it only gets stronger with each passing day.

Happy Birthday my sweet boy. You have given me the best 8 years of my life.

I love you.
