Dearest Austen,

Having you has reinstated my previous belief that a big family is what I want. Every day with you is more beautiful than the last, watching you change and grow. For years, people with children have always laughed at me when I said I want as many kids as I can! But now I have what I didn't have then: Experience. While I understand that there is sooo many more obstacles to overcome, and so much more that will 'not' be easy, I know that I enjoy being a mother more than anything else I have even enjoyed. I truly love entering every day knowing that you will laugh more, smile more, and do more! I have been blessed with a fantastic child, who is either a very easy baby, or I"m just enjoying it too much to notice! I don't know what people were warning me about, but this "baby thing" is just wonderful. Who needs sleep??! You are worth it. I truly cannot wait to give you brothers and/or sisters....this is a wonderful journey, being a mother. And YOU have given me that! You will always be my first, my oldest, my son. So thank you.

Love Always,

  1. I felt the same way. I don't know why people feel the need to " warn " you. Collin slept every night, never cried, never fussed. Every day with him was better than the last and I couldn't remember why I never wanted children once I had him.
    A new baby is the most beautiful experience a woman can go through, I think anyways.
