As you Mama’s know, your life changes the moment you hear the first heartbeat of the little baby you are baking. Nine months later, your heart just bursts with over bounding joy that cannot be measured. With that love came fear for me.
My biggest fear has always been leaving this earth and my babies not knowing the amount of love and admiration I have for each of them individually. From day one on, I have sporadically written Mommy “love” notes to each one of my kids. Most of their baby book is full of random entries from me, dated and signed, for memories in the future that I may or may not be able to recollect. Tonight was just one instance where I stopped what I was doing and wrote a little note to my baby girl.
As Easter weekend comes to a close, it is an amazing reminder of 2 years ago and the gift that we were blessed with. It was two years ago we learned we were expecting another baby and, although I tried to hold back, fear filled my heart. My #2 was just 5 months old and the idea of three boys scared the pieces out of me. The truth is, God knew what he was doing and challenged me in my journey through motherhood.
Nevertheless, I want each of my littles to know that daily or at random times I am ALWAYS thinking of them. As the days go by and life gets crazy, my entries into their record of life will one day be all that is left of me to them. I look back at each baby book and it is very nostalgic. It brings me back to that moment and the reassuring love I have for them.
How do you keep memories alive for your babies?
As always… xoxo,
The Naturalist Mama
