Time sure does fly!

My little angel is 5 months old today. It seems like yesterday that I was still carrying him around inside me and I couldn't wait for him to be out! I have to admit sometimes I wish I was still pregnant so I wouldn't have to share him with anyone. :) He is growing up so fast. It amazes me, the fact that when I was a little girl it seemed like my birthday or Christmas would take so long to get here and that it would take forever to grow that I am a mom this little life is flashing by me. It's incredible to watch this little person learn new things and just be so happy to stand up on my lap holding my hands. I try to soak every millisecond of his life in my mind so it will be a time capsule. When I'm rocking him or staring at him sleeping, I say to myself take a mental picture now...this memory will be my happy thought sometime down the road. You would all be amazed by the stock of memories already! I guess you can say watching your child grow up is bittersweet...a part of me wants him to stay a baby forever wanting him to need me all the time. Then another part of me is so excited to see him grow and learn and make new memories with him. I guess all I can do for now is sit back and enjoy the ride of being a mommy.

A Letter to Carter...

I think all the time about what I want for Carter in life so I thought I would share with you all...

To my sweet little boy,

I love you with all my heart. I never knew I could ever love anyone or anything as much as I love you. You amaze me each and everyday. I love watching you grow and learn...even though I wish you would slow it down just a little. ;-) I want you to have the whole world. I want you to be your own person, A leader not a follower, never change for anyone but yourself, love yourself, love others, laugh, be creative, be what you want to be, smile, be happy, experience and enjoy life to it's fullest, try new things, make mistakes, but learn from them, try and if you fail try again, have life long friends, be a best friend, love and know God, be strong, but don't be afraid to be weak at times, know that it's ok to cry, have a big heart, know that it's better to give than receive, share, pray, learn everything your mind can soak in, love the sunshine and the rain, always be the bigger person, let the negative things in life roll off your back, and let the positive shine through your heart and soul, always keep your head up and remember I'm always here for you! I love you so much!
