Memories that are in my heart forever...


 Its 3 am they're all asleep

And no one's here to see

As we rock slowly back and forth

My Baby Boy and Me.

His little head is feather light

tucked up against my chin

I hold his tiny hand in mine

and stroke his baby skin.

The house about us creaks and groans

the clock hands creep around

He snuggles closer to me still

and makes his baby sounds.

I love these quiet hours so much

and cherish every one

store memories up inside my heart

for lonely nights to come.

All too soon he'll be grown up

his need for Mama gone

but until then I still have time

for kisses and for song.

Time for quiet hours like this

with him cuddled in my arms

where I wish he'd always stay

protected safe and warm.

And yet I know the day will come

when this tiny little hand

will be much bigger than my own

he'll grow to be a man.

But until then he's mine to love

with no one here to see

as we rock slowly back and forth

my baby boy and me.




                                          





















Tomorrow is Brody's 2nd birthday and I just can't believe it. Time has flown by and I have loved every minute of it. I thank God for blessing me with my healthy baby boy each and every day I am so blessed to be his mother, my heart just bursts with love for him. I am happy that he is turning 2 and such a healthy sweet little boy yet sad because I don't want the moments to go by so fast... I will forever hold all of the memories in my heart!!!! The past 2 years have been the best 2 years of my life, I love Brody more than he will ever know.

Brody,
I'll Love you Forever
I'll Like your for always
as long as I'm living
My baby you will be!!!!!!

Aww I'm in tears reading this! I can't believe he is 2 either! I remember when I first started reading your blog & he was just a tiny baby. I remember seeing that little smocked duck bubble like it was yesterday! You are such a good Mommy & Brody is very blessed to have you as his mom! Happy Birthday Brody!
