Connor's Two!! (weeks old!)

I'm trying not to hyperventilate at the thought of two weeks being already past.  
Actually, one week was enough to make me burst into tears several times that day. 
I don't know what I would do without pictures of Connor to revisit.



I spend a lot of time pouring over them, noticing every tiny detail and how he's changed.   I delight in every stage of my kids as they grow, ( not counting any stage that includes whining )  but at the same time that I am loving whatever cute thing they are doing, secretly I'm mourning the passing of whatever cute thing they just finished doing.  

I decided a long time ago that my idea of Heaven will be for me to be able to relive any moment of my life, remembering how the moment felt, any time I want.

Heaven for me now is the tiny moments with my kids that happen each day, and how they make me grateful each day that I am their mother.


It's the only job I ever wanted.

Tammy, You are the mother of all mothers!!! (Now, why doesn't that sound quite like I thought it would?) Anyway...I love seeing you mother and hearing you speak so lovingly about it. You are an inspiration to those of us who have to learn to love it like you do.

I have always amazed what a great mom you are... and one day I hope to be just like you... "the mother of all mothers" (I do agree that doesn't quite sound like it should).

You have always put what being a mother means into persepective for me. There is a reason why your kiddies love you so much and enjoy your home - you help them feel secure and wanted beyond what they could possibly imagine - until they one day walk in your shoes as a parent. Think what great parents you are preparing! They will love what they will do just as much as you!
