19 Kids and Patience

The love I have for my sweet boy is a magical thing. When he sleeps on me during his hardest of teething days, or just wants a cuddle, I can't help but think "this is what it is all about."

I have lists of things to do. I have goals and aspirations. I have dinner to make. I have things to clean. I have errands to run. There is always something to do, but when those moments happen I stop everything, and live right there in them. I sniff baby DC's head.  I rub his tiny back. I whisper, "I love you sweet baby," and I try as hard as I can to remember every second of it.

Family and friends often ask when we will have our next little, and sometimes we start to wonder too, but in those moments where it is just DC and I, I can't imagine having to take time away from him just yet. I need him just as much as he needs me, and sure things aren't always magical and lovely in the motherhood career, but when they aren't it is because I am focusing on my lists, and not enough on him. If my day seems hard because my little won't stop crying, I have to place less focus on what I can't do, and more focus on what he needs. I also have to work on my patience, and can we just talk about how that Duggar momma is amazing! She never yells at any of her 19 kids! Ever! I love that show.

If he is crying, something is wrong (not always, but most of the time), and it isn't my job to drill sergeant order him to "stop." It is my job to talk to him, love him, and show him I am his, and he is mine, and that no matter what, he will always have my heart.

Oh dear sweet boy, I do love your cuddles. Stay this little for just  a while longer.


  1. super cute outfit, love the oversized cowl

  2. I love this post. Things have been so hard with my little cutting his eye teeth. I sometimes feel like I am drowning. But when he stops and we just cuddle or he needs a hug it is just the greatest. Thanks for the little reminder of what it's all about :). I need this. Cute outfit btw :) xo


    1. Laura,

      I always need the reminder. I feel like I always am so "busy," and that's what makes the most precious of this baby stage fly!

      Thank you for the love! You rockstar!
