Maternity leave has come and gone and my baby boy isn't a newborn anymore. Baby Sammy is fast approaching the four month mark.
Being a mom to my adorable little boy is such a blessing. I feel so honored everyday to be his mommy. I will never forget the moment I held him for the first time. It is a moment that I can't describe as I'm sure every mom can relate to. Words just won't do it justice.
I heard over and over during my pregnancy that all the aches of the 9-months are "worth it" and man is that ever true. Every sleepless night, the morning sickness, the backaches and the heartburn is all worth it.
Already my little boy is growing so fast. He's rolling over and has his first tooth! I came across a poem on Facebook that really struck a cord with me as I juggle work and time with my precious little man.
slow down mummy, there is no need to rush,
slow down mummy, what is all the fuss?
slow down mummy, make yourself a cup of tea.
slow down mummy, come spend some time with me.
slow down mummy, let's pull boots on for a walk,
let's kick at piles of leaves, and smile and laugh and talk.
slow down mummy, you look ever so tired,
come sit and snuggle under the duvet, and rest with me a while.
slow down mummy, those dirty dishes can wait,
slow down mummy, let's have some fun - bake a cake!
slow down mummy, I know you work a lot,
but sometimes mummy, it's nice when you just stop.
sit with us a minute,
and listen to our day,
spend a cherished moment,
because our childhood won't stay!
