Dear Thomas

Dear Thomas,

It's hard to believe you are already eight weeks old.  We already can barely remember life before you arrived.  You are a sweet, happy little baby boy who loves to snuggle. 

I feel the weight of you in my arms and sigh.  I'm so thankful to have you in my arms, in our family.  Your eyes search and meet mine.  Your coos are little arrows to my heart, piercing. 

I listen to you "talk" to me and realize that this moment is so fleeting.  It won't be long before you tower over me, cringing when I want a hug.  I'll just be "Oh, MOM!"  Probably constantly embarrassing you in front of your friends.

But for now you are my sweet little guy and I am your mama.  We think the other hung the moon. 

With you here our family now feels complete.

Forever and always,
Love Mama
