"I have only been a mom for six months and already I have so many wonderful memories. It's hard to choose just one. Since it's Mother's Day I will choose the one that really made me feel like a mom. Noah is my first child and I sometimes I think it's still sinking in that I really am a mom now!
I was at a family gathering with my son Noah, who was four months at the time. He is normally very good with being held by different people. We have a big family so he's used to being passed around a lot. I was in the kitchen helping out. I could see that Noah was starting to get a bit overwhelmed with all the people and noise. He started fussing. Everyone wanted to hold him and be the one to calm him down. Those that weren't taking a turn holding him were yelling out suggestions on what to do (walk with him, say shhhhh, bounce him). I yelled out "I'll be right there", but a few people assured me he'd be fine. By the time I washed my hands and got to him he was crying. I hadn't held him for over an hour. The moment he came into my arms his crying slowed down. There were a few sniffles and then he rested his head on my shoulder. I closed my eyes and gave him a squeeze. He just wanted his Mom, and that was me. I will never forget how that made me feel."
Thank you Rachel for your touching Mommy moment! I loved reading all of the entries- many brought a tear to my eye. I had a rather hard time myself, thinking of only the best moment. Everything in that first year of being a Mommy just flies by! But, if i were to choose... i vividly remember putting Beebo in a swing around 8/9 months and listening to her just giggle and giggle and giggle! She always loved the swings (and still does). That giggle, bless-- pure joy!
Enjoy the Baby Gourmet Noah!
