Today my sweet baby boy is 9 months old. I can hardly believe it. He is at such a fun age but, it is still bitter-sweet. If I could go back and re-live the day he was born, I'd do it 100 times. That was by far the most amazing day of my life. Ever since I can remember, I've always wanted to be a mom. When I was a little girl, if anyone asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up, I always said that I wanted to be a mom. When I was in high school, I never looked at a guy twice if he didn't want to have a family someday.
Being Judah's mom is far better than I would've ever dreamed it would be. I always knew I'd love being a mommy and that I'd love my children but, Judah has blown away ever expectation I ever had. I am so thankful to Jesus for putting the desire to be a mother in my heart and then blessing me with this amazing boy.
As I type this, Judah is in his crib sleeping. It is so tempting to just go in there, pick him up and cuddle him. I really wish that I didn't need sleep. I would just want to cuddle that little boy all night long. But unfortunately, I do need sleep and so does Judah.
Judah has been such an amazing baby. He is happy almost all the time and he rarely cries or fusses about anything. He slept 10 hrs straight when he was 2.5 months old and he has slept through the night off and on since then. I've always had him on a pretty set schedule and I think that has really, really helped him be a good sleeper. He is such an amazing joy and he blesses me so much everyday.
There are no words that can describe my love for him and my hopes and dreams for his life. I pray that he will have an un-shakable relationship with God and be strong in his beliefs. I pray that he will love others and have a heart for people. I pray that he will be not only happy but, that he will have true joy. I pray that he will have strong values and also a great sense of humor. I pray that he will be a hard worker and take pride in the things that he does.
Happy 9 Months Judah! Daddy and Mommy love you!
