I am.

I am happy when... I eat dinner with my husband on our back patio under strings of lights.

I am grateful when... Aaron bathes Wyatt while I clean up after dinner. A few quiet moments to myself, knowing Wyatt is having the time of life kicking his legs & splashing water everywhere.

I am nervous when... I think of Wyatt growing up and how the heck I'll be able to keep him as pure & innocent as he is now.

I am proud when... Wyatt falls asleep all on his own (which he's been doing for the past month or so, but I'm still amazed every time).

I am anxious when... I think of how fast the past 6 months have gone since Wyatt was born.

I am at peace when... Wyatt's soft little hands are on my cheeks, we are face to face, and we are smiling at each other for no reason at all.

I am wondering when... we will get to buy a house to raise our family in.

I feel most like myself when... I sing to Wyatt.

I am waiting for when... I get to take Wyatt swimming this summer (knowing how much he enjoys his 2 inches of bathwater, I think he's in for a real treat).

I am a mother when... I peek in Wyatt's room, see my angel baby sleeping, and start counting down the minutes until he wakes up again.

**I started this post last week, and was inspired to finish it after reading Sydney's beautiful similar-ish post this morning.



  1. I love this post. :-) Isn't it amazing (and horrifying) how fast time flies when you have kids?

  2. Beautiful. And so recognizable. Those babes, they changed us forever, didn't they?

  3. So beautiful! And loving those blonde locks!!
