You are my first. I want you to know how much I love you. You are my little lion cub.
You came into this world as stubborn as can be. I said to you “your evicted, time to come out of mommy” and in return you made me take you to “court”. You were very comfortable in my tummy, even hours after my water broke, stargazing (looking up instead of down) and staying toasty. Dr. Kohn came in and we laughed about how you would not move, despite all our efforts. But then you came.
You came into the world at 10:14 pm belting out the biggest roar. That is a sound I will never forget. Today, as I write this you are exactly 37 weeks. You are crawling and pulling your self up on everything! Your deep belly gut laugh is contagious. You crack us up with your Mark Wahlberg eyebrow raise. You have been holding your bottle with one hand since you were 2 months old and holding up your own head since 1 month. I could not be a more proud mama lioness.
I love sleeping next to you and giving you endless cuddles and kisses. I love nursing you to sleep while you hold my finger. I love just watching you sleep. You do not like when I walk away from you or leave you and you make sure to let me know. You love to eat all your solid foods and drink your baba. I am still amazed that I created you.
I hope to never see you sad, even though i’m sure there will be times. I will be there to walk you to your first day of school. I will be at every performance you have. I will be there with open arms when you experience your first love and your first heartbreak. I’ll worry at night when you go out and stay awake until I hear you walk in. I will cry when you leave the nest. You will alway know how much I love you. You my son, you are my perfect little human.
