Jacob Have I Loved

I am constantly amazed by how much I love my little guy. I went to my cousin Heidi's bridal shower Saturday, and Ryan went to my folks' house with the kids. The whole time I was there, I felt like I was missing an arm because Jacob wasn't there with me. I felt awkward - not myself - without my baby by my side. I couldn't wait to get to my parents' house and squeeze my little smiler. He must be the best baby ever. So happy, smiley, social, and content. God couldn't have blessed us with a better #2. Especially with a rambunctious little #1.

Now only if he'd learn how to sleep at night, everything would be perfect ;)

But Saturday left me wondering if I'm losing myself in my kids. If I'm not someone's mom, who am I?

I worried that I was too attached to my guys too..but after like everything else time teaches us. As my guys become more adventurous and independent they spend more time away from my body and my time becomes my own a little at a time and then one day you drop them off at nursery school and you realize they will be away from you for three whole could go to the bathroom alone, like twice !!
