Something Special

Ever since the husband and I started trying for baby number two, I’ve asked myself what the bond between myself and a second child might be like.

I know that I could (and would) love another child. There is no doubt in my mind about that. Boy or girl, whichever child comes into our family next will be as loved as our son is.

But, as a boy mama…

I have to say that this love I have for my first born is something to be reckoned with.

It used to slightly annoy me to see moms going on and on and on about how much they love their kids. I mean, we all assume that they love them, take care of them, look out for them, etc. That’s a given right?

But, I didn’t fully understand just how much you could love one single, tiny little person until Noah came into my life.

And I think it’s safe to say that I love my kid more every day.

We share a special bond, him and me.

Mother and son.

In truth, I think this little boy is as much my soul mate as my husband is.

We understand each other. I tell him my little secrets.

He sees me act silly during the day time; dancing around the kitchen while I cook breakfast, playing goofy games throughout the afternoon to keep him entertained.

We snuggle up in the chair or on the couch and watch movies. We have a special bedtime routine that we share; he calls it our “Hugs, Kiss, Nose, Eyes and Ears.”

It’s ours. Mine and his.

Don’t get me wrong, this boy idolizes his daddy. His daddy is ever bit of a super hero to him.

But me?

His mommy?

I’m something special, I think.

Just like he’s something special to me.

I don’t know what it will be like when we have another baby; especially if it’s another boy.

Because this one?

This one has pretty much stole my heart.

    Noah is such an adorable little man. 🙂 I always enjoy seeing the new photos you post. It takes a talented photographer to capture a child’s personality in a photo, and I think you do it beautifully!

    Gosh, I swear this post just summed up my life and almost makes me want to try for #2 even though Ke’alohi is only 10 months old.

    How Sweet Mother and Son Bond! It is Great that Parents should win the Hearts of their Little Ones, this is the start of an open communication between parents and children. Telling little secrets become a bonding and it’s funny and cute. When this little boy grew up, he will cherished all the good memoirs you have. Love Lots!

    Beautiful shots!

    I honestly don’t know I I can share myself with another baby, my little man has all of me. It’s scary wondering if you’ll be “enough” for more kiddos. (For me at least.)

    I hear you. I’m a Mama of two boys. Me & #1 are the best of friends. We just get each other. I love number 2 with all my heart but its just different. Both love completely and totally unconditionally, but I think there is always a different bond with the one that made you a Mom. It’s good to have two little men. I wouldn’t want it any other way. With a face like that of course he stole your heart!

    Such a sweet post. I felt the same way you described before having my daughter. But now my heart is fuller than I could have ever imagined. As far as the second, my Mom says your heart just gets bigger.

    BTW: I love the one with him at the table with his arms crossed. Too cute!
