I catch myself doing this all the time– whether it’s thinking it or saying it out loud. You know what those words are, don’t you? “I can’t wait”….. I. Can’t. Wait, Normally it’s followed by something like “till you can walk” or “till you can talk” or any other variation of my son growing up. It’s not because I don’t like the stage we’re in– it’s that I’m so excited for what’s to come!
Honestly, I’ve never really been a “newborn” person. I know I’m in the minority and everyone always tells you it’s different when you have your own child (and it’s true), but I still love it when they get a bit more active– I love seeing their little personalities develop! So when I think of all the things Jackson will be doing, I get sooo excited! And at the same time, I completely understand that this moment in time is fleeting. And so I catch myself every time I think “I can’t wait” and step back into the moment and soak in all of the magic of his every day. I love his giant smile and his sweetness and I know that all of this “firsts” will be captured with a lot more than just my memory. #photosgalore And because of these thoughts and feelings, I wrote a love poem to our son during a 3am feeding and turned it into a children’s book. All of the things I hope for him while appreciating the time we’re in. I need your help to make it a reality, so I launched a Kickstarter campaign! You can find the backstory, inspiration and become a part of my journey to make this book come to life right here > Kickstarter: “Sweet Little Love” (Thank you to everyone who has already donated!) In the meantime, I’ll be living in the moment 🙂
