I have learned a few things about being a mom of a little boy. I have learned that no matter how much you try to cover him while you change his diaper, he will pee on everything. I feel like I just gave birth to a puppy because he is marking his territory.
I have also learned that even if we don't have any more kids, having a boy completes our little family unit.
There are times when Dex starts to fuss or cry and Lucy sings to him and he will calm down, and my heart melts.
There are times when Matt and I both have a kid in our laps and we catch each other's eye, and all of a sudden, time stops and the world around us means nothing, just us four are there and everything is perfect.
There are times when Dexter is sleeping and he smiles and giggles, and it takes my breath away.
I absolutely love staring at my son. His little face, his red hair...oh his red hair, I am still blown away by it.
At night when we are getting ready for bed, I can hear Matt reading The Hobbit to Lucy and I can't help but smile to myself, especially when Lucy will ask questions about Elbow (Bilbo).
I also got to watch my dad play with Lucy tonight with barbies and they also played doctor where my dad amputated Lucy's legs 4 times, and it was great watching them bond.
So many things have touched my heart in the last two weeks. I am such a sap lately because I can just feel the love that radiates from our little group.
I have truly never been happier in my life than I am now.
