Happy belated Mother’s Day to all the moms out there! Sunday, was my third Mother’s Day and I gotta say-I LOVE THE DAY!
I love being a mom! I think watching my boys grow and learn new stuff is one of the most exciting things!
Caleb: my big boy…
He is one busy, INCREDIBLE kid. He loves the “hawks” and “dunking” his basketball. (Any bird with its wings spread out is a “hawk” right now.) He loves to wrestle and watch “Elmo”. He wants to run around and play outside for long periods of time…riding bikes with his girlfriend next store, Cali, going down his slide, pointing out all the “buzz” (bees) in the vicinity of our house, finding sticks, playing in any kind of water (his pool, the dog bowl, puddles), drawing with chalk, blowing bubbles, pushing his lawn mower, climbing on my lawn mower…you get the idea 🙂 he loves to be a boy, but then he has the sweetest spirit as well. I tell him all the time I love his sweet heart. He will sit with me and read books, paint with me, draw for an hour on end, play puzzles, gives hugs and kisses to everyone! He says thank you and please without being prompted…he is one awesome kid and I am CRAZY about him! Watching him grow, learn new words, and discover the world-is an awesome thing! I love this boy so much and can’t be away from him with out missing him and seeing stuff that makes me think of him.
Jeremiah: my baby (even though he is a big one) :)…
He is amazing! It’s funny how just thinking about talking about him-my heart swells with pride and wonder. I love this kid so much. I think the most amazing part is…he hasn’t been an easy boy, but I am crazy about him! He was fussy from birth-needing constant care and attention…couldn’t sleep in anything but my arms for almost 4 months, hated the pacifier for FOREVER , still hates the bottle, and still battle him to not eat every two hours! I love him! I really do…I must be his mom! 🙂 I love holding him and get a mix a of pride and sadness that he prefers his bed than my arms to sleep in now. I love the way he stares at me and dread the day when he doesn’t think I am the best thing in the world! I call him my little Wilbur. Anyone who has watched Charlotte’s Web as much as me (the mom of a 2 year old who LOVES pigs) knows Wilbur just loved Fern. He loved to eat and be with her. That has been my Jeremiah. He is my little buddy, sidekick in a way. I have taken him everywhere I have gone. I see that day coming to an end. Change is hard, but it is good. For now, he is still my baby!
Matt: my love…
Although I am not his mom, I couldn’t not mention him in this post. I am so incredibly blessed to be married to my best friend, Matt Deuel. Bringing J into the picture was really hard on us. Taking care of two kids-one of which was a hard baby…made tired parents for a long, long time. I know we are still going through it-but let’s just say I couldn’t have done it without this man. He is a rock…and I know that because Jesus is his foundation. I choke up thinking how blessed I am to have a husband who serves me and his boys so much everyday. I love you BOO!
As you can see, I am so blessed! One thing that God has been showing me in the last few months is being a good mom and good wife…is not everything. There is more to life. Although I am so blessed, I pray that I can use my life, my kids…us as a family to be a blessing to others and point them to Jesus. My eyes have been opened up and I pray they never get distracted-More to come!
What a sweet post girl! 🙂
