{1000 days}

1000 days ago I met my first born for the first time.

I never knew I could love someone so much.
I still remember the first time he cried... I started talking to him and he instantly quieted down and looked at me. It was like he was seeing me, the person that he had heard and felt safe with for so long, for the first time. 
Those first few days we spent a lot of time staring at each other.
1000 days later, I still stare. 

It seems nearly impossible that he has turned into such a big boy so quickly.
Every day he grows up a little bit more.
While this makes my heart hurt a little, I know that it is inevitable. 
Before I know it he is going to be even more independent than he is already.
I try to remind myself on the busy days, to take time... sit down and play.
Because tomorrow, he might not want me to.

This age, is SO fun.
Being able to communicate with him and crack jokes, makes us giggle on a daily basis.
Kids really do say the darndest things.

From the moment he laid eyes on baby brother Beckam, he was in love.
Sometimes in fact, he loves on him a little too much.
Almost daily he says, "Baby knows that's funny!"...
perhaps because Beckam is usually smiling or squealing in his direction.

He is such a fast learner, and sure loves to farm.
He mimics whichever harvest is currently going on with his toys at home.
We have some very elaborate sugar beet and corn harvest happening in the house right now.
It's amazing how accurate it all is too.
I swear he knows much more about farming than I do...
probably because he is in the tractor once a day this time of year.

I'm so proud of my big boy, and all that he has already accomplished and become.
I can't wait to see what the next 1000 days hold... and beyond.
Love, love, LOVE him.



  1. This brought tears to my eyes! My little boy turned one last week and I have been struggling with the part about hurting a little bit, yet knowing that it's inevitable. Being a mom to little boys truly is an incredible blessing.. there's nothing like it in the world! Your family is beautiful and I hope you continue to make the most of each day with them! :)
