officially a Mom…

So, I think we can all agree that I’ve been a Mom for awhile now.  However, there are times when it still seems a little surreal; like a Mom is someone way more grown up than I am.  (I felt this way after I got married too.  Being a “wife” seemed crazy.  I still don’t believe it when someone calls me Mrs.)

Well, my poor little Lincoln has been sick all week.  He has a nasty stomach virus that has led to a fever (luckily only for one day), throwing up and a lot of unpleasant diapers… The good news is, despite all of that, he is still nursing a ton, staying hydrated and in relatively good spirits, considering.

I don’t know what it is, but somewhere between the late night diaper and pajama changes, quiet warm baths, and the hours of simply rocking and cuddling, I feel like I’ve been “officially” initiated into motherhood.

Here’s hoping my little man is back to his crazy self some day soon.
