Day 3...I'm Thankful for...

I can not begin to explain the love I have for my child.
From the second the nurse told me I was pregnant I was attached to my baby. I had longed for a child and finally after a little struggle and some fertility help, He was conceived.
I started my bond with David specifically the day we found out we were having a boy. As soon as he split his legs on the ultrasound I knew I would call him David. So from then on, he went from being "it" to David. I talked to him for months before meeting him on July 31st, 2009 and couldn't believe my eyes when he was born. He was and still is the most beautiful child I have ever seen.
Watching him grow over the last 19+ months has been the most amazing adventure. From late night feedings to all the firsts we have experienced, I cannot express how thankful I am to have gotten to experience it all as a mom.
It makes my heart melt when he says Momma, and
I just LOVE all of my open mouth tongue kisses he so willingly gives out!
I love that he wants me in the morning and that I get to put him to bed at night.
I love reading books to him, watching him eat and tell Dixie what to do! (Sit Dixie)
I love his dimpled smile, his hugs, his laugh and most of all,
our conversations in the car when he does all the talking and I don't understand a thing.
I am so blessed and thankful to have John David Reed, Jr. in my life. He is what gets me going in the mornings, and puts me to bed early! I can't wait to see what the future holds for my precious child.
