I have always loved the word ephemeral. It evokes such positive scenes in my mind, such as the morning haze before the sun fully rises, the light in the fall, the feeling of a shower after a long training run….you get the picture. While all of those things are wonderful, I think the most ephemeral moments of my life are happening right now. Honestly, I wake every morning and I love the first bottle of the day snuggle. Breakfast is a hoot, especially when Shamore decides to grunt louder and louder with impatience till he finally gets his breakfast. His moods and expressions change throughout the day from the total lips overs gums smacking to the bubble blowing to the zerberts he blows and any exposed area of my skin. He is growing and learning and doing more and more every day.
I knew being a parent must be wonderful because so many people I know go to great extents to actually BECOME parents, but I guess I didn’t realize it would be this wonderful. Yeah sure, we are sleep deprived, have no time, have even less time for this we need want to do, like exercise, but it really doesn’t matter.
All that matters to us know is this sweet little man who has complete and utter control of our hearts.
Seriously, though, with a smile like this, how could you not fall head over heels for him?
