Listen (Tuesday@10)

Through the amazing community of Five Minute Friday I found another site to meet up with other bloggers and write on a prompt word.  So this is my first week and the prompt word was Listen.  I focused on what I listen to daily.  The little boy who changed my life so much.

Through the amazing community of Five Minute Friday I found another site to meet up with other bloggers and write on a prompt word.  So this is my first week and the prompt word was Listen.  I focused on what I listen to daily.  The little boy who changed my life so much.

I hear the sound of my little boy. The miracle that he is as he Is growing and changing each day. The sounds I hear are sweet music to my soul. They keep me going as a Mom as I listen I hear…

…the sound of his infectious giggle
…the random babble that only a one year old can understand
…the soft beep beep sound as he pushes on my nose
…him thinking and I wonder how much he already knows
…him cry out needing my comfort and love
…the softness of his breathing as he snuggles in close

I’m always listening, ready to react, ready to love. 

I remember the joy and pride in watching him roll over for the first time. And then sitting up on his own and then one day I heard him crawling, now I only hear the fast pitter patter of little feet learning to run. 

The days are going by so quickly.  And soon he will be all grown up and won’t need me like he does right now. So I’ll listen as my baby continues to grow. He won’t always be little, but he will always be mine to love.
