To my beautiful baby boy Tyson,
were sleeping I watched you for a while and I thought to myself, "He has
changed so much, so fast". It feels strange to know that I haven't known
you all of my life because I truly can't imagine a world without you in it. You
have brought me more joy than I have ever known and for that I am eternally
I used to
rush through things just to get to more things. Life was quickly passing me by.
Becoming your mother has taught me the importance of being present. I am still
learning, but I am also enjoying doing silly things just to hear you laugh and
I treasure being one of the primary people that you turn to when you are in
need of comfort.
before I gave birth to you, I panicked. I panicked about anything and
everything. Will I be a good mother? What if I couldn't give you everything you
needed? How would I be able to understand what you were trying to tell me? One
look at you and all of those stresses slowly faded.
is an honour that I am still in awe of every day. I look forward to watching
you sleep for many years to come.
