Dearest Hammie,

I am not good at a lot of things – sharing my favorite snacks, asking for help when I desperately need it, saying I’m sorry – but thank you for making me really good at one thing. I am really great at being your momma.

The days in the hospital were rough but, once we got home, things kind of just fit. I learned your different sounds and you learned to navigate my twice-the-size-of-your-head boobs.

Six months ago you made me a momma and everyday I am proud to hold that title. So much has changed in those few months but you and I just seem to work.  You are the white to my rice. My sidekick. I am going to hold on tight to these few days that you think I am the greatest because, I fear, soon you will realize how fab your daddy is. You look just like him and you already have his silly sense of humor.

But ***shhhhhhh*** for the next little while you are still mine. I am going to keep reminding myself that you make me great. You make me really good at one thing…. being your momma.

Love Always!

Your Momma


One thought on “Great

  1. Your ability to put your feelings in to words amazes me! You are a good writer, don’t think there has been a “blog” that you have written that doesn’t make me “tear up”!!
    You are GOOD at MANY things but… are really GREAT at being a MOM….. Winslow is a lucky little girl !!
