Matthew brought me to tears today. He was lying in my arms, smiling and cooing, and I was so amazingly in love with him that I thought my heart would explode. I know that that pure love that he feels for me can’t last forever, so I hope to stop and truly take in every moment now while he still adores me. He is a dream child. Something deep in my soul knows that I was meant to have him–to know him. He has a tenderness about him, a vulnerability, that makes me want to hold him near and just breathe him in. I could have never imagined how much I would love him, how much I would be grateful for his existence. He, like his sister before him, brings me profound joy. I am beyond blessed to have these two beautiful babies.
