9 months

1st Samuel 1:27 
For this child I prayed; and the LORD hath given me my petition which I asked of him.

Zane you are 9 months old today! I really can't believe that 9 months ago you were born. It seems like just yesterday we were leaving for the hospital to have you. Time is flying by... it is extremely bittersweet! I love watching you grow & learn but at the same time I want you to stay a baby longer. I know, I know you're going to grow up but oh how I wish he would stay his mommy's baby forever. Well you always will be my baby that's for sure and this reminds of the book Love You Forever.

I'll love you forever
I'll like you for always
As long as I'm living
my baby you'll be
I cannot imagine my life without my sweet baby boy! He has drastically changed my life but I couldn't be happier. I am now a stay at home mom so I don't have to go to work every day. Instead my job never ends... but that is the best part about it. I never miss anything! I have watched him learn every single new thing throughout his few months on this earth and it has been like I am learning all those things over again. It's amazing to see the joy in his face when he has learned to do something new. I love him more than words can describe. No matter how upset or mad I am if I look at him he always makes me smile! He is the light of my life and my sunshine and I tell him this everyday by singing the song, You are my Sunshine.
You are my sunshine
my only sunshine
you make me happy
when skies are gray
you'll never know dear
how much I love you
so please don't
take my sunshine

You are the love of my life. I would do anything for you no matter what it is. I want you to know that you can come to me for anything and I will be there for you. Ever since you were born my life has changed so much but it has been the best 9 months of my entire life. You are amazing! So smart and sweet and loving. I love to watch you play and because as you play you are learning so that makes it even more fun to watch you. Everything to you is new and to you it is amazing even the smallest things. As an adult we might think it's nothing but to you it's just so cool and even funny and I love that about you. You make everything fun again no matter what it is. I can't wait to watch you continue to grow and learn and become a toddler, then a little boy, then a big boy, then a teenager, then a young man and finally a handsome man and all I can do is hope that you will be a God loving man who will love his parents even when they are old and gray. I love you so much honey and I will always be your mommy no matter how old you are! I want everything for you! I want you to be a football player or an architect or a pilot or a police officer like your daddy, whatever you choose I will be there by your side cheering you on! Because you can do whatever you want to if you just work for it! Mommy got what she wanted and that was you. All I have ever wanted in my whole life was to be a mommy and now that I am my life is fully complete. I don't ever have to do anything else and I would be a happy woman because I have you!

I thank God every single day for Him giving you to me because without you my life would be nothing. You have made me what I was always meant to be, a mommy. And you are all that I ever dreamed of and more. I never could have imagined that God would give me such an amazing son! You truly are my soulmate (besides your daddy of course!). I love you so much my love. I have so many hopes and dreams for you and the most important is that you become a man like your father because he is truly an amazing man and he loves us both more than anything else in this entire world. That is what I really want is for you to be a good man, a God loving man who loves his mother more than any other woman besides his wife who he treats like a queen. Thank you for coming into my life! I love you my sweet little baby boy! Happy 9 months!

Ephisians 3:20
God is able to do immeasurably more than all we could ask or imagine.

I want to see a crawling VIDEO! And I love the author Robert Munsch but haven't read that book, thanks for sharing all your mommie loves. Did you know that there's a website that can take your blogs entries & photo's and print it chronologically in a coffee table type scrapbook? So after a year look into it, it can save tons of time and becomes a great gift or even keepsake journal.
