Precious Moments

Filed under: Uncategorized — by lhoham @ 8:09 pm

I am so lucky. I mean SO lucky. My life is absolutely perfect right now. I go through my days not wanting to forget a single second of my life. I wish I could just bottle it up and keep it in my pocket forever. Here are some of the things I don’t want to ever forget:

  • They way Nathan smiles at me when I go to get him out of his crib in the morning – he lights up with joy!
  • The way Nathan smells – that sweet intoxicating baby smell.
  • The way his little hand grasps my finger with such a strong grip
  • The way he holds on to my shirt when I’m nursing him – so content.
  • The way he screams as if he’s never eaten in his whole life when he is ready to eat.
  • The way he turns his head down and into his shoulder as if he is so shy.
  • The way he kicks his little legs constantly as if he needs to show them who’s boss.
  • The way he is captivated by lights in the ceiling.
  • The way he falls asleep in my arms even before we read our bedtime story.
  • The way his cute little mouth drinks his vitamins at night.
  • The way he snuggles into my shoulder when I’m holding him.
  • The way he loves to sit in my lap and hang out or read books.
  • The way his cute little toes curl up when I go to play with his feet.
  • The way he sometimes lets this little scream out after he sneezes.
  • How smooth his skin is – perfection.
  • The way he sucks on his hands all the time!
  • How he has one little extra ridge on his right ear that’s not on his left.
  • That he has one single eyelash that is 50% longer than all the others on his right eye.
  • The fact that he can go from screaming mad to totally content just by putting him in a warm bath.
  • The fact that he loves it when I give him so many kisses.
  • And the way he makes my life complete.

I am so happy right now!!



  1. Awwww…That is such a precious post. Having a blog really allows us to put down our thoughts so we will never forget them. Life is so sweet with beautiful babies to love and adore.

  2. To watch your baby blossom and thrive as a mommy is truly one of life’s great joys. Nathan is a lucky little boy to have you and Ross as his parents. And I am so lucky to have all three of you…plus Mr. Riley Dog! Dad, AKA Gramps, also read this post and I do believe I saw a lump in Mr. Tough Guy’s throat.
    Love you. Mom

  3. Those precious moments are the best…and it is even better to write them down to remember forever! Every once in a while, I do a similar blog post about Micah (and I’ll have to start that for Twoey, also).
