baby boy

Dear baby boy,

Someday, you won't let me put my face right up next to yours

to smell your sweet warm breath

Someday, I won't be able to tuck you in next to me in bed

when it's too early to get up

Someday you might not let me kiss you on the lips

or even the cheek, or even the top of your head

And someday I'll have to stop holding your face against my breast

and blowing raspberries on your belly.

So please, grow up slowly, baby boy

Please don't rush

Because you smell so sweet, and you are so warm next to me

And my heart is already breaking

even as you smile up at me.


  1. This is so sweet - I have a 7 year old and a 2 month old boy, and it's so true. Thank you for sharing. ♥

  2. This is nice... and just how I feel. I keep thinking as I play with Logan how big he is already and how he'll never be that itty bitty tiny little newborn ever again! And how important it is to cherish each stage he goes through, without either hoping for the future or wishing for the past. :) It's such a special feeling to raise a child!
