Now, a year later, I know the difference. THIS was my first Mother's Day. After almost 11 months of late nights, early mornings, dirty diapers, round the clock feedings, kisses, hugs, snuggles, and lots of laughs, it's pretty clear. As much as carrying around a baby in my belly made me feel like a mom, holding Sage in my arms was a whole new feeling.
Being a mom is the greatest thing I've ever done. It's probably the greatest thing I ever will do. I couldn't ask for more. I love this boy so much, and am so happy to be his mom.
