But I did a few things today that made me say I'm officially a mom.
I carried Eli and a basket of clothes up the stairs - one on each hip.
I "lysol-ed" toys that were already prepackaged. (Doesn't help that he's sick)
I wiped a snotty nose 38x today (Okay, I didn't really count...)
but, the one that I noticed most today was when I put the farm fridge on the fridge. I thought about my friends Noelle, Angel and even my siblings who are all moms. Their kids are like 3 and up and the little barn is still on their fridge. Maybe I'm silly to think about a little barn this way, but seriously - I felt so blessed tonight when I stuck that thing on the fridge. I smile just thinking about Eli getting to play with it.
All I know is that Eli has made me a mom and that is the best thing to date. He's my sidekick and I'm so glad to be home with him.
Happy 11 months (and 4 days) Elijah!
