As a mum I have come to love those moments that you cherish, be it the face they pull just before they cry to the true picture of peace with their eyes closed as they are nursing. I have also realize that all the technology in the world cannot capture that moment as it is fleeting and much more than you see. It is the feeling of love and the creation of that memory and bond.
My little one has left me with so many of these moments already and I am sure there are many more to come. The bottom lip and the sad moth that pop out and vanish in a moment on the lead up to a cry, the eyebrows that raise when he stares at something, or when he is eating. The precious moment at 5am just as the birds are waking and I lie there awake with him in my bed having a sleepy cuddle.
I wonder what it will be like to have that 18 year old boy telling me that he is all grown up and all I will remember is those moments of giggles and gurgles. It is true he will always be my little boy no matter how big or tough he thinks he is!
