Dear Journal,

I gotta say…I have never known a love like this before. From the moment I saw him on his first sonogram, I’ve been obsessed with this little guy, but something happened when he first came out and I held him for the first time. It’s a feeling I can’t explain, but it it’s a euphoric feeling that consumed every fiber of my being. Every time J’Aiden looks at me…every time he smiles at me, every time he snuggles against my chest, it’s as if I discover a new level of love. To think of the miracle of him…he is living proof of the power of God. Honestly, I’m just so darn grateful to be his mama.

Like every other mom, I LOVE taking pictures and videos of J’Aiden. I thought I’d be able to control myself (Seriously, WHY did I think I could do that?), but I just want to document everything! I mean, I may be a little biased, but I DO think he is the cutest baby boy EVER, which is why I wanted to do something special with him. I got the idea of doing a monthly photo project from my dear friend Amanda, who has done one with each of her daughters. I’ve always thought it was the cutest thing to document the growth of children in such creative ways and I always said when Ethan and I have or first child, that I wanted to do the same. J’Aiden has grown so much so far. His smile, his eyes…it’s so crazy to watch him change every single day. I feel like it’s happening so fast!!!

I’m so excited to start this sonogram and bowtie series because it’s so surreal to know he’s here after seeing him for so long in my stomach throughout my pregnancy. Watching him hold his own sonogram makes me smile like crazy and if you’ve seen our marriage celebration photos, you just may recognize the bowtie from when Ethan wore it. I hope as he gets older, he loves them just as much as we will. It’s such a fun way to spend time with him and these pictures are not only for me, but these will one day be gifts to him…for him to see himself the way I’ve always seen him: INCREDIBLY beautiful.
