Since my last post I have become Mom. I went from Bah, to Bom, to MOM. Real live word - momomomomom. He says it over and over to me - especially when he is getting tired or wants to cuddle. Can I just tell you - I never realized how much it would warm my heart to hear that word. I'm falling in love with my son all over again. He is just so amazing.
I think this is true with all parents (bio and AP) - that the attachment/bonding period is not something that just happens - it is something that continues to grow stronger in your heart as the time passes. This is not to say that I haven't been completely in love for the past 8 months- what I'm trying to say is that I'm amazed how this love continues to grow and envelop you. I think I'm starting to truly understand what is so beautiful about motherhood. Some mamas might 'get it' right away, but for me it is a journey of love and understanding, and I am so happy to be on this journey.
Ok - I'm feeling a little emotional. :)
