the joy of motherhood

i thought i should post this while i was still feeling it.... i don't think you can explain this feeling before you have children. but there is a joy to motherhood, a joy that makes it hard to leave to go back to work. maybe it is my son's age (8.5 months), he is starting to interact with the world, pulling himself up on tables.... always wanting to be up, figuring out balance. laughing so hard when his dad tickles him... i want to capture it in a bottle. then joy fills my heart. i am so thankful to meet my little guy. gush.

I know exactly how you feel. Around 8 months it seems their little personalities start to really shine through. It warms my heart to see my daughter start to pretend or sit down and flip through a book like she is really reading it or giggle because she gets a joke we've made.
