I'm here to rock.

By darkness outside I knew it was early. The little cries coming from the monitors drew me to be with them. I went willingly. I gathered them both in my arms and took them in. Tears sliding down my cheek as I thanked the Lord again for these gifts.
One surprise I forgot about when having new born's is how they slow you down.
I'm sitting and rocking alot. My time is not my own. I have someone in my lap almost all the day. It could be Ellie Cate or Josie Claire, or Channie or Jo needing alittle hug. Cullen crawling up to tell me a special secret or Cooper so excited whispering to please let him hold one yet again for the 100th time that day.

No need to hurry or rush around just sitting and rocking and inviting any of my children to come sit with me.
Last night Taylor and I each had a baby in our arms, she in one chair and me in another and I thought I shall not soon forget this. Building memories in the dark with my oldest daughter.
Rocking chairs back and forth back and forth.
We talked, rocked and laughed until Scott came in and said we had to go to bed.:(
I know routine will set in as Scott goes back to work and school resumes next week, I pray I remember what I'm here for.

Rocking my babies has been one of the greatest joys of my life. Enjoy the rocking years.

This is the message I would scream from the rooftops (if I were that type of person) to all the young momas. Rock those babies because they truly are babies for only a short time.

My regrets in motherhood are always about wishing I had more time to rock, more time to talk, more time to relish the moment.

Your family is a shining light. Love you.
