There are no words...

I have finally conceded.
After four years of trying to describe how I feel about Nate, I realize now the language that I know has failed me.
I've made valiant efforts, but none of those efforts have come close to truly capturing the feeling I have when I look at this little boy I call my son.

I've said he is the end of the rainbow.
I've said he is the apple of my eye.
I've said he is the greatest blessing my family has ever known.
The relationship between Nate and his big brother Andrew is one of most beautiful expressions of love I've ever seen.
I have done my best to tell the world that his life is so valuable and important and worth living.
He has brought so much joy to the people in his world that I am still amazed when I see it. 
I don't exaggerate when I say people line up to be with him, have their picture taken with him, have him reach out to them...
I am the luckiest woman in the world because this little man calls me Muma.


  1. Yep, I am DEFINITELY one of those people who line up to see Natie! Are those pics from that fall photo shoot? LOVE!

  2. Sometimes I am jealous that you are his momma and not me! I'm so glad you let me be part of his life :) He is wonderful, and tremendous (and so are you....) but you are right. There are no words to describe the love we have for this little guy.

  3. Beautiful. I have a hard time putting my love for my little guy into words, too. No sadness here for me!

  4. Oh, my! I just read the "Welcome to Holland...No Thanks" link on your sidebar! LOVE IT! The post I added on my blog last night is called, "What I Hate About Holland."
