Parenthood and Tucker J

So parenthood is a whole other story! I thought I was a pretty chill person, but now I have become some obsessive overprotective mother. Not because Tucker is out of control or anything but because he is a whole other person that can't take care of himself and I am completely  responsible for him. I think I have finally calmed down a little, but seriously, nobody can tell you anything to prepare you for how it feels. Sometimes he spits up out his nose, and it is the saddest thing because I can tell how much he hates it. Or when I know his tummy hurts, I just want to take all the hurt away. It's crazy to think that someday he will be making choices on his own, and that he will make mistakes and not always do exactly what will make him happy. It just kind of puts things into perspective. Heavenly Father watches us down here, and I am sure his love for us is more than I can even imagine. It has to be the hardest thing to watch his children go through any pain or see them make decisions that don't always lead to happiness. Even though it is hard sometimes to watch this little guy hurt, it is so worth it to have gained all the love that I have for him. I wouldn't trade it for anything!

You need to move here right now. I can't take it! Look how big he is! Are his eyes blue? They look blue. It's not fair how am I ever going to be his favorite aunt when I never get to see him? :(
