days gone by

my beautiful big boy,

i was reminded today, in yoga class of how i sang these words to you- for months as you transitioned to living a life outside (outside of me but in to our family).

i am amazed by you. you who is so deeply involved in the process of becoming versions of yourself that we have yet to meet.

while watching you, though i am so excited to meet the boy you will be, i can’t help but remember when you were small enough to fit in my neck, new enough to want to be held tight against my chest, and basic enough that you were easily soothed by the hum of my voice.

how fast it goes.
