my mister beggetio

My baby boy or maybe more appropriately, my little man, is turning six years old today. As a mother each birthday breaks my heart just the tiniest bit. I become frantic, scrambling. Seeking for some way to slow down time, or stop it altogether- just for a spell. To stay in this season, where I can hold them and touch their sweet faces. This span that he and I snuggle and explore and I am his world. 

I do realize though the beauty that comes with the evolution. The changing of babe to boy to man. To watch them grow and change, to get to be a spectator, to play a role in his story- it is an honor beyond comprehension.

This kid is good. He is kind and incredibly sensitive. To guard his heart you must tread lightly and handle him with ease and grace. He is rough and tumble, full of never ceasing energy and excitement. He is brave and adventurous, shy and reserved. 

Zain means 'light of God' and he is just that- a light to all who meet him. Happy Birthday my sweet boy, I will love you always.

  10. It was a pleasure seeing his photos and how he has grown so quickly! I hear parents, all the time, talk about how quickly their children are growing and I've never really gave it some thought because I don't have a child yet but I'm sure when that time comes, I'm going to weep like a baby as I watch them grow! Happy Belated Birthday to your little man!

  12. What a beautiful, little boy! I have been babysitting the same little boys for about two years now and it gets me every time I see them how much they grow up in the days since I last saw them. If only there was a spell, but, like you said, there is a new beauty in the days and moments to come that you do not want to miss out on.
