Wonder is...

my heart hurting in the best possible way when I look at my little boy

watching Dave become "daddy"

Hugo's tiny nose in profile

also his tiny fingers and toes, the way he purses his lips and all the funny little faces he makes

catching one of his lopsided smiles on camera

staring at him while he feeds, and knowing that he is perfectly content while he is nursing

how completely I have fallen in love with him and being his mummy

know that just a month ago he was still in my womb, and what an incredible miracle conception, birth and life is

that I would be so blessed in this life, and given the gift of my husband and baby

knowing that God sent His Son to earth in the form of a tiny baby like Hugo, and that He made the ultimate sacrifice for me.

Wonder is experiencing Christmas (and life) with a new perspective this year.

Five Minute Friday


  1. What an incredibly gorgeous tiny human. Love, love, love. Darling name. He makes me wonder too. Thanks for sharing. :)

  2. He is so beautiful! In a handsome kind of way. :) Babies bring the freshest perspective, don't they? Enjoy your first Christmas as a mommy!!

  3. What a beautiful child. I remember those days of wonder when my children were just babes!

  4. nothing like Christmas with a new one... i'll never forget my first Christmas as a mommy with my little guy. he's now 17, graduating this year and i've loved EVERY moment watching God grow him into an amazing man. i'm still wondering, experiencing Christmas once again with a new perspective this year as i watch him spread his wings and prepare to fly. :-)

    1. I'll bet those 17 years have flow by - I don't like to think about that too much!!! You are right though, each and every year of the journey will bring new and exciting things to marvel and wonder over!

  5. Oh the first Christmas with your new baby! You will enjoy it with yournew mommy eyes and spirit, this one and every Christmas to come :)
