Then he fell back asleep and I put him back in his crib.
This little experience reminded me of how grateful I am to be his mom! I love being a mom, it is the best thing I have ever done in my life and this is only the beginning!
It also reminded me of my favorite talk from General Conference this past weekend. Neil L. Andersen gave a talk about the importance of having children and one of my favorite quotes was when he said:
"Motherhood is not a hobby, it is a calling. You do not collect children because you find them cuter than stamps. It's not something you do if you can squeeze the time in. It is what God gave you time for."

I'm so grateful that God gave me my time to be a mother!
