MINE

At one point I was "mama". For the last few months, I'm just "MOM!". Judah isn't even two yet, shouldn't I get a few more years of the "mama" or "mommy" talk? Although, as if just to make up for it, Judah has the sweetest new "I love you" that I've ever heard.
Starting yesterday, the "MOM!" was replaced.
I am now "MINE."
Yes, like his blanket or car or stuffed animal duck. MINE. I think it's telling of how he views me in his life. He's right. I'm a taken woman. Owned.
I'm Judah's.
And I'm ridiculously proud that I am.

I don't know about you...but, I was so upset when Leul switched from Mommy to Mom. It was so "grown up." It was so, not as needy. It was so.... a realization that my Leuly has a voice of his own and he was going to choose what he called me. ohhh poop. But now it allows me to say "LEUL" instead of "Leuly" More serious right. :-). Hey Turn about is fair game!! J/k. These boys are growing wayyyyyyy to fast!

Wow, mom already?! I think I'll be a little sad when that day comes for me. Thankfully, I'm still momma. "Mine" is too cute though! I know you must be proud to be his. So lucky you are! :)
