Enough For Two

When I had my first baby, I had endless moments of holding him, completely overwhelmed by the amount of love I felt for this little person. There was no child so perfect, so beautiful, or so full of life as my son.

We would sit in the rocking chair and I’d look in his eyes and we’d goo and coo at each other. I remember making up this little song that I would sing to him over and over.

Do you know that I love you so much?

Do I tell you I love you enough?

Do you know little guy, that for you I would die in a moment?

I would give it all up for you, baby boy.

The older he got the less chances I had to hold him and sing. Staring in his beautiful big eyes changed to trying to hold his attention long enough to have him listen to me.

My little girl was laying on her tummy time mat smiling up at me, and my boy was perfecting his new skill of jumping like a kangaroo. There was just so much love. My kids are a gift, a treasure in my arms. Then I remembered that song.

Do you know that I love you so much?

Do I tell you I love you enough?

Do you know little guy, that for you I would die in a moment?

I would give it all up for you, baby boy.

It blew me away that I had the same rush of love for now not one, but two little people. Two people to pour out my love, songs and heart. Two people who I would die for.

Funnily enough it was a fear of mine that I would not be able to love my second with the same intensity as I love my first.

Love is certainly multiplied among your children, it can never divided.

One thought on “Enough For Two

  1. I’ve been thinking the same thing the last few days. It’s amazing how much I love both Shae and Oliver! It’s kind of hard to imagine how that looks before child # 2 comes along but it’s not really that complicated. It looks like double the love! 😀
