We are overjoyed to welcome our sweet boy, 𝗔𝘂𝘀𝘁𝗶𝗻 𝗝𝗮𝗺𝗲𝘀 𝗥𝗶𝗽𝗮 into the world! He made his big debut a few days before planned on Tuesday, August 11, 2020 at 3:39pm! He weighs 7.4 lbs & is 21 inches tall! Happy to finally be home from the hospital and adjust as a family of four! 💙
As I hold you today, I remember the moments when you were born. You are my first born, the one who first made me a mom.
In a few short days your baby brother will be born, love to new heights will be reached as our family expands. I cannot wait to document this next chapter in our lives because I know without a doubt you will be the best big brother!
Someone made a turtle friend! We have a pond behind our home and this little guy got lost on our pool deck. We rescued and returned him back to his pond! It was quite the little mission we went on but Mason loved the whole experience!
How I love the little moments and the joy it brought to him even if he wanted to keep him! I told my son that the baby turtle had to go back home to his turtle family back in the pond! 🐢🤷♀️
Have your children ever found “pets” and kept them?
We’re not totally there yet given my sons age! Maybe one day we will start with a little fish or something then graduate to a dog he can pick out!
When I look into your eyes, I want you to know you will always be loved no matter what is happening in the world.
I want you to never feel replaced or saddened as your baby brother arrives in a few short weeks.
I want you to know I will always love you far beyond measure.
Today, I am feeling all the emotions hit me as I look at my first born, the little boy who made me a mom. It’s bittersweet to know that the years will rush on by, and one day I will be watching my baby boy grow up to be a man.
“Men are what their mothers made them.”
– Ralph Waldo Emerson
My hope is that I raised a leader, a kind, caring, respectable gentleman making a positive contribution, and hopefully going far beyond me in the scope of his life.
