My favorite memory is caught on video! I caught my husband and baby were kicking up their legs on the bed in her room and laughing like 2 sillies and then when my baby (really toddler) saw me recording she stopped laughing and kicking, pointed directly at me, started yelling at me in baby talk and ran away like I was the paparazzi. It’s just a small flavor of her spunky personality.

wow, favorite memories are hard to choose! there are many moments of joy to recount. but i’d say i will always look back with fondness and a sense of complete satisfaction the time when i nursed my babies to sleep at night. it was a time for just she and i. the room is dark, i’m sitting in the rocking chair, holding her close. she is soft and warm and drifting off to sleep. and while i rock gently and holding her hand, i too would often drift off in the quiet peace of night…

The very first day our son was born after everything had calmed down and the last bit of visitors had left. While my husband was getting much needed rest, I was holding my little boy and was in awe. At that moment I also thought about my dad, who is no longer with us, and how proud he would have been and how much I wanted my dad to be around. At that moment, my little boy started to giggle in his sleep. Some say it may be gas … but I like to think it was my dad making him laugh in his sleep. I knew that my dad was going to be a part of my son’s life forever. He is 6 months now and still giggles in his sleep.

My favorite memory of Paige is when she was around 12 months old, for a few weeks when she’d get mad or upset about something, she’d angry baby talk at you and wag her finger at you. Like she was “tsk tsking” you – it was the cutest thing and she’d only get more upset because we’d be smiling and laughing at her. I wish I had it on video but we never got it!

My very fondest memory is on the third day of Lucy’s life, we were laying in our bed at home, no more nurses or doctors coming in and out at every other hour. We were finally alone with our baby girl. My husband and I were silenced, in awe, of the heavy responsibility tucked safely in between our bodies, peacefully sleeping. We now hold a new life in our hands, one that we feel so passionate in protecting, one in which we were so fearful of failure because everything is made anew. Lucy, whose name means light, opened her eyes and her lips starts to raise in a smile. That was when we were reassured that our Lord has fashioned this baby to be ours. We were complete in that moment, knowing that God redeemed and healed our marriage so that we are capable of raising Lucy and our future children by His grace and sovereignty. In that simple moment, I realized my dream has come true.

one of my favorite memories was when my baby was just about 4 months old – we laid him down on a pillow and i laid right next to him…he all of a sudden started cooing a lot and i’d kind of coo back…and we did this back and forth as if we were talking to each other for a good 8-10 minutes :)

it’s really difficult to choose one favorite memory but, i’ll just pick my first mommy memory. i’m adopted and so the first time i saw my son, i was so awed to be holding and seeing the first person i’ve ever had a biological connection with. obviously, biological connections aren’t the be all and end all, but it was a powerful moment for me.

My favorite baby memory is when right after my son was born, and I was holding him, how alert and focused he was on his dad on the computer screen. Dad was in Afghanistan but was able to be there via skype, and baby recognized his voice from the recordable story book Dad “read” him every night before he was born. A very cool thing to see!

I love the way my 3rd was born. I couldn’t get in touch with my husband and KNEW I needed to get to the hospital. So I had a neighbor watch my other two, drove myself to the hospital and had my son 36 minutes later. My husband made it just in time.

That has to be one of the hardest questions ever. Too many favorite memories to choose from, that’s not a bad thing. So I’m going with my first favortie memory. When I was in labor with my daughter and she was going to be the first baby in MANY years – my entire family, husband, brother, parents, grandparents and aunts were all at the hospital waiting. And they waited a LONG time. I was shocked to hear they were still all there after I’d been in labor for over 12 hours and ended up having an emergency c-section. I knew my daughter would be one of the luckiest little girls in the world to be so loved by so many special people.

I grew up overseas, in indonesia, and my favourite and most vivid memories are always sparked by smells – the smell of rain on concrete, of fresh rice paddies and food cooking over coals. I don’t smell these very often, but very occasionally I’ll catch one in the air and be right back in my childhood home!

As a grandparent of two boys age 4 1/2 and 2 1/2 and a girl age 9months i see them interact everyday. The 9mo old, Sophia, is getting around now and the boys are always trying to help her. The other day she was crying so one went for a diaper and wipes and one got her bottle.
Then when nothing happened, the older came and got grandma. My three were about the same age and two boys and a girl. It brings back so many memories.

A large bassinet was beside my parents bed, and I can recall the red thick Asian fur like bedding on their bed. The scent of baby powder brings me to this memory. The walls and windows were just cracked a little enough for a breeze in their room, I feel like I’m right there when I go into there room today. I was just four years old, I would stare into the bassinet and sit in the rocking chair beside it for what felt like days. Inside was the most magical soft little baby brother. I would peek at his unbilacord when nobody was around. It felt as if I made up a language that he could understand. My mother said he was “my baby”. I still adore my little brother, and this memory brings happy tears to my eyes.

so excited to learn of your website through dozi and 45wall design!

hmmm…i’ve been a mom for 9 months now and i suppose my favorite memory so far is when violet had her first fit of uncontrollable laughter when i first introduced her to blowing bubbles a month ago. she dissolved into giggles everytime i popped a bubble. this giggle-fest grew to a whole new level when violet simultaneously chuckled and had a gaseous explosion which vaulted her back into the cushy pillow that was placed behind her. the laughter became so contagious that i had a permanent smile plastered on my face and smile wrinkle marks that lasted a few days. at least these are wrinkles that i can definitely live with!
