putting the difference into words

I'm forever grateful to my first born for the gift of motherhood, for he made me a mama and started me on this journey of boundless love.  To my second born I'm forever grateful for the opportunity to savor motherhood, for he gave me the fortune of delighting in the fleeting moments of neediness and innocence I fumbled through and rushed past the first time around.

Love this! Beautiful put! I am definitely enjoying the newborn stage a lot more this time around.
