Nine Months.

9 months – that’s how long it took before I was able to finally look into your eyes.  Eyes filled with wondrous curiosity of a future unknown.

273 days – that’s how long it took for 2 tiny ears and 1 tiny nose to grow.

6,384 hours – that’s how long it took for a thousand tiny cells to form 10 little fingers and 10 little toes on 1 perfect little boy.

383,040 minutes – that’s how long it took for you to take your first breath – the one that took mine away.

I waited my whole life to meet you and all it took was 1 hundred billionth of a second for me to fall head over heels in love.
