Over eleven months have gone by? It feels like just yesterday that I came home with my little bundle of joy. Now he’s a pretty big bundle. But just as adorable none the less.
I have been busy lately planning a birthday bash for this guy. I know I can never throw a party big enough to express the love and dedication I feel for him. As we dawn on the anniversary of his birth, words can not begin to describe how thankful I am that he is here today.
Just a year ago I didn’t know what to feel, or think, or do. I was so scared and so happy at the same time, just waiting for his birthday and hoping that I would have a baby to take home. I remember preparing his room with excitement and remorse at the same time, because I probably couldn’t have bared to walk by it everyday if I didn’t have a little one sleeping there.
I look back at the year and I truly feel for all of the friends I have made and met that are in similar situations. Some who are lucky, like me, and get to hold their children every night. And some whose little angels are up in heaven all too soon. I don’t know why God chose us to be parents to this truly amazing little miracle, but I am so glad that he did. I pray everyday that I will be the best mom I can be everyday of his life, and I will continue to cherish every moment he has here on this earth.
