Almost One.


Talk about a wave of emotions over here. My baby turns one tomorrow. I don't even know where to start. This boy came into the world so quickly. One minute I was sitting on the couch chatting with my Mom on the phone, an hour later I kissed my son on his head for the first time. The first of a million kisses before and millions more to come. I feel almost as if the year has felt that quick and strange as well. How has it been a year? The crazy thing is, not only does he turn one tomorrow, but I turn one as a mother. One thing is for sure, I am not the same person I was a year ago today. This boy has turned my world upside down and inside out and I truly don't know what I was doing with my life before him. I know I was put on this Earth to be his Mommy. Thank you God. 


I've been at a loss all week for finding anything appropriate to "post on" and actually questioned why I blog. This is all I could come up with today, with a tear rolling down my cheek. I'm off to finish some birthday preparations- this boy deserves the world!

Happy birthday to your baby :) I was so emotional over my girl's first birthday, too. It was an amazing year of growth and love for both of us so maybe that's why. Enjoy your celebrations! :)
