We Made It!

On this day, one year ago, my little boy came into this world.

It's hard to describe that moment. The moment you become a mother.
For me there was a mingling sense of sweet sweet relief and awe.

The hours of Jack's birth day went quickly & slowly all at once.
With no sense of time or "real life" we grew into our places as a family of three.

Tired & bleary eyed after a sleepless night,
we snuggled and stared at our sweet baby Bubba the whole day through.

This past year has been full of so many ups.
I am so blessed to have a baby as happy as Jack.

He is smart, fiercely independent, & always on the go.
While snuggles are few and far between, he makes his affections known!
Each day spent at home with him is a blessing.

I cannot believe it has been a whole year.
But this walking, talking, busy boy is proof that we have come a long way!

I firmly believe without all the love, help, support, and kindness we have been shown as a family this past year- we would not be as solid as we are, the three of us!

This post is far from the sentimental and simple symbol of love I was hoping it would be, but words are failing me today! I am so blessed to have this child in my world.

I will just leave the rest to pictures.
Forgive my limited skill with iMovie!
