My Baby Boy is Now 1
1 seems like such a big number when you are talking 1st Birthdays. It is midnight now and his day is done. It was a very small celebration, just the kids and hubby today, perfect!
Tonight when I put baby boy to bed, I couldn't help but let him lay on my chest a little longer. I love the feel of his heart beating and the sweet little noises he makes in his sleep. I want to tell him so many things, but I just lay there whispering, I love you sweet boy. Your brothers and sisters love you. Your daddy loves you. You are loved.
I hope he will always feel he is loved.
He has filled a void that I didn't know existed until he was born. God works in funny ways like that. Just when you think you have life planned out and you know where you are going, a curve in the road ahead. Thank you God for the curves!
I look at the clock 9:55 PM.
A year ago, I woke up early in the morning to my water breaking, never happened that way before. After hours of my labor not progressing and baby's heart rate falling, I was rushed to an emergency csection. Expecting a big 8 or 9 lb baby, no ma'am your little guy is doing fine, all 5 lb. 5 oz. of him, born at 9:55 PM. 5 months of colic, never been this hard before. Lesson learned...
Expect the Unexpected and Embrace It!!
Thank you baby boy, for teaching me so much this year. I hope that you will always know that God had a reason for you and that your family loves you so much. Your daddy, brothers and sisters can't imagine a world without you in it!
Goodnight baby boy I whisper as I lay him down in his crib for the night. Sweet dreams.
