One year ago today, our lives changed forever. Little did we know exactly how much it would change. Our family of 2 became a family of 3.
I will never forget the moment JJ was born and they laid him on my chest. It was instant, overwhelming love. I had no idea how different my life would be starting right then. The sleeplessness, the nursing, the constant worry - it all started immediately. And every single moment was worth it. I would do it all over again in a heart beat. I never knew I could love someone so much!
We watched our son grow from a tiny newborn to an active, happy baby. Before we knew it, he was sitting up by himself, eating finger foods, crawling, and talking! It was all happening way too quickly!
Today, our beautiful, sweet, baby boy turned 1. It is a very bittersweet moment for this Mommy. I love the fact that he is growing and becoming a strong little boy yet, my heart aches when I think that he has already reached toddler-hood. Where has the time gone?
I thank God for giving me the precious gift of being JJ's Mommy. I cherish my little boy and am so blessed to get to love him, nurture him, care for him, and (Lord willing) watch him grow from a little boy to a young man.
I love you, Sweet JJ, I love you, I do.
I love you, Sweet JJ, my love is so true.
I love you, Sweet JJ, I love you my boy.
I love you, Sweet JJ, you are Momma's joy!
