His first birthday!

Posted on: September 12, 2014


Last week my baby celebrated his first birthday.  Hard to believe he is one year old already!  It seems like it was just yesterday when I was laying in a hospital bed holding him and staring into his sweet little face.  I remember one of the first things I thought when I saw him was how much he looked like his older brother.  One of the sweetest moments I had in the hospital was seeing “G” hold his little brother for the first time.  It was such a precious moment and I will never forget it.


Going from one to two children was more difficult than I thought it would be.  Days filled with a helpless newborn needing diaper changes, to be nursed, clothed, and have his every need met by a mother who was trying to survive on barely any sleep and keep an energetic three-year old who just wanted to play occupied all day.  Long days followed by long sleepless nights.  Many, many long days and nights.  I remember feeling like it was too hard and I couldn’t do it.  Could I really venture into the world of a stay-at-home mom and succeed?  Did I have enough time and love to give to both of my boys?

A good friend once told me, “The days are long but the years go by quickly.”  She was right.  Now here I am a year later.  A year full of extremely long days that I thought would never end; some harder than others.  And, here I am barely believing my baby is a year old.  No matter how cliché it sounds, time really does go by quickly.
