My baby turned one. I cannot believe I have a one year old. How is this possible? How did time fly by like this? I never would have imagined seeing this boy of mine reaching all these milestones, growing, developing, grasping all the world around him. 5 years ago, never would I have imagined I’d be blessed with so much happiness. It seemed like a distant dream, becoming a mom. I came to believe it would never happen. Yes, there came a point in time where I had lost faith. It would annoy me to see other women being pregnant and I would think “why not me? Am I not good enough? Maybe I’m better off.” The things we women allow ourselves to think regarding motherhood can be hurtful at times. It was never about any of the things I felt or thought. It was about timing. God’s timing. And no one else’s.

Fast forward to today. He is here, in my arms, healthy, happy, ever the little explorer/observer. Moody (like his momma), curious and handsome (like his daddy), strong willed… and I love it. It’s been such a beautiful journey and I know it will only get better as time goes by. I am forever greatful.

 

Thanks for stopping by…xoxo
