One Year Ago Today...

You were a word that gave us so much hope... a word that made my heart skip a beat... a word I never thought I'd see again... a word that made me equal parts terrified and thrilled... a word that promised a life I had dreamed of for so long... a word I showed to your daddy over the top of the shower curtain, which caused him to jump out of the shower naked as a jaybird and soak me from head to toe as he wrapped me up in his arms.

And this morning, a year later, you slept in my arms in our quiet house, and my heart was so full and I just kept telling God - thank you, thank you, thank you, for this sweet, perfect, incredible baby boy... <3


  1. I remember the email and the positive test and the fear and the worry and the praying!!! Crazy to think that one whole year has passed since then :)

    1. I know it! I so remember my anxiety-filled emails to you. And now, look at us!!!!
