This has been a whirlwind year of ups and downs and twists and turns and I have to say that it has been the best year of our lives. Two years ago we were the couple that were never going to have kids and we did whatever we wanted, whenever we wanted. One failed contraceptive later and we were thrust into the life of (un)expectant parents.
Our little boy is the best thing to ever happen to us. He has the most amazing attitude, he’s funny, smart and everything any parent could hope and wish for. We should write a letter to the makers of said contraceptive company thanking them for the failed device because otherwise we would not have him in our lives.
I have watched my husband grow into an amazing father. It wasn’t easy at first. We had our son on the week of Thanksgiving and went full force into one of the worst winters on record. The onslaught of snow and crazy winter weather had us stuck in the house with a newborn as new parents. It was rough, but spring made way and with that, so did our budding family. Seeing my husband in full daddy mode, changing diapers, going on Daddy/Son jogs around the neighborhood, being Mr. Mom in the morning when I leave for work and bee lining it for his little boy to scoop him up at the end of a long day at work melts my heart and makes me fall in love with him all over again daily.
He supported me when I was going back to work after 8 wonderful months home with our baby boy. He supported me if I wanted to stay home. I was back and forth on that decision everyday and I can honestly say that I can’t imagine I was an easy person to live with when I was going through those intense emotions.
I planned our son’s first birthday party and I just had to take the time to post these feelings that planning this momentous event has brought up within me. This Mama couldn’t be a happier lady 😊
