My Baby Is One

9:58 PM

 Hello!  You might notice I have a new look.  You might also notice it's been a long while since I last posted.

Let me tell you....having three kids is no joke.  Having three kids is not for the faint of heart.  Having three kids is not for people who hate laundry.

Speaking of three kids, this little guy turns one tomorrow.


365 days?

In the blink of an eye.  And yet, forever. 

 I will never forget the day I found out I was pregnant with him.  The word "surprise" is an understatement.  I was blown away.  I might have been more apt to believe that the sun was blue and the sky was on fire. 

 And there he was:  this little baby boy.  The best surprise of my life.  The best thing I never knew I wanted.

One year would imply that it still feels new.  The weird part is that it feels ancient.  It feels like he has always been here. 

One year would imply that we are settled.  No, we have a mini-van that fits all of us but we are not settled.  This is still a new path.

And yet....

He is the exclamation point on the sentence of our family.

No, he doesn't sleep at night.  Yes, he still wakes up twice every night...every.single.night.  But I'm still here and he is still here and we are still functioning.

Life has a funny way of throwing curve balls.  And this curve ball?  Is the best one yet. surprise ever.
