A year ago today…

A Year Ago Today
A year ago yesterday I was 40 pounds heavier.
{42 pounds to be exact–yes, I’m serious}
A year ago yesterday I felt like a third grader the night before the first day of school {times infinity}.
A year ago yesterday I was wearing a pair of your daddy’s basketball shorts because they were the only thing that fit.
A year ago yesterday I was cramming in the last few chapters of “the Baby Whisperer” hoping to learn all the secrets of being a new momma.
A year ago yesterday I stayed up all night in anxious anticipation.
A year ago yesterday I sat in your room and went through all your clothes one by one. I ran my hands across your crisp bedding. I tested out the new plush rocking chair and I imagined what it would be like when I brought you home later that week and we sat down cuddled together.
A year ago yesterday, I couldn’t even begin to fathom to depths to which I would love you.
And then, after a very quick c-section delivery,
A year ago TODAY–you were born!
{And my heart nearly exploded}
Happy FIRST Birthday to my smiley boy!

    Happy Birthday Baby W! I can't believe how fast time has gone. I remember holding him when we was just a few weeks old and having to fight to not let anyone else take him from me. I LOVE YOU BABY (or not so baby) BOY!
