A trip down memory lane…
I’m totally taking a trip down memory lane here. Well, I didn’t cry until last night when I was putting Lennox to bed. It was weird, he pushed the pacifier away. I don’t think he’s ever done that. Then he started giggling and playing with my hair and then he reached for the pacifier and was holding it and then I was cuddling and kissing his face and then he pushed my face away. It was an interesting feeling. I know there was no meaning behind it, he was playing. He giggled more. But I just started to get emotional. And I guess that’s part of it. My baby is one year old. How in the hell did that happen?!! Everyone tells you how fast this time flies by. It’s true. I hate to say it, I hate to be one of those people, but it’s true. And I don’t want to hear it anymore. I’ve heard it for the past year, I get it and I agree. Clearly I’m a little touchy today. I’m looking back over the past year and how challenging it was, how amazing it’s been, how much my husband and I have grown to love our son. Like I said in another post, I never knew I was capable of loving this much. I love staring at my husband, I could do it all day. But I LOVE staring at Lennox! LOL this kid is funny, he’s intelligent, he laughs and he makes us laugh. He enjoys life, he’s curious, he’s happy! Oh my goodness is he happy! How on earth did I get so lucky to be the mommy of such a sweet and happy boy? Thank you, God for the opportunity to be a mother! Thank you God, for making me Lennox’s mother! Thank you, God for bringing Lennox into our lives. I am forever, forever grateful.
Happy birthday sweet boy! Daddy and I love you so incredibly much.
