one year

…hello my one year old boy…

This time last year, I was being admitted to the hospital with my contractions coming every 2-3 minutes. It was a scary time, but very exciting as well. My labor was fairly short for a first time pregnancy lasting only a little more than 8 hours, but not as smooth as I had expected. Thankfully, I was blessed with a very kind nurse Monica who stayed even past her shift time just to see me through, and also our persistent Ob/Gyn who was adamant about not having to do a C-section on me. At the end of it, my mom was crying, I was crying, Sam was smiling crazily, and we had a beautiful baby boy.

I’m so thankful for this past year. It’s really true how being a parent opens your eyes to so many things and I’m so awed that God has entrusted this little boy to us. I praise God for blessing us with our son and how He has been with us throughout this year, from it’s rough start to the daily joys and smiles.

Sam and I have been looking forward to our little boy turning one, but also somewhat sad to see his baby days gone so today’s been a somewhat bittersweet day. We’re so excited though for this second year with Samsam. I pray that God continues to move in his life and will continue to help Sam and I as we parent him.

Happy birthday my little boy!  When you wake up, you’ll be officially one!
