- My husband and I bought our first home, and then we moved,
- We had our first child; a beautiful baby boy, and;
- I got a new job.
I wish I had documented some of these adventures, but I allowed them to slip away. Now they sit in the back pockets of my memory, and I am just hopeful that I don't forget anything about them (wishful thinking). My goal is to utilize this blog as a way of sharing my experiences as a wife, mother, daughter, sister, and friend to name a few. I hope that one day I can look back and relive the happy times, remember the lessons learned from the tough times and have a general record of my life, even the insignificant times.
The biggest life-change that's occurred this year is that I am now a mother. I have a precious little boy, <A>, and even though he's only been in here for seven weeks he has completely changed my life. I won't pretend that I'm gifted enough to actually articulate the changes that come with motherhood, but I can say that there is no greater blessing, responsibility, or challenge. Having a child has strengthened my faith in God, has made me generally more fearful, but overall it's made me appreciate every single day.
Waking up at 3am is not ideal but when I walk into his nursery and see his little face every ounce of exhaustion seems to disappear. When he cries I'm convinced that his hurt hurts me exponentially more. As I write this his tiny cries have prompted an impromptu cuddle, which never fail to melt my heart. I also can't believe how much more I love my husband, who seems to have been waiting a lifetime to become <A>'s father.
I feel so blessed that God thought my husband and I could handle the responsibly of raising his precious creation; what a truly awesome responsibility.
