Happy First Birthday!
One year. I have been reflecting on it for a few weeks now. He and I have changed so much. My arms don’t recognize how much he’s grown, having found their strength in his care. Not until I hold a small baby do I realize how much he has grown.
As I rocked him to sleep on his last night before he is one, I couldn’t help but reflect on all of our changes, and ponder our changes to come. While it has been a joy to watch my tiny, helpless baby turn into a toddler with preferences and desires, what I find more amazing is the complete change an adult can go through. I have found deep within me patience I did not know I had, love that can consume me, and a fierce amount of protection that scares me.
Everyday my love for this little boy grows, and I look forward to seeing its strength in each new year of his life.
Sweet sweet Soren, you make me a better person and I am so lucky to be your mama!
