My life was changed from the moment I found out I was going to be a mom. At the moment of holding a positive pregnancy test, I felt a mixture of excitement, panic, and joy that in 40 short weeks I would be welcoming a baby into this world.
Fast forward four years. I’m sobbing as I celebrate the fourth birthday of one of the most amazing little boys I’ve ever met. Not because I’m sad that he’s growing into a big boy, but because it went by TOO fast. WAY TOO FAST.
So today I celebrate the birth of my first born, my baby, my little monkey boy. I traded in my Coach hobo purse for a Coach diaper bag, swapped my Victoria secret bras for “comfortable” nursing bras, and wore spit up as a new accessory on my Bebe shirts without batting an eyelash. Because of this boy, I realized what it was like to hold so much love for another being that you can almost feel your heart starting to explode. The boy who tells me I’m beautiful and looks for me to kiss his boo boos. So Happy Birthday to one of the loves of my life, one of my greatest contributions to the world. The boy who made me a mommy, I love you with all of my heart!
