So this Thursday we are celebrating our son’s 7th birthday! I am still in shock this weekend that it is already here. Seven years ago when he was born he changed my world forever and my heart about exploded with love! Up until the day he was born I was wrecked with fear and anxiety awaiting to hold this precious baby in my arms. We lost our first baby during delivery and was left unexpectedly empty-handed. When we found out we were expecting our second time it was an absolute joy.
When he was born my heart was overwhelmed with joy, love, grief, guilt, and so much more. I was so thankful he was born screaming and fit perfect in my arms. I held him every chance I had. I rocked him to sleep. I loved this tiny little person so much and stole my heart. He still does everyday.
I look back at his pictures and I am amazed at the boy he has become. He is sweet, caring, passionate, loving, and can still be all boy. He loves for our family to be together at all times. He challenges me and make me a better person every day. I love how he still calls me mama. He still loves our koala hugs. If I seem to be sad or hurting he’s always in tune and always makes sure to come up to me and kiss me and say’s you’re the best mama and I love you. He melts my heart.
It has been an absolute amazing almost seven years with this little guy and he brings such joy to our family. I always say I love you several times a day especially when I have to discipline. I love who God has created him to be and I hope and pray that he will always count on the Lord and put hope in his word.
