David turns 1
Handmade Gifts: DIY jeweled hair elastic
On Saturday, December 13th, David will be one year old!
This year has truly been full of immense joy. There were certainly challenges mixed in as well, as any mother can attest to, but the rewarding and wonderful times far outweigh the tough ones.
It’s odd to be pregnant again during this time of the year, especially as I reflect on this having been my last week of pregnancy with David last year. I was so excited to meet him! We had chosen his name at this point so I loved referring to him by name and waiting in great expectation to hear his cries on 12:37p on that unforgettable Friday.
A former client, from my days behind the chair, told me once that she wrote a letter to her kids on their birthday every year. I’m writing one to David this week. It will stay private, of course, and I’m not sure how I’ll be able to fit all that I want to say about the first year of his life on a sheet of paper!
I have so enjoyed the time that it has been just David and I for the past 12 months. I can hardly believe there will be another baby here in February, and I’m so anxious to see the relationship form with David and his sibling!
I was forewarned that boys take up a special place in a moms’ heart, and my love for the one who made me mom continues to multiply with every passing day.
