(Que The Sappy 1st Birthday Post)
🌿Today marks 1 year we've done life together My Jude.🌿 I'm full of so many emotions & thought I had prepared myself for your first of many birthdays. (wrote this yesterday) I was actually pretty wrong about how prepared I thought I would be. On the day you were born, I knew it was the day that would change my life forever besides finding out that I was carrying you in my womb. Your dad and I had been up all day prior to your earth side arrival anxiously waiting to meet you. I remember wondering every day as your due date drew closer if it was ever going to happen. Wondering what it would be like to hold you & wondering just how Motherhood would truly be. Also,how it was physically possible to still be pregnant! 😂 When the time finally came at 40+6 ,I was more than ready. More than ready to meet you,to love you more than i already did,to hear your cries,to touch your skin, to grow with you & see the life that we had created but most importantly be a mama. 12 hours of labor & a few pushes you were here. The people closest to my heart (& yours) were in that room that day. Still to this day I'm in shock & can't believe that I had a baby. The most perfect,blue eyed ,healthy & sweet little boy. Watching you grow & develop has been the best moments of our adventure through life thus far. They always say that you never really know what love is until you've created & cared for another life of your own. Its true,so true. You have taught me so much about life,love,happiness,patience & growth. No words,paragraphs or novels will EVER be enough to explain my love for you nor my gratitude. You are SO intelligent,love the outdoors,persistent,loving,EXTREMELY hilarious but most importantly My Boy. You are so loved by so many people Jude. I could ramble on for hours about how much I love you & Just how cool you are... 5/31/16 my world stopped for a minute & started again all with you in my arms. Motherhood isn't always easy but dang if you aren't more than worth it. I Love You Jude Ryan. Cheers To One Year My Sweet Baby.
