A Day to Celebrate

IMG_0950My little man is turning one today. Hard to believe a year has passed. It felt like an eternity to have you enter the world, with all the obstacles that we encountered. Three miscarriages, endless blood work, doctor appointments and the emotional roller coaster ride of grief and loss.

I had faith and I surrender the negative feelings of unfairness, envy and anger. Once I did, I knew that I would have another baby. I knew that my son would have a sibling to play and grow up with. I knew that my husband and I would fall so deeply in love with something so precious that we created.

IMG_1639I have soaked up every second of your first year. I have a mental picture of so many amazing moments that I experienced with you. The relationship that you have with your brother is so sweet. I love that you call him “DaDin” for “Gavin” and light up when saying it.

You are truly a wonderful little boy, who has completed our family. Happy First Birthday Blake! We love you so much 🙂
