I've been a bad blogger. I didn't intend to, but most of my readers (except for you Jillian) are my FB friends now, and it just seems so much easier to update FB than my blog. Poor blog.
But, this week my blog deserves some updates. It was one year ago today that the journey to Lil Major's birth jumped into high gear. I'd been home from my trip to CA for about a week or so, and my body decided that it was DONE being pregnant. I headed to the hospital for a blood pressure check, and I didn't leave for FIVE WHOLE DAYS, and when I left, I had a HUGE part of my heart in my arms...in the form of my adorable son, Lil Major.
Wow! So much can happen in a year, and it goes by so fast. I've been working on a video of the boy's first year. When Jenn told me Julianne's video was 13 minutes, I was SURE that mine would be much shorter. I didn't have THAT much to show. Well, Jenn, I got ya beat...16 freakin' minutes!! And that was cutting it down!! I don't think I'll post it on my blog, but I'll put it on my FB (Jillian - I'll email you a link to it), and if you want to gush and goo over my cute boy for 16 minutes, have at it. I won't be (too) offended if you choose not to spend your 16 minutes that way. But, I can tell you...I'll be watching it over and over and over again from now to eternity!
I will be the mom of a one year old, an official toddler I guess, in just 2 more days. We've got the party planed (just some family), we'll make the cake tomorrow, I've got gifts to wrap. All that stuff is fine...but it hasn't hit me yet. That he's going be a whole year old. That he's walking around and talking and recognizing words and GROWING UP.
I never imagined I could love him so much, or that having him would make me love his Daddy more. People try to tell you about it, but you just don't get it until it's YOU going through it. Oh how my life is different, and I love (almost) every bit of the change. Ok, so getting woken up multiple times in the night isn't so fun, but I still love to cuddle with the monster.
Our weekend will be full, and I may shed a few tears, but I think I'll spend most of my time celebrating my little boy!
