Today is somewhat bittersweet.  I am so happy to be celebrating Nate’s 1st Birthday but I am still somewhat shell shocked that my baby is no longer a baby…although I now understand why once a mother’s baby, always a mothers baby.

I only wish that we weren’t quite so busy with the crazy things life thows at us, so that we could have some time to really celebrate!  The painting is (finally!) finished and the unpackers are arriving in an hour, so today will be rather hectic.  But all day long I will be thinking, in the back of my mind, that one year ago today my life changed forever.   One year ago today I finally met the person I had been waiting for for 9 long months.  One year ago today, I became a mom.

Happy Birthday Little Man!
