How did I even get to this point?
“And she loved a little Boy very very much; even more then she loved herself"
It’s crazy to think back on this year. So much happiness and so much love. If this kid only knew what he did to our lives. I truly never knew that I needed him so much.
Strength, determination and faith got us here. Followed by sleepless nights, diaper changes and lots of calls to friends who had kids to figure out what we are supposed to do. Hospitals these days should really send you home with directions.
They say that once you have a child, it’s a love like you’ve never felt. I always shrugged that off. I mean, I love a lot of things. I love my hubs, I love my family, I love the beach, I love coffee.... I could go on and on about the things I love. But just stop and think for a minute, do you love anything so much that it actually hurts sometimes. I mean, a full on ache, tears forming in your eyes, type of love? If you don’t have kids, you probably just answered no, but those that do, understand exactly what I’m talking about and possibly teared up just thinking about it. It really is a love like no other.
I love this boy so much, that with every new milestone that loves grows even more. The quote is true, that I love this boy very very much, even more then I love myself. Just when I think I love him the most, I find more love inside to give him.
So for me, this year flew by! For many, you have been following our journey from the first failed IVF back in 2016 and have played such a huge role in our faith and prayers. You’ve watched him grow this year through my blogs, my posts and my never ending pictures (don’t worry, they aren’t going to stop). Just when I think to myself, “I should really post less of Henry,” I run into someone at the store who says how much they love seeing his pictures, or please don’t stop posting because they like watching him grow. This year has been filled with so much joy, so much family time and so many memories that I can’t wait to see what the years to come will bring. So stay tuned.......I’m sure the terrible two blog will be much less sappy!
