I can only think of the most cliche sayings when it comes to my son…he’s the apple of my eye…he is my everything. Everything – that just about sums it up. About 4 months ago I got the most important responsibility of my life.
He’s just about the most perfect baby ever. Most of the typical questions you get I could answer with what most people only dream of saying. How is he sleeping at night? oh about 10 or 11 hours. how is breastfeeding going? he is a natural! Although we don’t have the perfect schedule down yet (we’ll discuss that in another post), things are just right for us.
I have pretty much always known that I wanted to be a mother. It took us a little longer than we would have liked, but he has a plan for all of us, right??? Maybe that’s a thought for another post. Lots of good ideas here!
We couldn’t have found out we were expecting at the most perfect time. It was a year ago today and we were spending the holiday weekend with my parents in St. Louis. We took a test and had a grin on our faces ear-to-ear. Of course we had to tell my parents!!! They were thrilled…and I think a bit shocked to find out.
I absolutely loved being pregnant. If I could always be pregnant and just keep popping kids out (and we could afford it) then I would! Well as you know, about 9 months later, I had a beautiful baby boy. Twenty hours of labor and the boy’s head was just too big to fit, but we gave it a good try. C-section here we come! It all happened so fast. When the doctor pulled him out it was like he had always been a part of our lives and I finally found out what I wanted to be when I grew up…A MOM!!!
I love you Fisher Elliot – born at 2:46 pm on May 10, 2013; weighing in at 8 lbs. 12.6 oz and 22 inches long. My life. We hope to be adding to the brood soon! 😉
