365 days.

1 year. 52 weeks. 365 days. 8,760 hours. 525,600 minutes. 31,536,000 seconds.

My baby boy turns 1 today.

I can’t begin to describe how I feel.  Years ago, I never thought I’d have any children, let alone three.  But then my first child, a daughter, was born and after a difficult year with postpartum depression, as the fog lifted, I had a moment of clarity.  She was almost a year old and I sat with her in the nursery, reading Goodnight Moon as she drank her bottle.  I saw an image in my mind of sitting in that exact chair, surrounded by three children.

One year ago, that picture became a reality.

Happy 1st birthday to my beautiful, beautiful boy.  You have brought me so much joy in the past year.
