During this coming week, my little boy, the love of my life, my sweet Angel is turning ONE! One year old. I've been very busy with plans and preparations as this monumental birthday draws near. In truth, I think I'm just keeping busy so the shock of my little guy turning one doesn't settle in. I can't believe it's been a whole year since that day that my life changed. Everyone always says "oh, they grow up so fast" and "you never know love until you become a mother (or father)" Those phrases are so cliche, but beyond true. I can't imagine my life without my little guy and sometimes I love him so much I feel as if my heart will explode. This whole last year has been one big blur and I feel guilty for not remembering how old he was when he said his first word, or took his first step. I have no idea how old he was when he first learned to crawl...and now he walks. My memory has been something of a nuisance to me for my whole life. I block out the good, the bad and everything in between. So this week as I'm getting the food ready and the decorations up I am really going to try concentrating on the small details and remembering them. Last night as I was rocking my baby to sleep, I studied his eyelashes. They are so long and curl up at the ends, I think I know a hundred women that would be jealous of those eyelashes. They are beautiful and I studied them so long I think they are ingrained in my head, yay, one memory for this week accomplished. Just kidding, but in all seriousness, I would encourage anyone reading this to definitely take some time out these next two weeks, among the hustle and bustle to stop and appreciate something in your life, and ma. Be it an ornament on your tree or a warm cup of coco. Don't let the Christmas season pass you by in a blur. Cherish the little "things" in your life! That is my Christmas wish for you!
I'm an open book. I can be too honest for my own good. Maybe a blog isn't the best idea for a person like me, but I can be quite entertaining at times. Plus, a blog is good for search engine rankings...lol, I'm such a nerd!
