One year ago...





A year ago I couldn't sleep, so I got up, got dressed and went grocery shopping at 4:30am. I was stressed about Wyndham being so sick and not bouncing back after her seizures. I was feeling worn out and run down and to top it off I had a strange feeling that I might possibly be pregnant.
So I bought a pregnancy test and took it as soon as I got home from the store. My suspicions were confirmed early on that morn of January 25th.
What I couldn't have known though, was how much love he would add to our life and home. I couldn't have dreamed up bigger eyes or a cuter smile or a more perfect nose. I had no idea his skin would be so soft, his hair so silky, or his laughter could make my heart almost burst. A year ago I wondered just how life would be for our family as we would have to make room for new baby. Now I know. It almost makes me want to have three more.

I know what you mean. Yummy soft baby hair and irresistible cuteness. That's why I ended up with 5 kids, and if I hadn't gotten so darned OLD, I'd probably have even more!

He certainly is irresistible!! Such a cute little man. Every time I see a baby I want another one too. I'm on the far end of advanced maternal age though so no more for me.

Much love from NJ,
