This Time Last Year
This time last year we saw our baby boy for the first time. Our son.
Two years in the making, we knew we wanted him more than anything, but what he brought along with him was unexpected but extra special.
Little did we know that he would complete us.
Little did we know that he would make us who we are today.
Little did we know that he would bring us such undescribable joy.
Little did we know that at 5 months he already has character and a massive personality.
We’re not naive to say it’s been easy, or that we thought it would be, but raising him has given us a daily feeling of achievement. That ‘we made this’ feeling. That ‘we’re doing this!’ feeling. It’s unique and incomparable, and we had no idea we would feel like this a year ago.
We can’t believe we’re in this place most days, can’t believe that our tiny beansprout is here, that he’s the same beansprout from the picture. We thought the day would never come, but here’s definitely well and truly here. So much so, we can’t remember what life was life before him.
Thank you. It’s only been 5 months since he arrived but I forget about all the waiting beforehand. Time goes so quickly, it’s scary.
I still don’t believe the wriggly little thing inside was the same creature as my five month old. Happy first scanniversary (yep, I’m cringing at myself).
