Carson turns one year old tomorrow! I was warned the first year would pass quickly, to cherish every moment because they don’t stay babies for long.I just didn’t think this day would approach so fast.
Ironically, when I look back on the past year it feels like so much more time has passed than just 12 months. So many changes. So many emotions. So many experiences. The first month passed by in such a blur. I tried so hard to stay in the moment but what I recall most from that time is the knot in my stomach and the apprehension I felt until the day the doctors told us everything would be alright; he was healthy and would live a normal life.<
On that day I took a deep breath and promised myself I would value each day I spent with him. I would take the good and bad and everything in between as a precious gift. And I can say with all honesty that the past 11 months have been filled with some of the happiest and most rewarding days of my life.
Someone once told me I wouldn’t understand the love I could feel for my own child until I actually had one. Today I can’t imagine a world without him.
Happy Birthday Little Gnome. Here’s to another incredible year!
