A year ago, God blessed me with this little boy.
Wait, isn’t he 3 months old? Why yes, but God blessed me with him a year ago. Almost exactly a year ago, God started forming this little miracle. After almost a year of trying and basically giving up, I remember realizing that I was pregnant! It was really weird actually. I was sitting in the science center with my daughter, my friend and her son. I caught a whiff of her son’s 2 hour old cheeseburger and then all I could think about was getting myself a cheeseburger. I told her how I thought I might be pregnant. On the way home, I stopped at 2 different burger joints to get myself a cheeseburger, because the first one wasn’t enough. Within a week I was so nauseous I barely wanted to eat anything, but that’s a different story.
It’s just amazing to me how individual cells from 2 different people can be knit together and duplicate and grow to form a human being. How even just that initial grouping of cells has everything needed to grow and form. How at such an early age there’s a heartbeat, arms, legs, eyes and ears. How my body was designed to carry and feed this little human and after he’s born my body is designed to carry and feed him in a different way.
So just under a year ago I found out about this little one. About 9 months ago I got to feel him move for the first time. 8 months ago I found out he was a boy. 3 months ago I did it and brought my little one into the outside world naturally after having 2 previous c-sections. And way too soon, we’ll be celebrating his first birthday, starting school, and moving away.
This last year has gone way too fast. These past 7 years of parenthood has gone way too fast. I thank God for the blessings he has given me, and the time I get with them.
