One Year

On the eve of Max's first birthday, I can't help but reflect on this year and how quickly it went by. Granted, the first six weeks were some of the hardest and longest weeks of my life due to no sleep and adjusting to being a mom. But, seriously.

How did my baby go from this

to this curious little man?

One of the greatest things I have learned from being a mom is to enjoy every moment, and to make the most of every day. That's not always easy when you've had a sleepless night and a very cranky baby the next day. But babies grow so fast, and I'm sure in the blink of an eye, Max will be all grown up. I'm no where near the mom I would like to be yet, but I am so thankful God gave me this chance to be Max's mom. I love him so much and look forward to many adventures with this sweet and fun-loving little boy. Happy one year, Max!
