My baby boy is one today! At 9:37 this morning I looked at the clock and thought, exactly one year ago Thomas was six minutes away from entering the world. And now look at him. At 9+ pounds at birth, he has nearly tripled his weight! Though it is hard to believe how quickly the time went, I have no problem accepting he’s getting bigger when I have to stuff him into 18-month shirts and pick him up. As for me, fortunately I don’t have to squeeze in my clothes anymore now that I’m 65-pounds lighter than the day he was born. Yes, I stepped on the scale the morning of the C-section. I was so excited for how far I’ve come physically these past few months, I got up at 5:30 this morning, went to the gym and worked out. Then I went home to cuddle the birthday boy and wait for Daddy to return with the chocolate donuts and birthday cake… seriously. (Today was my FUN DAY.) One more thing, thanks to so many of you for being my network of support since I’ve been pouring my life’s highs and lows into this blog for 12 months. Just to know so many of you have been there/done that keeps me going. Happy Birthday, little boy. Mommy loves you so much.
