Even though the birth experience was not at all what I wanted, I got my little man :) Here's a photo of me and Kian meeting for the first time:
I cannot believe that a year has gone by already! It seems like yesterday I had a big belly and was having a hard time getting shoes on my feet!
This year has been very eventful...mostly not in a good way
with all of Kian's health issues and the colic that he had during the first 4 months of life. I was just looking at some old photos on my computer and saw this one:
Yeah, you can guess that the only one having a fit is my little guy...I think he was about 3 months old at that time. At least now we mainly see smiles on Kian's face. He sure turned out to be mostly a happy baby :) If you would have told me that back at the time that this photo was taken, I would have thought you were CRAZY! hehe
Though all the rough times we have had this year, I wouldn't trade it for anything. I am so proud of my little man. It's bitter-sweet to watch them grow up...you want them to grow and be their own person and have freedom but at the same time I want to seal up the moments I have rocking Kian and things in a time capsule to open when he's 18 and graduating from high school. Right now I am going to enjoy every cuddle, hug, and kiss that I can.
What a precious gift God has given me. Happy birthday, little man :) I love you so much!
