Happy Mother's Day

It was a year ago today that I found out I was pregnant (ok technically the 11th, but still, mother's day). For some reason I woke up at six am today, and snuck out of bed (I swear Skyler takes over my side of the bed every night until I'm squished up against the wall in about 2 inches of space). I went through his "baby bag". We have too much stuff for a little keepsake box, we have an entire bag (it's a sparkly blue gift bag from his baby shower) full of his stuff. Things like leads from when he was in the hospital (monitors they had on him to watch his heartrate), his hospital bracelet, his first christmas stocking, his first teeny weeny tiny little hat that I crocheted that was too big on him! (Yes I cried looking at this stuff).

I spent about an hour thinking back to when I found out I was pregnant, how the pregnancy went, giving birth to him, the NICU, basically reflecting on the past year. There's just so much. I can't believe how far we've come. I even went back and read some of my blog posts from last year. So much has changed. To all of you other mommies out there I hope you have a good day.

Yes! Happy mother's day... to mommies and mommies-to-be and mommies whose babies are no longer with them and to those wonderful women who are still hoping to be mommies. You all make the world a better place, just by thinking of children first.
