A year of change

What a difference a year makes! Last year at this time I was anticipating a scheduled c-section for the next morning. Today I am playing with my sweet boy during his last day as a less-than-one-year-old! I have learned so much this last year. It has been such a whirlwind that it has only been in the past couple months that I have actually been able to assess all that I really have learned. When I found out Braxton was a boy I am ashamed to say that I was disappointed. I never thought I would react that way. I had always wanted a boy, but for some reason I could not make myself be happy about it. I shudder at that thought now. I am so blessed to have a son, and not just “a son” but Braxton. He has challenged and blessed me in countless ways. I am so grateful that God gave me the privilege and honor of being Braxton’s mommy. Everyday I am amazed by, enriched by and more and more enthralled with my “B”. God really knew what He was doing when He gave me Braxton, even if I didn’t. Happy Birthday my adorable, lovey, feisty, wonderful boy! I feel like our family is better and more complete with you in it. We love you so much!

I took a picture on every one of Braxton’s “month birthdays”. (Is anyone surprised by this??) I still can’t get over the change that can occur from month to month and certainly over the course of a year! When I look at these pictures I am reminded that as Braxton was growing and changing God was using him to grow and change me as well. I am so grateful that God works in mysterious ways and through even the tiniest vessels.

I can’t wait to watch you continue to grow, Braxton.  I am excited to see the person you will become. I know you will continue to be an amazing gift in our lives and will bless everyone who knows you with you with your loving and fun personality. Love you!!
