oh so quickly goes this life
Goodness life has been busy lately. We are prepping for Bennett's party on the fifteenth and it is requiring quite a bit of work. We are doing this one up big. I feel like it's a first birthday party and a thank you to everyone who helped us through Charlotte's death, Bennett's pregnancy and the first year of Bennett's life. A couple online friends are celebrating their rainbow babies first birthday on the fifteenth too. It makes me so happy to see them posting about their parties. We made it a year, friends! Yay!!
Summer is winding down. Bennett turning one is making me super emotional. I just want him to stay little forever. But I'm also so glad he is healthy and growing. I have one who will stay little forever. It sounds better than it is.
One year ago I was preparing to birth and meet my baby. This year I birthed a book. I've been hesitant to call it a book, or make much of it, but sad as the content - and the need for it is - I'm quite proud of it.
I just can't believe how much has happened since May 14th, 2010. I had no idea there would be so much richness and love in my life after she died. My heart still aches, there is still so much missing from my life, but there is sunshine and beauty too.
This guy is my world.
Almost one. Almost a toddler. Walking, talking, opinionated and sweet. Whew. Anyone else super emotional around the first birthday?
