This time 2 years ago I was on early maternity leave, sitting at the house waiting to have my baby. It is hard to believe, but my little boy will be 2 years old in exactly two weeks. These past two years have been very different but wonderful. When he entered my life everything changed. I have forgotten what silence sounds like. I can't leave a room without hearing crying or having someone cling to my leg. I can't go to Walmart without coming home with a new bouncy ball (Jackson's favorite toy - I have about 45 balls lying around the house). Until recently I haven't been able to sleep in my bed without his feet sticking into my back. Thankfully this past week he started sleeping in his own bed. There are a lot of things I miss but there are also a lot of things that I am thankful for. I love his smile and the way he calls me "Momma". I like to watch how excited he gets when he sees a dog. I love how he wants to hold my hand when he walks outside. I like how he wants to wear his hat just like his daddy. There are so many good things that have come from having him. He has really made my life better. I wouldn't trade him for anything in the world.
