A year ago

Many great and not so great things have happened this past year. Many things to be proud of, a few this to be sad about, and a few things that were so-so. I feel very blessed in so many ways. I'm blessed with a wonderful family, a steady job, a husband that loves me (most of the time :) ) and most importantly I'm blessed because I'm able to live and enjoy my life.

A year ago today, something very special happened and something that changed my life in so many ways, all good, of course. A year ago today, I found out I was expecting. I was overjoyed, excited and nervous. So many what-ifs and lots of waiting. I found a little bit of patience during that time and bonded with my husband more than before. God granted me a beautiful gift, one that I will forever cherish. Not everyone is able to have babies, some have babies that don't make it and some are blessed with children but unfortunately lose them to soon. I will never take my time with Lyla or Sean for granted.

A year ago, Sean and I's life started as a family! A family of three. I find myself filled with so much love every time I look at her, hold her, nurse her or snuggle with her. I love seeing Sean as father. I love watching him interact with her and can see just how much he loves her. Lyla has made life so much better for Sean and I. She had made our lives just a little more complete.

Thank you Lyla for bringing so much love and joy into our lives! We love you!


  1. Aw, I'm so excited to get to my mom's and hug my babies! I can't imagine my life without those two!

  2. Isn't it amazing how much a person can love those little critters. I can't imagine life without my Sylas. How did we exist before children?

    I noticed that you are fans of My Charming Kids and Kelly's Korner. I read both those blogs too. Small world in the blogsphere. :-)
