one year ago...

One year ago today our sweet baby Leo came into this world and what a year it has been! I have experienced and grown so much since that day, in ways I never knew were possible. After my c section, my teeth would not stop chattering and my whole body was so tense from the surgery and numbing medicine. I'll never forget when Chance and Leo came into the recovery room and I was able to hold Leo for the first time - my whole body was calmed. Looking into those perfect and innocent eyes, I knew that he had come straight from my Heavenly Father. I have had to recall those feelings throughout this first year during the late nights, early mornings, and tears
to remind myself of the great blessing and responsibility of being a mother. I love my little boy with all of my being and I love how he has enhanced my love for Chance and my understanding of eternal families. Happy first birthday Leo!
