October 2010 vs. October 2011

What a difference a year makes!

Little Man’s First Birthday

One year old tomorrow.

I'm ready for cake!

My little boy is one year old tomorrow. How is that possible? I’m seriously muddled on my emotions. He is becoming a toddler in every way – he walks, he babbles constantly and he throws fits. He’s not very good at the last part, his heart doesn’t appear to be in it and I have a sneaking suspicion that he feels a tad silly. He understands that he can make people laugh and tries to do so whenever possible.

When I think back to the day he was born it seems like a distant hazy memory, like something that happened to someone else or a dream I had once. Yet, the day I carried him into our house and freaked out about germs and neatness and the overly excited dog is as fresh in my memory as this very morning.

A friend asked me how my life had changed since my Little Man graced the world. It’s such a huge question, but I stand by my simple answer – perspective. I know now what is important, I know what is just passing through my life and I know what’s most important.

I’m so much happier because of this life change.
