Becoming a Mom

Twelve years ago today my life was forever changed. I became a mom for the first time. My beautiful tiny baby boy joined this world 2 weeks early. My Z was born at 2:16am and weighed an unbelievable 5 lbs 12 oz. He was so small and so perfect with his fuzzy blond hair and perfect fingers and toes. I had not known how much I would love this child, but I would soon learn of an amazing love I never knew was out there. My love for this boy is as strong today as it was the day I met him for the first time.

On his twelfth birthday that 5 lb baby is now a 125 lb young man who is almost as tall as me! He is so smart and loves to joke around. It is so amazing to have a conversation with this kid who is wise beyond his years!

So today I am so very grateful for Z making me a moma for the first time. Having him was one of the best things that ever happened in my life. I am so looking forward to watching him grow to be an amazing man!

Happy Birthday Baby!! I love you!
