This Time Last Year

…J was 38 weeks pregnant and we were anxiously awaiting Jaxson’s arrival and thinking we still had a little over two weeks left to prepare for his big debut.

A year later, these two moms can’t believe their little man is turning a year old in ONE week. Ahhhh! It seems like the past year has flown by and trudged along all at the same time. The status quo changed to include poopy diapers and baby toys strewn around the house, and if we think about it really hard we can almost remember what it was like before he was here.

It’s amazing to look back at the last year and remember that its only been a year and he’s grown so much (and so have we). And sometimes its overwhelming to look at the present with its struggles with teething woes, naptime fights, and tantrums. There are those wonderful moments too, such as receiving wholehearted snuggles, smiley good mornings, and watching Jaxson find joy in the simplest things like the wind blowing through tree leaves.

It all balances out in the end: the bad moments make the good ones look really good, and the good moments make the bad ones not so bad. But really, I’m just impressed that we’ve almost made it to a year with all three of us still sane.  Well, mostly sane. 😉
