One Years Old!

Today Amelia turns one years old! I cannot believe it’s already been one year with these chubby cheeks. This past year has been a crazy one trying to navigate motherhood. If there’s one way to describe this year it’d be: sleep deprivation! Since day one she’s been keeping us up or waking up at the butt crack of dawn. The most interesting parts right now is watching her try new foods and trying to walk. If we let her, she’d eat anything we’re eating. She loves guacamole, peach puffs, peach anything, yogurt, Mac n cheese, and spaghetti. It’s never a dull day now with this tiny human in the picture, that’s for sure!

I still remember the moment I found out I was pregnant. My dad had just died and I was trying to figure out how to live in a world without my dad (tbh, still trying to figure that one out) and all of the sudden my life gets turned around. Telling Bret, his family, my family, and our friends was a whirlwind of emotions. Not to mention studying and taking the bar exam at 9 months pregnant. During pregnancy I always felt like she’d never get here. Now that she’s here, it’s hard to believe she’s only been in my life for one year and not the past 26. She’s brought so much joy into such a dark time in my life. One thing I’ve thought about is what life would be like if we didn’t have Amelia. But no matter what fake life I come up with I always end with thinking I’d never give up this life with her in a million years. I’m so happy I get to be her mom. I am so thankful God blessed me with her because she’s changed me in so many ways.

I love you, my little boo baby!
