Celebrating One Year
Today, my son TJ turns one!
In the last year, it’s become very evident that he makes our family complete.
During this time I gave away pregnancy tests and maternity clothes I no longer needed. I sold baby clothes, a boppy, and a jumperoo without blinking an eye.
I looked at pregnant ladies and didn’t feel envy or sadness or anger – I felt relief. Relief that it wasn’t me who was suffering and worrying. After so many years I finally feel like I have made it over the hill to the other side.
Maybe under different circumstances we would have wanted more kids. Maybe if we hadn’t had losses we would have. But we have 2 amazing boys who love dance parties and group hugs and are generally willing to put up with our complete nerdiness (and shenanigans, as evidenced by the pants on TJ’s head) and I am very grateful for that.
Happy birthday Goosey Goose! We love you buddy.
