one year later

A year ago today, two lines showed up on the stick and our lives changed forever. A long but mostly easy pregnancy followed, and then a blessedly healthy baby. Three months and three weeks after giving birth, I find that motherhood -- while not always easy -- suits me. I feel a bit like I was made for this job, and I'm so incredibly stupidly immensely grateful that I get to be mother to this amazing baby boy. To the Universe I say thank you, thank you, thank you.

  1. I feel the same way. I 'did' jobs but never fit into them all that well (although I'm hopeful about the library tech thing -- I can always lurk behind shelves when I'm feeling odd, right?). Motherhood is so theatre of the absurd a lot of the time that even when it's hard, it's like it was made for me. And my kids are really weird, so that helps. :)

  2. congratulations, again. he is a lovely little man. :)

  3. That feeling of being a good Mom is what makes you eventually want to have another child. Also, how cute your kid is makes you want to have another one!
