2 Years

And just like that, we have a two year old.

The time has flown and the time has crawled. I can believe it; I can’t believe it.

Yet here we are.

I worried before getting pregnant that I wouldn’t actually enjoy having a kid. I worried while pregnant that I wasn’t the kid type. I worried two months post partum if I’d made a serious mistake because newborns were so, so hard.

And then things started getting easier. Sleep came and stayed. Giggles became full-bellied laughter. Crawling became toddling became chasing around the house.

I love being a mother. I love it so so much. It has been so far beyond any and all of my expectations it’s difficult to even put into words.

But I still try.

Today we’re going to a pumpkin patch and then later it’ll be time for cupcakes. Her birthday was actually earlier in the week, but with two working moms, well.

Happy birthday, Lady Jr.

    Happy birthday, Lady Jr.!!! I’ve loved following along as we walked parallel paths. It seems surreal that we are the same people who started out panicking about never being able to sleep again, and now we have KIDS. Wild ride.

    • I haven’t been around WordPress as much as I’d like, but I try to catch as many of your posts as possible still b/c it’s amazing how close Avery & Lady Jr still are.
      It IS crazy to think how quickly we get used to sleeping, though!

  2. Happy birthday to Lady Jr. and to her moms! Birthdays seem to bring up so many emotions and a lot of reflection for me. I hope this month is filled with many good things for your family!
