We’re officially in the home stretch now as Camden turns one in just a few short weeks. Everyone says that once you have kids, time flies by. I guess I just couldn’t believe it. But in all honesty, I feel like it’s been nothing but a blur. You blink and you miss it. It seems just yesterday that I was counting the minutes between contractions. And now, he’s not only here, but he’s a beautiful, healthy, almost walking, kind of talking, perfect little boy. And I can’t remember what life was like before him nor can I imagine what our lives would be like without him. I tell him every single day how lucky we are to have him in our lives. Because we are. And I know this year hasn’t been easy. It’s tough raising a baby when all you know is raising dogs. The ear infections, the viruses, the upcoming eye surgery…there is nothing to prepare you for that. But the love you have for them gets you through. That and the smiles and the “uh-ohs” and the “go-gos”. And this face. This face is what has made this all worthwhile.And that’s what helps me get through these last few weeks of Camden as a true baby.
Thank you for sitting through each of these monthly blog posts….allowing me to share my sweet little Camden here. To show him grow and change and turn into the amazingly adorably perfect little boy that he’s become.
