Four Months Old

It was a year ago I found out I was pregnant. I was completely shocked. I was still nursing and had not had a period since summer of 2002.

It was a year ago that I cried at the thought of having another baby.

And now a year has passed and I have you.

And I can't imagine life without you. I want to tell you that I am sorry. Sorry for feeling, for even a moment, that you were not as wanted as the others were before you.

Now that you are here with me you are a total joy.
You are the salve for the wounds I have endured the past few years.
You are what was missing, though I had no way of knowing that a year ago.
You are a sense of peace that things work out the way they are supposed to.
You give me hope that I am a good enough mother to have been rewarded with you.
You make everyone in this family smile and bring happiness to our hearts.

You complete us.

Ahhhh! So beautiful!!

I feel the same way about my 4th. She completes me, too. I look at her and she affirms that all the pain and sorrow happened for a purpose!

Thank you.

I can't believe how you totally summed up how I feel/felt about our #3. She is our glue, our exclamation point, and forever will be the "baby"
