The day has come...
The day I have been dreading for a year.
My baby boy is a year old.
How can this be? I look at him and I still see a baby. I look at him and still see the perfect little boy that I gave birth to what seems like yesterday. From this day forward, I will no longer have a baby of my own in my life. And that has my heart breaking.
Buuuuutttt....I am ready for easier days. I am ready for conversations with my boys. I am ready to live the rest of my life without diapers. I am ready to watch my boys be best friends
We spent our day at the Cincinnati Museum Center. One of our favorite places to go. Poor Jackson didn't get to go with us this time....dang school
About 13 months ago...when Landon turned one, I made his first birthday cake. A sugar free, organic banana cake. Because I decided that I wanted to start his eating habits right. I wanted him to have all of the best foods and as little junk as possible. And now....Landon eats fruits and veggies over anything else. Not saying that he doesn't ask for chocolate and not saying that I don't give it to him. But why give him chicken nuggets and french fries when peas and carrots taste sooo much better?
This year...I had zero energy to bake Calvin his cake. By the time the dreaded day came, I was too drained to do it. And trust me. I have plenty of guilt to go with my laziness. But I figured...he doesn't really eat food anyway so I seriously doubted he would eat a whole lot of that cake. I did however get him an angel food cake that isn't as bad a vanilla or chocolate cake loaded with sugar and icing. And I was right. He ate 2 bites and he was done :)
I lasted with Jackson for 6 weeks
Calvin....12 months and counting!
By far my greatest accomplishment ...It's been/IS exhausting but my baby has had zero formula. BUT I never imagined I would STILL be exclusively breastfeeding. But he WILL NOT EAT FOOD! A couple bites here and there...surely not enough to fill his belly.
But I also know that the time will come...the time when he will only nurse at night...and then none at all. And I will once again be heartbroken
Happy Birthday my sweet boy...Mommy loves you to the moon and back.
You will ALWAYS be my baby boy
I'm a mom and a wife who loves to play with a camera...how can life be any better?
