Ten Years Ago Today

It's a strange feeling knowing the exact day your baby will be born. Through the magic of pitocin, this sweet little baby looked into my eyes and completely changed my life.

Today he starts his day with breakfast in mommy and daddy's bed as he watches TV.
He looks forward to the day ahead full of sugary treats and surprises.

Meanwhile, I reflect on the last ten years. I reflect on the firsts. First birthday. First step. First time he held his littlest brother.

I reflect on the ones that won't see him grow up.

I reflect on how he's changed my world. How he makes me want to be a better person. I look forward to seeing him become the young man he's turning into.

Happy Birthday, my first boy!
