A year ago I found out that I was pregnant with our son. It was the first Mother’s Day before having our son born. I kept thinking about what it’s going to be like to hold our child and love them unconditionally. I also announced on social media that we were expecting a child and our first one in November. Below are three photos of how we announced that we were pregnant. I used a chalkboard to write a sweet message which I found on Pinterest.
This year I celebrated my first Mother’s Day with our son here. It was special for me because I got to spend the whole day with my son. I ask reflected on the past 6 months with our son here with us. It has been challenging being a full time working mom but it has been easy because our parents are helping us. My mom watches my son while I work 3 blocks away. I am able to come to her house and feed our son. I get to see him and that’s all that matters to me. I have also sacrificed a lot for our son: sleep, spending every waking hour with him and being a full time mom. There are so many challenges and sacrifices but they are worth it because I am doing all that I can for our son. I love our son and will do anything to make him grow into a wonderful young man. The past 6 months I have learned to love unconditionally. My love for our son keeps growing every day. I am also learning to see things in a new light. I’m experiencing things for the first time with our son. These moments are magical and exciting. I am always looking for new things to experience with our son. He is teaching me to be more patient. Things happen when they happen and we just need to be patient and wait for the events to occur when they do. The past 6 months have been amazing and full of various adventures and I look forward to a lifetime of adventures with our son. I hope you all had a wonderful Mother’s Day with your special love.
