I wasn't sure I wanted children. I had a nephew that I loved like my own and spoiled relentlessly.
I was happy, and selfish, and carefree, and still young.
Chris and I decided on the 4th of July 2007 - to stop trying to NOT have a child. It was a split - second decision.
It was a hard summer. My sister and nephew lost a husband and father. I lost a baby.
I found out I was pregnant again in April 2008.
I had Grayson 1 year ago - 2 weeks early. He is so perfect.
I wonder now why I waited so long for him. I didn't know how much he would change me.
Grayson, you are the best thing that has ever happened. I anticipate what every day with you will bring. It's such a blessing to be your mother. I know these days are so fleeting, with the past year gone in the blink of an eye. I can only hope to do my best to slow down the seconds to enjoy them with you.
