I cannot believe it is already my baby Knoxy’s birthday month.. I am filled with so many emotions, both happy and sad. Where did the time go? Last year at this time I was living at my in-laws house, squished in one room, waiting for my sweet husband to come home from Arkansas. I remember sitting on the couch, staring at my belly, watching my baby move from side to side. I was in love with those fluttery kicks and turns. Although, I could not wait for him to come into this world and teach me how to love so unconditionally, to learn how to become selfless, and ultimately to become a mother. This past year has been filled with so many of my most dear and precious memories. So many lessons learned. Uncountable smiles. And a bundle of firsts.
A trip down memory lane? Fine, fine 🙂
Oh and lets not forget how many visitors we had that day! The nurses thought we were nuts! (about 100 more people not pictured)

I have loved every second. Each day just gets more and more fun with my little boy. I cannot believe how fast time can fly by without me realizing it. This just makes me want to appreciate every second I have. I am so excited for my baby’s first birthday! Just had to get this mom “WHAT!?!?!” feeling out of my system 🙂 No more sappy posts from me for a while!
