One

How can a year possibily have passed by so quickly? How is it this little life has gone from sleepy and quiet to noisy and mad-dash? I nursed him this morning for the last time. And now I'm going to cry about it. 8 weeks ago I was more than ready to give it up but persevered 'til today. But we're done. I  miss it already.


Cruz, I love you for the smiles. I love you for the tears. I love you for the way you've changed my life. I love you for making me rely on God for the strength to parent you. I love you for your giggles. I love you for your strength. I love you for your weaknesses. I love you for your snuggles. I love you for the pain you've brought. I love you for the joy you are. I love you for the trials. I love you for the patience. I love you for you are mine. I love you for you are God's. I love you for you are a gift!
