One year ago today I was at the hospital having Rajko. My water had broken the night before, but I was in denial. I had a plan - and that plan consisted of having my baby on Friday, March 13th. As spoiled inside the womb as he is now, my Rajko decided he was coming on his own watch, and he was born on his due date: March 10, 2009.
I can't believe what a life-changing experience it is to have a child. I never imagined the intense love you can a mom can have for her child, or how protective I could ever feel about another person. Being a mom has brought me to understand so much more about love and patience, and really what I can really do when there's no other option - like operating on no sleep or doing a static arm curl with a 18 lb weight for 1 solid hr just to avoid waking a sleeping baby.
I can't believe my baby is ONE! So many fun things have happened in the past year, and we know there are so many more adventures ahead. We couldn't have hand-picked a better, sweeter, more laid-back, beautiful baby than we have. We love him so much and are so lucky to be his parents.
Happy Birthday, big boy!
