happy birthday!


Jonas was born one year ago... right now. phew. What a year it's been. It's all been great - but I wouldn't go back. Not to say I wouldn't do it again. I just love having a little boy who can do things - and interact - and turn on the tv only to be scared by static, and then after crying for a while go back to try it again. I really love being his mom. I love getting to know him and seeing such a little person grow out of a tiny baby. I even love all the mischevious and maddening things that he does. His stubbornness is endearing. Reminds me of me I guess. Even though he sometimes makes me crazy, I love him. I love him even more for making me crazy in a strange way. It's amazing that he's here because we decided to have a baby. How amazing that our decisions can create a life. And now we're doing it all over again. I'm so grateful and excited. How awesome to get the chance to be a mom. Thanks Jonas. Love you cutie.

Hoorah for babies and parents who decide to have them (that may sound kinda weird, but its true in our society so I'm going to say it).
