Frankly, after The Negotiator I hoped we were done. I was satisfied with the number of kids I had and tired of having baby after baby. I didn't want another one. I reflect back on those thoughts and look into the smiling face of my Boo and try to imagine life without him. I am thankful that God trumped me because without him I wouldn't have beautiful green eyes shining back and me, nor would I have his comedy at every turn, especially when I need it, nor would I have him cuddling up to me whenever I sit or lay down. I'm so glad God is in charge because I would've missed out on a lot!
Littlest One was and is my true baby. Because I was pregnant or nursing continuously for over 4 years, he is the one that the fog cleared and I actually got to enjoy him--to enjoy having a baby. Before him, I was just going through motions. He is the one I nursed longest and really didn't want to stop because I loved his little body curved into mine. He is the one that I got to really relish in each milestone with. He has been a blessing and I am so glad I didn't have to miss out!
Happy Birthday, Littlest One!
