Today is my birthday and I am feeling extra special and nostalgic. It was the night of my birthday last year that Jon and I decided to stop preventing pregnancy and less than a month later, we conceived our little Ford. In the past year I've not only added a year to my age, I've started to fill the role I know the Lord had planned for me my entire life, a mother. It's surreal thinking about life before Ford, or even life before he was in my belly and today I am feeling so blessed that we made that leap of faith to start our family. It was a lot sooner than we had originally planned but the Lord was encouraging us and we listened.
This weekend was exactly what I wanted for my birthday...besides a handful of quick little outings, we snuggled at home, napped, lit pumpkin candles, and stayed in our jammies. Right now Ford and I are still in bed while daddy does some work and later today today we are leaving him for a mommy/daddy date. Motherhood is the best gift I could have ever received this week!
