One year ago today I woke up 41 weeks pregnant with no idea how later that night, my life would forever change. I had no idea my heart would soon love at a depth I didn't know existed. I had no idea I was about to endure the most physically and emotionally painful day of my life...yet not remember any of it. I had no idea I could love so hard and so wild, a little human being that I only just met. I had no idea Ford would bring so much joy into our lives and the lives of family, friends, and even strangers. Ford is my most precious creation and one of my greatest joys. I could have never imagined being a mother would bring me to my knees in thanksgiving for a little boy who requires so much of my physical and emotional strength. This past year had been trying, exhausting, and imperfectly perfect. The sleepless nights, c section pain, and newly learned fake crying tantrums will never compare to the incredible fullness I feel as a mother. I still can't believe I was chosen to be Ford's mother. Life is good with this 1 year old boy!
