The day is quickly approaching!! I really can't believe it! My sweet, sweet little baby boy, Jayden will soon be 1 year old! WOW! How time has just flown by! I still remember getting ready to go to the hospital for my c-section. I was so nervous and scared! (and I knew what to expect because I'd had 2 other c-sections with my other children). But I was still anxious. However, that feeling quickly vanished as I thought about seeing my new baby for the first time. I could hardly wait to hold this child in my arms and kiss those sweet, soft cheeks. I was thrilled when the doctor announced that we had a baby boy!! How wonderful! A new playmate for big brother Ryan and our daughter Kailyn was going to be a wonderful helper for mommy.
I have enjoyed watching JJ grow up and learn new things this past year. He loves to sit and play cars with Ryan (and I can see that there will be a few fights over those little vehicles in the near future) and he adores his older sister, Kailyn. I love watching him look up her, his eyes widen and the smile appears on his face as he leans towards her for a hug. It's the most precious thing to watch.
With Jayden I have my cuddler, too. He just loves to put his head on your shoulder and be cuddled & held. And, believe me, I'm milking that for all it's worth!!! I just love to cuddle with him. And , I know that before long, he won't want to cuddle with me all the time, so I've got to make every moment count now.
We're planning to have a small party - just our family - the 5 of us! How I wish that we lived closer to our families so that they could celebrate this milestone with us as well. But, this is where we are in life right now. I will be sure to take some pictures so that we can remember this wonderful moment.
