About Me

My photo
I am a 29 year old teacher of fourth grade. My husband and I began TTC in March of 2008. We conceived our first month, but unfortunately it only ended in an early miscarriage. 8 months later we finally conceived again, and she was our take-home baby! Norah Jane was born on July 16, 2009. 7lbs 0oz 19" long and amazing. We recently had our sweet baby boy, Miles! He was born on June 12, 2013 at 3:37pm, weighing in at 8lbs 4oz, 20 inches long, and PERFECT! We are loving every minute of parenthood (even the frustrating minutes!). This blog is an attempt to chronicle the baby steps, foot steps, leaps, bounds, and milestones of this journey.

My heart hurts.  I was reminded today that these are my last baby days.  The last firsts ate happening every day,  and they are happening so quickly.

I'll never experience holding my newborn again.
I'll never experience my baby learning to sit up again.
I'll never see that first smile again.
I'll never hear that first laugh again.
I'll never get the first bath experience again.

These firsts are happening at an alarming rate.  Miles is my last baby.  He will be one tomorrow.  My last first birthday.  :(

I read this blog today about dealing with the last firsts.  It offered great insight. I will definitely be sad about these firsts going away,  but the post encouraged me to look forward to the new season that is quickly approaching.  I am excited about it.  I am looking forward to Miles and Norah's relationship growing. I am looking forward to seeing them both grow into (hopefully) God-honoring people... helping others and putting others first.  I am looking forward to so many firsts that we have still to come.
