And so it begins

Well.  What a weird and strange trip it has been.  Today was my due date.  Instead of being pregnant though, I'm enjoying life with my ten day old son.

I'm so little on time or really ambition to do it now, but I will try to write his birth story when I can, because it was amazing and special and I know I'll never completely forget it, but as the days go by I am already forgetting details, so I know I should do it soon.

Instead though, I am just eating up every moment with this special little boy.  I have realized that while I was hesitant for so many years to start our family - this is my calling.  This is who I was meant to be.  I look back on where I was last year and I realize that while I was very happy, there was a void, we were kind of just going through the motions of life.  Now I feel complete, whole and happier than I ever thought possible.  Is it all easy?  Heck no.  Is every minute totally blissful?  Nope, especially those trying to stay awake while nursing at 3 am moments.  But overall, I just can't even remember life without him. 

Much more to come soon.
