Yes, this post is a little late. It's because I'm a mom and mommies are busy people:)
This was my first M Day as a mommy, and it was so special. I actually had to work in the morning, but I got to spend my afternoon napping and hanging out with my sweet little boy. Even though Hayes and Ryan got me some pretty sweet gifts, I wanted to tell everyone about the best Mother's Day gift ever...the gift of being a mommy.
Ryan and I have learned first hand how precious the gift of life is. It is a miracle that a couple can get pregnant, stay pregnant, and give birth to a healthy child. So many people take this miracle for granted. The number of couples that experience fertility problems and miscarriage is unbelieveable. Becoming a parent can be the most frustrating, challenging, and often heartbreaking thing a couple can go through. Being a parent has been the most amazing...and exhausting experience I have ever had. Our personal journey to becoming parents made the experience so much more special for us. The day I gave birth to Hayes was so surreal and amazing. It was certainly a day we will never forget.
