A year ago

A year ago today I decided to share my blog. I had been writing for some time, but didn't share the site with anyone. I wasn't ready to admit that I had a child that was differently abled, I wasn't ready to hear the "I'm sorrys", and the "I'm praying for you". I just wanted congratulations, and the things that are supposed to come along with a new baby. A year ago today, I shared Alex with the world.



Look how far we have come!
From nothing by mouth to loving potatoes and carrots. From barely being able to lift his head even an inch from the floor to almost crawling.
I love you Alex, the world loves you!!

Did I see a picture of your grandpa in the sidebar? There are so many that I can't find it again, but I thought I did.

You're both amazing, and I'm so glad to have "met" you! Would it be too forward to propose on Addison's behalf? LOL

And see, I think that's part of why I don't want to address the lookie loos--I want to live in my little bubble that my kid isn't any different. And she obviously is. And if I talk about it to complete strangers in the middle of the mall...well, I'd be a crying mess. Because even though I love her to pieces, it still tears me up.
