Happy Birthday, Christmas Baby!
by JAK’s guest mom blogger from Sturtevant, Sheri Gavin

I love being a mom.

One year has gone by. Not sure where the time has gone. I know that this is a common theme for all moms out there. I never knew how true that statement could be until I became a mom one year ago. I can’t believe she is already one. Over the last year I have learned I could love someone more than I could have ever dreamed. Read More…

Over the last few weeks, the first moments of my little girls’ life has played in my mind like a movie. The emotions I am feeling are just as fresh as they were one year ago. I find myself in a weepy mess a lot of the time. The day of her birthday was especially hard and wonderful at the same time. The moment she was born played like it truly was yesterday. I remember how excited and scared I was to bring her home.

Welcome, Christmas Baby!

Going back to work after maternity leave was so difficult. I wish I could have put her in my pocket and bring her along with me. I was so afraid I would miss everything, I haven’t. I am not saying I have been there for every first, but when I see it for the first time, it is the first time for the both of us together.

Every milestone that we have accomplished feels like winning the lottery, such as; sitting up, standing, crawling, stacking her ring toys and saying her first word (even if it wasn’t Mama). No, she is not walking yet, but I feel like I don’t want to push to make her walk.  This way, I can hang onto the baby just a bit longer because she will be walking any minute and then she will be a toddler.

Every day there is a new discovery. I love seeing things through her eyes, the things in our life that we over look everyday are fascinating to a 1 year old. I have learned to look at things with a new perspective.

Christmas Baby is 1!

I truly love being a mom – I was born to be a mom – I was born to be this amazing little girl’s mom.
