it will all be wonderful.
today my first born has completed an entire rotation around the sun and truth be told, my hormonal pregnant butt is feeling pretty emo about the whole thing.
from the moment he was born hunter has been anything but normal. i guess considering who his parents are, we should have expected as much.
he arrived five weeks early, totally backwards, and just one day shy of both of his grandfathers’ birthdays.
four days later my 4.5lb guy attended his own baby shower.
at just four months old hunter battled ferocious chicken pox.
the morning he turned ten months old this kid was wildly chasing snoop dogg throughout the house.
he taught himself to whistle.
he plays harmonica.
he never sleeps.
he never cries.
hunter hagop is the happiest, sweetest, wildest, most stubborn and determined boy i have ever met. i am honored to call this blonde haired blue eyed beast my son.
today is the first of many milestones hunter will reach in his lifetime. he is no longer my tiny infant and in just a few months he will longer be the baby.
i am so proud of the person i am watching him become.
but it is all moving too fast.
at the end of the summer my heart and my arms will need to find room for a second tiny person.
at sixteen months old hunter will need to be more independent. he will have to learn to share his mama.
and although there are about five million thoughts about the semantics of raising two babies under a year and a half racing through my mind at any given moment of every day, deep down i know it will all be wonderful.
just like i learned to do one year ago today, i will once again loosen up and let the tide move me. being a mama to hunter has taught me that i have very little control and not only is that perfectly ok, but it is beyond beautiful.
happy birthday hunter hagop. thank you for making me a mama and for making every day the greatest adventure of my life.
