big baby, turned little boy

Trey is one.
Thinking back to one year ago I was not ready for how much we would love our little boy. Watching him learn and grow has been the most rewarding, wonderful experience of my life and I am so glad I have been able to be there every. single. day. Thinking back to when it was "just the two of us" seems so strange now. People ask me if I every miss just being able to go out and do whatever, whenever we want? I guess maybe we do- are we supposed to? I don't feel like I gave up freedom to have a child, it's more like now, wherever we are, everything becomes a new adventure. It's nice to stop and play with a leaf or watch a train go by. Simply stated- I like it more then being able to "go out". This talk from conference describes perfectly how I feel- I am so grateful to be a mother.
"Motherhood is not a hobby, it is a calling. You do not collect children because you find them cuter than stamps.
 It's not something you do if you can squeeze the time in,
it is what God gave you time for."
Trey we love you so much! Thank-you for being the sunshine in our lives!
