The day my life changed…FOREVER!

3 May

Five years ago, on this very day, I became a mother. At 4:06am Cameron was born and my life would never be the same.

I’ve watched him grow from a chubby little baby to my big boy who will be off to kindergarden in a matter of months. I was there for his first taste of “real” food. I was there for his first words. I was there, sitting in the family room when he just decided to stand up and RUN across the room to me. I can even tell you what day he took those first steps, it was August 1, 2007.

I’m not a patient woman, but he’s taught me to be just a little more patient. He’s taught me that being a mother is hard work, it’a harder than any job I had ever had before he came into my life, but he’s made it so worth it. The smiles, and laughs and hugs make all the hard times we have to go through worth the effort.

Cameron amazes me everyday with the things he knows and how perceptive he really is. He’s funny. He’s caring. He’s got a personality unlike anything I’ve ever seen before. Sure, he’s headstrong and stubborn. He has an uncanny ability to push my buttons. He has made me more angry than anyone else in my life, but he’s also made me happier than anyone else has.

Cameron has a short fuse and a hot temper just like his mommy. He’s smart just like his daddy. He’s got that giant head that is so characteristic of my side of the family, he looks just like my dad from behind. From the front, he’s a chubby cheeked version of his father. It’s kind of funny though, he doesn’t look like Bill as a kid, he looks like Bill now. Like any little boy he loves anything with wheels and has a million and one questions about the world around him.

I look at the calendar today and I cannot believe five years have passed already. How did this happen? Just yesterday I was holding my baby boy for the first time (hours after his birth), and today he’s a big kid. He can walk. He can talk. He’s potty trained. He can write his own name. He has an unbelievable number of sight words. He’s not my baby full of rolls anymore, he my lean, mean big kid machine. I am having such a hard time wrapping my head around the fact that half a decade has passed in the blink of an eye and I’m sure the next half will fly by even faster.

My Life In Mommyland began five years ago today. Even though the blog didn’t start till a few years later, my life changed forever and for the better the day that little boy came into it. My first born will always have a special place in my heart…And he’ll always be my guinea pig as we stubble through life together.

Happy birthday to my special little boy. I love you always and forever!
