I can't believe it has been 5 years today!!!
5 years of this motherhood journey!
5 years of ups & downs...
5 years of sleepless nights, of pain and tears...
5 years of major milestones, watching you grow, shifting from a tiny baby to a handsome young boy...
5 years learning all about YOU, how special, unique and awesome YOU are!!
5 years since my eldest, my pride and joy, my little man, the boy who stole my Heart is turning 5!!
We wanted to live out lives..to travel, go out, stay up late, sleep late, mingle and socialize..we wanted to have fun and enjoy ourselves!!
The more we were having FUN, the longer we postponed entering parenthood!!
Unfortunately, when we decided WE are READY..the universe had a different PLAN for US!!
1 year of guilt, of sorrow, of regrets, or failed attempts, of unforeseen incidents before we finally learned that GOD is sending us a tiny Miracle!!
It was such a relief, such a blessing, such an amazing feeling to know we will finally be blessed with our Miracle baby!
Counting down for our BIG day took forever!! Moreover, my stubborn child decided to take his entire time to arrive!
To the very last day of my pregnancy....May 5 was our chosen day!
Everything went smooth, (yes I took the Epidural..) any everything else went by normally! 4:19 pm my angel arrived (I was hoping to push it til 5:00 pm but my DR and staff got tired waiting for me!!)
And the very 1st second i saw him our eyes locked! As if he knew right away were to look, what a feeling!! the Goosebumps, and the breakdown after it! So intense, so emotional, so speechless!
There were lots of days in which I doubted myself and the decision I took! But watching him grow, being there for him every single minute, having this special BOND with him made me forget all the what ifs and be so grateful and content to what I HAVE!
What a Journey!
No matter how much You read or ask around, or even tried to apply your own parent's parenting style...it's not as living the experience with your own children!
Each child is unique, special and different in their own way! Loving them and trying as much as we can to be the best parents for them is all what they need!
You will never get it right, but then in parenthood there's NO right or wrong way! You follow your instincts, YOU try to do what YOU believe in! And in the end you step back and you admire the amazing miracle YOU have brought to this world, nurture it, and helped it blossom and grow!
Then you Pat yourself on your shoulder, smile with pride, and continue your lovely journey with your amazing blessings!
Happy 5th Birthday my little man with the most beautiful soul & an amazing character!!
Love YOU endlessly
