2 Years Ago

We saw this face for the very first time.

2 years ago. So many of you have been with us since then. Can you believe it’s been 2 years?

I wrote this then.

I’m not even sure what to say about that. I think I’ve said enough what he means to me. I think I’ve expressed that my life would not have been complete without him. That his entire spirit gives off light and love. That he. is. amazing.

Tonight I was giving the kids showers. Dailah and Trysten went first then were sent to clean up. Tariku and I got some time when I was drying him off, lotioning, clipping nails, etc to just talk. Sadly, that doesn’t happen very often. It made me feel awful.

Because I remember the promises I made to his picture 2 years ago. And I haven’t been great at a few of those. This boy strives to be worth my love every day (clearly not yet realizing he could do nothing to lose it), he deserves more one on one time to get to know me and vice versa.

So that’s going to be my referralversary present to him.

2 years ago. I CANNOT believe it’s been that long that I have loved this boy. I CANNOT believe the intensity of my love for him in such a relatively short amount of time. I CANNOT imagine what it will be like 2 years from now.

What an amazing blessing he is.

  1. WOW!! I can NOT believe it, either. I actually stumbled upon your blog right around that time, and it's hard to believe I've been reading and checking in for two years! Congratulations on your referralversary!! He's just as freakin' adorable now as he was two years ago. Maybe even more so!

  2. I remember! Seems like a different world, doesn't it? Hard to predict feeling this way now, all our worlds opening up, when back then all we cared about was paperwork. Amazing, to put it mildly.

  3. Yes, the one on one time, it's sometimes hard. We have finally figured it out and it's SO much better having the time with all the kids individually. Between naps and bedtime we've got into a groove. He's so beautiful and I feel honored having had the opportunity to meet him and hold him in my arms. He is special indeed!

I LOVE hearing from you!
