exactly a week ago our sweet little Holden entered the world & changed our lives forever. our family & our hearts grew in leaps in bounds. if i am honest i was so nervous about this change in our family. i was a little afraid of the unknown- how would i juggle a newborn & a 2.5 year old? how would shane adjust to being a big brother? would sleepless nights haunt me for the next 6 months?
but something changed & every worry about the future that i had melted away the second i held my brand new little boy in my arms. “he is healthy! he is alive! he is beautiful!” this is what went through my mind when i saw the miracle i had been carrying inside of me for the last 9 months. & everyday i remind myself through the sleepless nights & the feelings of being overwhelmed that i can do this- God made me for this & it is one of the most beautiful things i have ever experienced here on this earth bringing a baby into this world.
i am so thankful to have a healthy baby boy & i really am trying my best to enjoy every single day/moment i have with my sons while they are this little. the time passes too quickly & there is so much beauty in this present moment so that i where i will live.
we are in love with this brand new little life. God is good.
