3 Months

Conrad in his Hooters shirt from auntie Julie.

I can't believe it's already been 3 months. It seems like just yesterday that I was jumping up and down reading a positive pregnancy test, laughing and crying knowing that this new life had began renting out a home for himself in my womb, and I would be eternally attached to him. I was barfing up everything I ate & all for you! I hated pregnancy, but the truth is, I'd do it all over again because when my son smiles at me, and snuggles into my chest, I feel like I've won the lottery. No one told me that being a mother was as awesome as it is.

I don't know how I got through the first week. We were just talking about how hard it was as new parents to learn how to function on no sleep, and trying to learn all of Conrad's many cries. It seems like it was just a dream. If people hadn't made us meals, I truly don't think we would have eaten.

To celebrate that you're a quarter of the way through your first year Conrad Franklin, your Dad wrote a message on our chalk board wall to remind us. And it blows my mind. I can't believe you're so big. You big boy you! You slobbering fool! You are loved little little love, you are cherished deeply. I don't even remember or know what life was like before you entered the picture. I know it's a whole lot better now. You make our life better.
