This post is a couple of weeks late but better late than never right?
My delicious, gorgeous, spunk of a son turned one recently and it got me thinking about the year that was and how grateful I am for everything in my life.
This past year has been a rollercoaster. I had a baby, sold my business, moved out of my house and am in the process of moving again.
Before Costa was born I was running a hair salon full time, working 10 – 12 hour days, going to the gym 3 times a week, and I thought I was busy! HA!
BUSY is what I am now. EVERY.SINGLE.DAY.
but I wouldn’t change it for the world.
Now my days consist of Costa. Feeding him, changing him, playing with him, putting him to sleep, and it goes on and on and on.
This past year of motherhood has taught me so many things but the most important thing I have learnt is that nothing else is really as important as my son and the love I have for him is indescribable.
My heart melts every time I see him and when he smiles at me, I go weak at the knees.
This kid has me wrapped around his little finger but that’s okay.
Time flies when you’re having fun and this year really has flown.
I remember bringing him home from the hospital and having no freaking idea what to do with him.
I remember the sleepless nights when we were all adjusting to baby making 3 and the endless hours just laying with him because he liked to be close to me.
Now, my cheeky little monkey is on the go 24/7. He wants to explore everything, he is animated in how he tries to talk to us (he really, really wants to talk and it’s so cute watching him try), he loves us reading him a book and loves to play with the ball.
At night, he still likes to be close to us and generally ends up in bed with me.
One day, Costa will be too big to want to sleep in mama’s bed so it’s all good now. We’re bonding and I think it’s beautiful.
I’m looking forward to watching Costa grow up, to see what he looks like, what his likes and dislikes are, what his voice sounds like when he starts putting sentences together, but for now I am going to try and stop and savour the moments a bit more because the time just goes so fast!
My first year of motherhood has been amazing and it’s the best job I’ve ever had the pleasure of having, so with that I say Happy Birthday Costa. Thanks for choosing us to be your parents and thanks so much for making me a mama! Love you always and forever.
