This year was very different. Every day, since Ty, has been a dream come true...truly...that my big day really paled in comparision. He's like 100 birthdays every day. I woke up, yesterday, with so much gratitude in my heart for Rebekah. She gave me the best gift I could ever receive. At least once a day, Ben will look at me and say, "Can you believe someone gave us their baby?" It's surreal...even after 2 months. I'm not sure it will ever sink in (I hope it never does).
Rebekah has changed my life forever with this sweet, sweet baby boy.
His presence in our life forces us to be better. Better people, better parents. He has given our lives so much purpose...I can't even formulate the fullness. My little Ty-Guy was so sweet yesterday, it was as if he knew it was my birthday. He slept 7 hours, ate and went right back to bed - giving me the opportunity for a long hot shower and lots of "get ready" time, took good naps, snuggled, and never made a peep!
It was such a perfect, lazy day! Meeghan and the kids brought lunch and we had a picnic on the porch. Later we snuck out for dinner and a movie.
