    Default Well, whatdya know?

    We are here again. In 4 short hours my baby will be 1, and I will be breastfeeding 2 beyond 1. I am just astounded at how quickly the year has gone by, and tbh, I'm a wreck. I am just so sad that I can't remember every single minute of it. Of course, he has made me realize that even though he's one, he still needs me. He hasn't left me today at all, without screaming. And has been attached to me for 2 hours, literally.

    He is the sweetest person I've ever met. He has such a tender heart. Waylon is full of smiles to make your day, snuggles to remind you to be careful with others' feelings, and a giggle that will melt even the steeliest heart.

    I am so fortunate to have been blessed with such an attached little mamas boy. I never thought I could love such a being again, this much. And it was and is and has been instant.

    Tomorrow he will get his first haircut. I think this has me the saddest. His mop, that has been his "trademark" will be shortened, and I know it will grow him up instantly. I have loved his hair and how much there was and how long it has become. I just can't imagine how this will change how he appears to me.

    Anyway, thanks for listening. I will post pics of the haircut and party soon, but forgive me if I don't make it here at all tomorrow.

    Congratulations Erin. I know this year has been bittersweet for you. But you lived. And you are home with your two healthy babies. And you have been mothering from your gut. And have really been amazing. Honest, true to yourself and your family. I'm glad you are here. You have always been an inspiring brave mother to watch.
    Happy B-day Waylon!!!!!

    Erin, I was so touched to read your post, I was wondering if you have a scrapbook or the like for Waylon? It was such a beautiful sentiment about your relationship that I thought you may want to record the thoughts for DS and you to look back on some day in the future.

    You're a great Mom with excellent advice, thanks and congrats and happy birthday little man!
