Our beautiful little Chunks turned one a week ago, and I’m still trying to wrap my head around the fact that we have had her in our lives for one whole year.
It only feels like yesterday that I was in labour, feeling the pain of each contraction, but knowing that with that, we were one step closer to finally holding Chunks in our arms. My memories from the birth will always somewhat haunt me, but nothing will ever take away from that moment when she came into the world, and was placed in my arms for the first time.
Having Chunks has changed my life forever. This year has been full of lessons, challenges and so many joys. Some days I have felt on top of the world, whilst on others I would slump into bed feeling like a complete failure. But seeing that little face, full of excitement and happiness look up at me each morning, I wouldn’t have it any other way. I have found out things about myself I would have never known had I not become a mother, and I’m so glad to be worthy of that title.
Here’s to a one whole perfect, complete year with our little Chunks, and here’s to many, many more.
