Twooooooo | I’m changed and still the same

 

“TWOOOO!”

This is Levi practicing “two”. He’s still getting the hang of it, but I’m really liking his current interpretation.

I can’t belive my little baby is turning two on Sunday.

That has been a fast two years. FAST. And yet it feels long too.

So much has changed.

I’ve changed, mostly.

Having kids changes you like nothing else.

And yet I’m still me. I’m still the same person I always have been.

Just different.

I wish I knew hw to describe that better to freinds who’ve not yet had kids. I know they want to understnad. But they can’t. Well, not completely at least.

So this birthday marks two years of motherhood for me.

But really it’s not about me.

It’s about my precious little peanut that’s invaded my heart.

He is so funny, so clever, so gorgous, and so adorable… i can hardly stand it.

I love this age. Yes there are tantrums and shananagans, but there is so much personality, hilarity, adn wonder and curiosity. I love that Levi causes me to see life differently.

I’m so thankful for my first-born.

But can’t believe I only have  a one-year-old for a few more days.

*sigh*

Mah Baaaaybeeee!

STOP.

 

Q for you: Do you have kids? Do you get what I mean when I say they change you and yet you’re still the same?

 

Love,
A

    Oh my… the monster’s birthday is Saturday… I just can’t believe it either.

    I absolutely agree with how it changes you. I hated that when we couldn’t get pregnant moms would tell me “you can’t really understand” though. It is true, but it is also painful to accept when you want nothing more than a child of your own…
