Yesterday was my first Mother’s Day…that I knew about. One year ago today we found out about our sweet little Cupcake.
May 15th will always be a special day for our family.
We bought a house in 2015.
We became godparents in 2016.
We actually became godparents on the same day we realized we were parents. That is so special.
Looking at that picture above was what made me take a pregnancy test, actually. Was I just bloated, or could it possibly be…?
I posted this picture on social media as a “one year later” happy homeowner pic. Truthfully, this is the first photo of us as parents. After that first positive pregnancy test. After going to the store to get another one to make sure it wasn’t a fluke.
I wish we could find out about our babies the moment they’re conceived, but we are not that advanced yet. To find out the real exact moment we become parents. Those lines on a home pregnancy test (or 3) will have to do.
From the moment the strip turned pink I was a different person. A mother.
I was carrying my child. My parents’ and in-laws’ grandchild. My siblings’ & siblings-in-laws’ niece. My friends’ godchild. So loved by everyone well before she came out of my body.
Not a ‘potential’; no longer just a hope & prayer. A real, living human being. 46 chromosomes. Irreplaceable & unrepeatable.
Today, I’ve been a mom for a whole year.
