Birthday- looking back on a whole year

Well, it's my birthday tomorrow and I am just filled with the overwhelming urge to write down all of the things I am thankful for.

Last year I wrote in my journal on my birthday with the thought and hope that I was pregnannt. I had taken a test and it and came out with a really light blue line. I was so hopeful and excited. Being pregnant was the goal and we had been trying for months to see that little blue line.... I wanted a baby so bad and Carl and I had just felt so ready to be parnets.

Last year's birthday was filled with possibility. Carl and I went out for dinner and since I wansn't 100% certain, I decided to wait to tell him about my possible pregnancy... so there we sat, eating dinner, and I held in the biggest secret ever. Well, you know how it turned out.. I WAS pregnant. It was the best birthday present ever... I actually took the test and found out about little Miles last year on my actual birthday. Fast forward a year and here I sit, typing this up while my perfect son is sleeping in my lap.

LOL... It is funny to look back and see how much has changed in my 25th year. I spent so much time trying to get used to my ever changing pregnant body and just as I would get used to it, another thing would happen and everything would change... then Miles came and it all changed again. My body is my own again and sadly, I miss my little belly partner... but I am very glad to see my son's sweet smile and hear his addicting laugh.

My birthday is tomorrow and I can't believe how much has changed in just one year. My whole life has more meaning and value than before. I can't wait to see what my 26th year has to offer, because so far my 25th year was the most amazing year of my life.
