And then he was 1...

There are so many things going through my head right now about this last year. So many things I didn't know when Logan was born and so many things I sure wish I had known.

I didn't know:

I could function survive on so little sleep
I could love something with all my heart and soul
How much he would increase my love for Lee
That I would end up with night vision
I would sleep for nearly 3 months on the sofa or the guest bed
I would cry so much, sometimes while he cried too
How very little I knew about how to keep him alive
That when he would smile I forget all the things making me sad
That I would ever in a million years need antidepressents
That I would fail at breastfeeding
That his laugh would make me laugh too
I would never sleep past 6:30 again

I wish I had known:

That it really does fly by, that people don't just say that
How great it would be after the dark days
To hold him all I could because he won't want to be held forever
How crazy I would be about shopping for baby clothes/toys/books/anything baby related
That all the little things don't matter whatsoever

Logan is everything we could ever have wished for. He is funny, silly, loving, playful, and curious.

Logan - we love you so so much and we are so proud of you!

*His check up is on Thursday so I will have stats and milestones for you then!*

And I had no idea how being a grandmother would make me feel! I have to be careful to not act like I am the only one in the world, but sometimes, I can't help it!
