I’m looking forward to Christmas time with you this year. It’s my favorite time of year! I can’t wait to see the glimmer in your eyes when you open your presents, but I also want you to grow up and learn the true meaning of Christmas. It truly is a joyous time of year! You love to pray to Jesus. It’s the sweetest thing. When we eat dinner you grab for Daddy and my hands and we pray. Before bed you put your hands together and we say your prayers as well….melt.my.heart.
You are definitely ALL BOY! You’re usually covered in food, dirt, or wet from getting into the shower. It definitely keeps Daddy and I on our toes! You are obsessed with Elmo right now and it’s usually the first thing you want to do when you wake up in the morning. I think I can sing most of the songs on “Elmo’s World” now….that is something I never thought I would say! Ha ha!
We love you. You are our joy. Our heart. And right now that is all we need. We don’t plan on having any more children….and that is a whole other topic within itself. So, if anyone asks….NO we aren’t. Yes, we realize Connor will probably be a bit spoiled, but this is the life we have chosen. We are happy, content, and blessed.
I honestly never thought I would be able to have a child. And my heart is still aching for the loved ones in my life longing for this journey. Once you find contentment in your path in life….it happens. Crazy how things work out. I was content with it just being Terence and I. Once I found inner peace, we had Connor. It was and is the greatest blessing I’ve ever experienced in my life.
Life is short, time passes so quickly…..
I find myself reading blogs now and it seems like everyone I was pregnant with at the same time I was with Connor is now pregnant with #2. I am SO happy for you all! Please don’t judge me for my decision to not have more…..we do have our reasons.
I do think….”Well, what would it be like to have a girl?” or “Will Connor be lonely?”
Those are just thoughts. And it’s not something that has to happen or will happen…they are just thoughts.
