One year ago tomorrow we discovered we were pregnant. I can remember last year thinking how long the year was going to be as we waited for our first kiddo to make his appearance. Today as I type one handed because my other hand is in his 4 month old mouth, I realize how fast this year went by. I think about the times I spent stressed over having a little one who was going to be depending on me. Living on the couch the last few weeks of pregnancy because my bed was just too uncomfortable. The many, many tears I cried at being so overwhelmed by the newness of someone who only communicated by crying. The joy as his first real smile and watching him learn to hold himself up or jump up and down in his swing. And the million things on my to do list that never quite get crossed off. I've never known this kind of love and life is so beautiful.

Thank you to everyone for all the love and support you gave me either by text message, Facebook or having your photos done. I could not have made it through the year without you. Mat, my little chub and I thank you. Truly.

I'm really looking forward to growing in 2010. As a wife, mother and photographer. I look forward to serving God better and making myself available for what He has in store for my life.

Here's a look back at this past year:

This was the slideshow we played at Cash's baby dedication in November. The lyrics express so perfectly the kind of mommy I want to be.

And Pouf my love. She has been so impatiently patient while I pull my new life back together. She's my girl.

I hope everyone has the happiest of New Years! See you in 2011.
