two years

“Through the blur, I wondered if I was alone or if other parents felt the same way I did - that everything involving our children was painful in some way. The emotions, whether they were joy, sorrow, love or pride, were so deep and sharp that in the end they left you raw, exposed and yes, in pain. The human heart was not designed to beat outside the human body and yet, each child represented just that - a parent's heart bared, beating forever outside its chest.”

Zander, last week you completed your second trip around the sun. Two whole years. It's just amazing to watch you grow and for your daddy and I to grow with you, as parents. There are times I find myself still trying to figure out this new life with you and how to make it all work. Sometimes there's chaos. But then you take my hand in yours and lead me out of my world and into your world, where nothing else matters.

I will never forget the day you came into this world and how it changed me forever. Two years doesn't really seem that long, but already, I can't imagine life without you.

Happy Birthday, sweet boy.
