Five Months

WE HAVE BEEN A FAMILY OF THREE FOR FIVE MONTHS NOW.

Thatcher is learning and experiencing new things about life everyday, and so am I. Sacrifice is still very prominent as we figure out this thing called parenthood. I still rejoice every smile and milestone and crumble inside a little at every cry or hardship. Being a family means feeling every joy and every blow that each other feels, so deeply it seems it is happening to us all. 

My son is my ray of light and my husband is my rock. They provide so much laughter and love everyday. Sometimes the darkness creeps back in and I fight it alone until I am reminded of my blessings. The constant reassurance my husband gives freely and with patience. The endless laughter from my son who has permanently introduced me to a lighter side of life and myself. They make me feel good enough.
