this woman's work

song of the day: 'this woman's work' by kate bush
well, today is milestone number two. six years ago, my life totally changed. at 4:37 am, a precious little boy entered our lives and completed our family. i was exhausted and depleted. everything was very surreal. and i couldn't take my eyes off of him. it's kind of a strange reality to hold on to a person that you and your husband created. a tiny, helpless baby that is 100% reliant on you. i won't lie, it was pretty hard in the beginning. but i can't imagine my world without him in it.
oh, and i got my hair cut yesterday. short and sassy. not unlike myself.
happy birthday, isaiah :)

This post warms my heart. Like so much that little bits of boiling heart water will fall out of my eyes any second.
