Happy Birthday Baby Boy!...
I wish I had known what a sweet and wonderful blessing Xander was going to be when I found out I was unexpectedly pregnant with him.
I was so freaked out about the details (how were we going to afford another baby) that I was in denial about the pregnancy almost up to the day I gave birth.
I remember very vividly calling one of my best girlfriends crying: "I just realized I'm going to have a baby in 3 weeks! I'm not ready to have another baby!!!"
Her quite logical answer: "Well, Melissa, you don't have much of an option at this point."
My beautiful surprise turned a whole year old today.
It blows my mind how fast the past year has gone by.
My handsome Xander is growing up, and now I'm not so sure I'm ready for that...
Happy Birthday Xander Elias!
Mommy loves you and is SO thankful that you came to be a part of our family!
