On this the last day of the year, as I always do, I am reflecting on the year past. The year began with the wait for our child. Is this labor? Is it time? Then on January 7, I went into labor. 2 days of lots of pain later, Chesley was born, 6 lbs. 3 oz., 19 inches long. He filled our hearts with so much love. And as the year has past and we have watched him grow before our eyes, we love him more every day. I'm thankful that there were no major tragedies or hardships for our family this year. No deaths, sicknesses, hurricanes. Not every year is so good as this one. We were able to fully concentrate on our child. He does something new every day. He is getting close to being able to stand, but still a ways from walking. That's fine by me. I think it will be a while for him. Nathan and my relationship has grown a lot this year, trial by fire, I would say. Hopefully we can build on our marriage and make it stronger in the new year. A child was gracefully bestowed on us, and we tend to put him first, and our relationship falls to the side. I feel a new closeness to my mother after having a child. So I do want to be with her tomorrow on my 29th birthday.
The end of the year also marks the end of my blogbook. So here the year end, the book ends, but the story keeps going!
