Simon Edward – 1 Year

Sunday was Simon’s 1st birthday.

Simon 1 year muffin We didn’t do anything extravagant to celebrate Simon’s big day. Between the time change and Jude throwing up on the way to church we decided it would be a good idea to have a low-key day at home. I did buy some celebratory blueberry muffins from Whole Foods. He was a fan.

I struggled a lot at the thought of a 3rd baby for the first few months of my pregnancy but every day since his arrival I thank God that he has given us this added blessing. I wonder why I was so worried in the first place. I am so overwhelmed that God would entrust such a precious gift to me. (I feel that way about all my boys) I honestly never knew my heart could contain so much love. Parenting 3 boys is certainly the hardest thing I’ve ever done but I’m so thankful that both God and the boys give me grace, after grace, after grace.

This coming weekend our families will come together to throw a party for Mr. Simon. There will be cake, presents, balloons and tons of smiles. I’m so looking forward to watching this little guy grow up into a wonderful man.
