So hard to believe that this was one year ago today.

One word comes to mind when I think of this time, peaceful. I was finished at work, officially on mat leave. Christmas and family time were right around the corner. Winter was settling in. Days were relaxed. It was the quiet before the storm, so to speak. Before my life would change forever. The anticipation of "when will it happen" was in ever breath. But I felt ready. Ready as I could be. It was a good quiet. It was blissful.

A year later, I feel a different kind of bliss. Knowing that a little person (my little person!) is sleeping blissfully in the other room as I write this. That he is healthy. And that he is loved by so many.

And bliss in that he has given me a two hour nap to re-energize for the rest of our day.
