I am super emotional this week. Blame it on the weather, blame it on my lack of exercise this week, or maybe I just need to up my meds, but momma is pretty sentimental right now.
I just can't believe this is the week, a year ago, that Eli entered our lives.
Everything I've done this week I've thought about myself last year. How I was feeling, what we were doing, what it was like to carry around an extra 42 pounds.
Side note: I feel like George Banks in Father of the Bride. You know how he constantly tells everyone how much his daughter's wedding cost? I think everybody and their second cousin now knows that I gained 42 pounds. 42 pounds and proud baby.
Anyways, everywhere I go, everything I do I think of this time last year and just how much my life was about to change and I had no idea. NO idea.
I've gone back and read our birth story, just taking it all in. I can't believe it has been a year. I have gone through so many emotions throughout the past year, and I've experienced love like never before. What a whirlwind!
And now we are getting ready for Eli's party. We are doing a Rock n Roll theme party on Saturday. I still have a couple of things left to do to get ready but for the most part we are ready to Rock n Roll!!
I know Eli won't remember the party, but I still want it to be a fun celebration, celebrating his first year, and we all know he loves to rock n roll with dad's guitar so it just seemed appropriate!
I took some pics of Eli last weekend to use at the party, this is my favorite pic. Can't believe my baby is going to be one!
