It is hard to believe that Braylon is 11 months old.
It kind of makes me sick to my stomach. In so many ways it feels like he just entered our lives, yet I cannot imagine our lives without him here.
Braylon is such a blessing to our family. He has taught us to slow down and appreciate life. To take in the small moments and milestones instead of rearing 100mph full speed ahead racing to the next activity. We learned to sit still-and be thankful.
There is something to be said about HAVING to stay at home for 2 naps a day…hanging out. Enjoying play time. Cherishing meal time as you all experience your baby trying a new food for the first time. Giggling at his nose crinkling or spitting the new food out. And how you cannot believe he ate the nasty green bean/corn/spinach mix and LIKED it! Or how about getting excited over the first poopy diaper in a week! Yes, these are all milestones that I have genuinely appreciated over the last 11 months. My life has become SO much more complicated in many ways. But I have learned to enjoy my moments, my days, and not worry so much about the ‘next thing’.
So, Braylon Maverick….you have been nothing short than a pure blessing to our family. We love you to the moon and back.
