when you came into my life, i became a mother.
It's hard now to imagine not being a mama. I remember how excited I was to meet you, how amazed I was that my body could grow another whole human, not to mention birthing one! I also remember being scared, of messing it all up, of not being strong enough, of doing the wrong thing. I have done all of those things, and you still teach me more each day how to be strong, and recover and learn from my mistakes. You offer hugs when I you know I need them. You tell me jokes whenever you think of them. You create and build and explore and experiment and I still feel so lucky to be your mama. Happy Birthday, Gus!
