the big 4-0

Grayson is 40 weeks and 1 day old today. He has officially been outside his little womb for the same amount of time that he was in! 

I remember the night I found out I was pregnant like it was yesterday.  I had been complaining all week to my friends about a pain in my side. They kept telling me to take a pregnancy test and I kept blowing them off. We had only been trying for one month...there was no way I was pregnant. Well, the peer pressure got to me and when I got home from dinner that night I took a test. Well, I think we all know what happened after that!

I felt like I was pregnant forever. It was the longest 40 weeks ever. These last 40 weeks? Totally have flown by! Funny how that works.

I've never known love like the kind of love I feel for my baby. It's something you can't understand until you have a kid. My mom always told me that and now I get it. This little man has made the last 40 weeks the best of my life & I really can't imagine life without that little toothy grin!
