One year ago today I knew my world was going to change soon. I was so close to bringing another human being into this world. Someone to nurture, someone to teach, someone to love. Big stuff. Little did I know just how much this new person was going to shake my little world. Things have been shaken so far up, down, and around…more than I thought possible. And yet…everything feels like it is how it’s supposed to be.

My eyes have been a bit watery lately. Is it the cold bug I’m fighting? Maybe. Or perhaps it’s because I can’t stop watching Declan’s ‘1 year’ video that I made earlier this week. Everyone always exclaims how fast time seems to fly, and it’s never truer than when you add babies and children into the mix. I too feel like this past year has passed us by quickly. Looking at my almost 1 year old, it’s hard to believe how much they grow and change during their first, short (fast) year. But at the same time…holy batman…look at how far we’ve come. Look at how far I’ve come. This year hasn’t just been about a baby growing, this mama has done an awful lot of that herself.

About Tammy

I am a single mother to 2 wonderful children, ages 1 and 5. My youngest was surprisingly born with a rare genetic condition, achondroplasia, which is a type of dwarfism. This blog is a glimpse into my crazy life as I wade through figuring out dwarfism and divorce while enjoying every second of my deficient domestic bliss.
