A year ago today I took a test that would change my life forever. As I sit here watching that sweet baby playing on the floor I am overwhelmed with emotion. I knew I loved him from that very moment but I never imagined how much I would love him. My heart actually feels like it could burst some days.
I remember being so nervous to take that test. I so badly wanted it to be positive. I was by myself at my office (my boss was out of town). I couldn't wait till I got home, plus I knew I wanted to make something cute to tell Patrick. He was working 2nd shift and didn't get home until 10:30 that night. It seemed like torture waiting on him to get home that night. Anyone that knows me knows I can't keep a secret, I was so proud of myself, I didn't tell anyone for a whole week. Patrick wanted to tell everyone on Mother's Day but it was just too soon for me. I was still trying to really wrap my head around the idea. It was such a special time in our lives.
