Julien Joshua turns 21

I can’t believe this day is here! My baby boy turns 21 today, he’s a true grown adult now. I know us moms always say “it seems like yesterday ” but seriously it really does. 

I remember being pregnant and doing my best to eat healthy, even giving up my beloved coffee and wine. I had cravings for pickles, salsa and hummus. I enjoyed buying maternity clothes and especially baby clothes. 

I remember your birth day and how I couldn’t wait to meet you. How nothing helped ease the contractions, my birth plan went straight out the window! I begged the doctor to finally give me an epidural! ( I stated in my plan that I only want a natural birth with no pain meds) I was in heaven after that! Lol! And when you finally came into the world I cried with pure happiness. I never knew a love as powerful as that. Motherhood is the most beautiful thing in the world.

Since that day, I’ve watched and helped you grow into a curious boy, loving brother and now a grown adult. You love to explore and try new things and I love that about you. 

I cherish all my memories and pray we create new ones together as we grow older. You will always be my special one because you were my first. First hug, first baby kiss, first tooth, first lost tooth, first step, first day of school, first graduation, first college….
I Love you forever, as long as I’m living, my baby you’ll be…
