I’ll never forget the words the doctor said to me that day. They still ring loud and clear in my head, even 1 year later:
“For your health and safety, I think it’s best that we get this baby out – right now”
It’s one of those moments where time stood still for me. “There’s no way”, I thought, “it’s way too early – I still have a month to go – this isn’t real!”. But unfortunately, my body and the Pre-eclampsia I had had other plans for me and my pregnancy journey. I’ve detailed Liam’s birth story (http://www.emoorephotography.
But one year later, I am healthy and so is this beautiful little human that has been attached to my hip over the last 365 days, and that’s all that matters.
Today, our little monkey is officially a 1-year old. Woof, just typing that last sentence fills me with equal parts incredible joy, coupled with the soul-crushing realization that my baby boy is growing so fast!
Liam has taught us so much about how to love, and how to be better people. His contagious laughter, hilarious sense of humor, and kind heart bring us so much happiness every single day. He looks just like his daddy, and is so stinking smart it’s crazy, and every day he does something that makes Matt and I look at each other and wonder if he did what we think he just did.
Our little red-headed string bean tall ragamuffin has officially made it 365 days into this world and is continuously grabbing life by the horns and showing us that nothing is impossible.
Happy birthday Liam! We love you so incredibly much! <3
