Seven. Seven years ago today I had no idea just how much my life was going to change. I had no idea what it meant to really be a mother but I knew as I held all 8lbs. 6oz. of him in my arms, that I loved him with all of my heart. I couldn't believe he was ours. I couldn't believe how strongly you could instantly love a little person and want to protect them, nurture them, and have hopes and dreams for them the instant they are placed in your arms. Seven just happens to be my favorite number and seven years ago today we were blessed to meet our first born, Gavin Frank. The one who made us parents. Seven years has flown by but it is also hard to remember our lives without this amazing boy in it. I am so proud to call him our son. I love his gentle, patient, yet silly nature.
