Well yesterday was a super special day at the Roath house as we celebrated my son’s first birthday!! Below I’ve included 365 pictures for every day he has been alive….JUST KIDDING! Geeze, I wouldn’t do that to you guys! 😆😆 But I did just want to take a second to recognize my favorite little fella and share some pictures of him diggin’ into his cake!😊
He had so much fun! We decided to go small, like super small, maybe 8/10 people there. We did the same thing with my daughter. I’m less stressed knowing it’s just family, super easy, no crazy house cleaning..lol otherwise …well, I’d be teetering on the brink of a breakdown like that little lady on TV(see photo below).. and nobody wants to see that crazy Stephanie on such a fun day.🤷♀️
Real quick, I won’t go into detail about the birth story but I will say, I slept through the contractions for a good hour or so, I kept telling myself in my sleep they were “time of the month” cramps.(almost like sleeping through your alarm because you’re dreamin, ya know?)
A sharp pain woke me up from sleep as well as my dog Kevin, who was frantically pacing around our bed. (Good boy Kev!)
I quickly snapped into reality and realized “Wait, I’m pregnant! and those aren’t cramps, they’re contractions! After being A WEEK OVERDUE I was finally in labor! About time Riv! Needless to say, it was crazy…running, deep breathing, goodbyes to my daughter- it was my first time leaving her and goodbyes my parents- who had flown in from Arkansas the night before! Within a few hours he was here! Thankfully everything went smooth! Didn’t take long for the little guy to arrive! (which makes me wonder how long I slept through contractions!)
Anywho, it has been an awesome year with him! and it’s been truly beautiful watching my daughter grow into a big sis! She’s learning patience and sharing right now to say the least😆! I can’t wait for many more memories with this sweet boy! Just a few more pictures because, well…i’m a proud mom! haha Have a wonderful week everyone! I’m officially the mother of a 3 year old and a 1 year old! Also I kept the picture at a min of twenty..You guys be proud. 😆❤✨ My little man’s life in a few photos, no particular order!
You grew inside of my belly,
you breathed and lived within me,
I’ve felt you from your first movements,
I was the first to touch you,
I felt the first embrace of your skin.
There is nothing I can say,
to describe the way you’ve changed me.
There is nothing I can tell you,
to describe what you mean to me.
See there’s a connection
between a mother and son
And there is nothing stronger
than a mother’s sworn love.
With everything I have to offer to the world,
It is to you only, I can make this oath,
I’ll always be your biggest fan my dear little one,
my sweet River Roath.
I love you
-Mom aka Steph
Have a wonderful week you guys! Thank you so so much for stopping by and celebrating Riv’s big day!❤✨✨✨❤
