A year ago I still had not committed 100% to naming him Gabriel. I had a few names that I liked that I was going to spring on Jorge if I felt like he didn't look like a Gabriel or an Alexander. A year later I cannot imagine gabe being any other name.
A year ago I was afraid of being a mom. I was afraid of a newborn. Now, I am still afraid that I'm not a good mom sometimes, but I think gabe is turning out Ok. He is walking and talking and sometimes even responding to questions!
A year ago I weighed 202 pounds! Oh my god! There was not a gigantic baby inside of me. Why was I soooo huge?! Since dropping thirty pounds rather quickly in the beginning because of water weight and breastfeeding, I have gotten stuck at a few different weights. Now I have lost almost twenty pounds since June! I'm only twelve pounds away from what I weighed when I went in for my first ultrasound.
A year ago I didn't know I could love someone so much. I would do anything for gabe. He means everything to me. He has a better wardrobe then I do! I didn't know that seeing him walk for the first time would bring me to tears. I also didn't know that I could be so concerned with how much one little man ate or drank in a day. But having a baby changes a lot of things in your life and in your mind and definitely in your heart.
Happy birthday baby. Mommy loves you sooo sooo much!
