Three years ago today, my world changed forever. I went into the hospital for my scheduled c-section not knowing if the sweet baby inside was a boy or a girl. At the time, I had a 16 month old girl, so I thought I wanted another girl. A boy would have been fine but I knew girls…a girl would be the better choice, right? Wrong. Oh, I was so wrong.
This little man changed my life within seconds of seeing his sweet face. I needed a boy. I was meant to be a mom to a boy. I adore my boy. I am blessed beyond words to be the mom to this boy.
My road to mommyhood was hard and long. I always prayed for God to just please give me one baby. Just one. And then I got two. Kensington was my blessing but Smith was God’s ultimate icing on the cake. I love the scripture Ephesians 3:20, “God can do anything you know-far more than you could ever imagine or guess or request in your wildest dreams.”
I asked for Kensington. I prayed and prayed and begged God for Kensington. And he answered that prayer (not in my time but in His). However, I didn’t ask for Smith. God just blessed me with him. He knew what I needed when I didn’t even know to ask for it.
January 18, 2013, my boy is three today. I love his big blue eyes, his dimples, the fact that he sleeps a lot 🙂 and most of all, his sweet spirit. Happy Birthday Smith William. I’m so grateful God knew I needed you.
