Did it really happen six years ago? It feels like I blinked – and BOOM! – Ryder will be six this weekend. My tiny little baby – born at exactly 37 weeks, singing his way into the world with a raspy, soft cry that tugged at my heart.
As we doted on him in the hospital, I turned to my husband and asked,
“So, what did you get me?”
“Get you?” he repeated, confused.
“You know, for Mother’s Day” I replied with a smile.
We both grinned at each other, because it didn’t need to be said; we both knew that this tiny little baby was the best Mother’s Day gift I could have ever asked for.
Today, to celebrate my first true love, I’m throwing back to the summer of 2010, when Ryder was a boisterous, curious and mischievous 2-year old, the very definition of terrible two’s. But c’mon, look at that sweet little cherubic face – I could never be mad at him for long.
This weekend, we’ll toast to Ryder’s 6th birthday and Mother’s Day. And if I think about it, we can’t have one without the other, can we?
