5 years ago today, I became a mom...

It's not many women that get to celebrate Mother's Day AND their oldest child's birthday on the same day. It's actually a really cool feeling!

Five years ago today I took on the most important job I will ever have - the job of mom. It came along with PPD and all sorts of new-mom jitters, but it has been the greatest gift I have ever received. The love I feel from Noah and Faith is so incredible, my life would be completely dull and shallow without them. Being a mom can be hard, and suffocating, and challenging... but it is also rewarding, and fulfilling, and an honor.

My heart became complete the day I became a mom.

2005: A minimum of two pregnancy tests to confirm our good news!
