Almost 13 years ago I gave birth to my son, Jake. He is and will always be my first baby. He is who made me a mother. <3
My second best day of my life was the day I married my husband. My husband and I graduated high school together, but never dated. 15 years later we reconnected via Facebook. 4 months after that Facebook connection we had our first date. 3 months after our first date we were engaged and moved in together. 5 months after we were engaged we got married. To some, that may seem fast but when you have been waiting your entire life for your soul mate, you can't wait another minute to start your life together...
And the third best day of my life was the day I became a mother again. This time to a sweet baby girl. The day she came into this world was absolutely amazing. After suffering two early pregnancy losses in a row, I wasn't so sure that another baby was meant to happen for me. I entered into my pregnancy with her hopeful and fearful all that the same time. Each ultrasound, each time we heard her heartbeat was a breath of relief and another day closer to actually holding her in my arms. My husband delivered her (with our midwife standing right behind him ;) ), and when he placed her on my chest I knew my life was complete. <3
