A Year in my Life…

Have you ever stopped to think how much of a difference a year can make in a life?

A year and 10 days ago, one of my husband’s sperms randomly collided with my egg. We had no clue it was happening. We were not planning on having a baby – we had just started talking about maybe thinking of starting a family after our wedding, which was to happen the following spring. We were “protecting” ourselves (although, obviously, not very well). But that moment, that unplanned second, changed our lives forever in ways we never could have imagined.

A year later, I’m sitting at the computer with an almost 4 month old baby on my lap, trying to type with one hand while keeping him entertained. In the last 12 months I got pregnant, got promoted, turned 30, got married and had a child. Only that. Each of these events has been happier than the last. Everything went so well that I keep waiting for the other shoe to drop. So far my luck is holding (knock on wood).

Life is full of surprises. I had a very happy one this year. It taught me a lot about myself and my husband, and I love him even more now that I have met the wonderful father he can be. I truly feel blessed.

Have you ever had such a year that changed everything in your life?

    J’ai eu certaines années comme ça, oui… où tout change radicalement! On se dit qu’on n’aurait jamais pu deviner! Je comprends comment tu peux te sentir, et que tu aimes encore plus ton homme maintenant que tu le découvres en père, ben pour moi c’est un beau signe de longévité en tant que couple! Parce que la parentalité, c’est un gros cap à passer dans une famille!
