Trenton ~ The Beginning

It's 7 days until Trenton's 7th birthday.  So... In the next 7 days I will break down a year of his life.

Year 1

I can remember being so terrified of being a mom at 22.  When he was first born, I was afraid to show how much I loved him in front of people because I wasn't used to such an overwhelming emotion and I wanted to act cool and in control.  Like, "I got this."  LMAO.  It doesn't make sense, but being so desperately in love with such a teeny person made me feel utterly vulnerable.  And I didn't have any friends with kids or any experience with kids.  I just plain didn't know what I was doing or how to cope with what I was feeling {Love/Worry/Happiness/Fear/Depression/Uncertainty}. 

It came quickly though.

I have said, many times, that Trenton saved me from me.  He gave me purpose and changed me in every way possible.  His birthday marks the anniversary of my becoming whole.


He was perfect.  Healthy.  Happy.  Easy.

No colic.  He started sleeping through the night at about 9 weeks.  He ate well.  He wasn't fussy.  He only cried when he was hungry.  And I'm serious.  This was the easiest and happiest baby on the planet. 

Trenton laughed for the very first time at about 2.5 months as I zipped up his jammies one night and said "ZZZIIIPPPP!" in a silly voice.  I remember it like it was last night.  He was wearing his blue terry cloth puppy pjs and his little round face just lit up.

I married his dad when he was 7 months old and he wore the sweetest little tux and tiny patent leather shoes that ever existed.

I quit my job when he was about 8 months old so I could stay home with him.

He was walking at 10 months and RUNNING soon there after.

His first birthday party was luau themed.
He was basically bald until well after a year old and only had 2 teeth on the bottom.  He was precious.  People would stop me in the store or on the street and ask to hold or take pictures of him.  He was {and still is} that charismatic. 

He was amazing.  Every day, I would look into his sweet face and wonder what could I have done to deserve such a sweet and precious baby.  I would do anything for one more day of 8 week old Trenton who loved to tuck himself under my neck to snuggle and coo.

One Day Old

Thanks Sasser! And Leigh, Trenton was easy. Carter was... less easy but not difficult. They are MUCH more different now personality wise.
