One Year Ago....

We found out our little Miss was on her way. I am going to be honest here and say that I was not exactly over the moon at the news. I was in shock and denial for a few weeks. I just kind of assumed I would need fertility help again. Boy (or girl, as it were), was I wrong! Tucker was only 10 months old when we found out and I had horrible anxiety and guilt for the first half of the pregnancy. I was just sure I would ruin Tucker's life by giving him a sibling so soon. Just like I told a new mom a few weeks ago, "Welcome to Mommyhood: where guilt overfloweth." Truer words were never spoken. :)

Some of those feelings lasted up until Chloe was born. Tucker has adapted and loves his little sister. She is such a beautiful, smiley, calm, laid back baby and she is an amazing blessing to our family. She's my little punkin' head, my Coco Bean, my Christmas Miracle. And that's how I chose her middle name: Noelle. I love my Chloe Noelle and I can't imagine my life without her.
