1 Year Post NICU

Today marks the one year anniversary since we were blessed enough to bring Bryar home from the NICU after 20 days. This is not only an anniversary from the NICU but also the day that he first met his big sister in person for the first time. I will never forget her holding him in her little arms with her eyes filling up with tears at the love that she had for her baby brother. That very moment was probably the sweetest and most proud of my life. The love that she has for him, has not changed.

I remember being so on edge the day that we were in hopes to bring him home. He had to pass a carseat test, along with several other check off lists, but thankfully he had grown strong enough that it was not an issue. I had to wait at the hospital for Curtis to pick up Charli from school, and I got Bryar dressed in his huge monogrammed gown, booties and hat. I took a thousand photos of him, then just sat rocking him with big Mommy tears thinking about all of these things our son had accomplished since being born.

Bringing Bryar Wayne home after those several days was such a relief and blessing. I was nervous about being a Mommy of two, and being a family of four but I know that God picked the perfect baby to be apart of our family. This baby may still not sleep but he has the perfect little sense of humor and personality that fits right into us!

Story of Mommy

My photo
I am a sinner saved by the grace of God. A wife to the 5oh, and Mother to Charli Beth and Bryar. This is my story of Motherhood, life experiences and sometimes even my overwhelming heart all typed out. I believe in second chances, yet the firm hand of parenting. That sweet tea is of the comfort food category. Chickens belong in every backyard. Children should each have a responsibility of their own while helping take care of duties in the home. Sports are a must for our family, and we spend many nights on courts or fields. We consistently feel new to each of the experiences that are brought into our lives. But we are always excited for the journey in which God has given us.
