To tell you the truth, I was so nervous to find out that we were having a boy while I was pregnant. A lot of my friends that were Moms had daughters, I had an older sister, and the majority of my cousins (who are like siblings to me!) are girls as well. The unknown was daunting and I had no clue how I was going to connect to this little guy that was growing inside of me.
Now, with a year and a couple months under my belt as a Mom, I couldn't see my life any other way. I would be lying if I didn't admit that there are days I wish Ramsey was just a little bit less active and daring, but when I'm honest with myself I realize how much of a gift having an active and adventurous boy has been.
The summer is going by way too fast (as it always does), but my guy and I have really enjoyed every last bit. I have really gotten to know him on a different level over the past few months and we have connected like never before. We have spent more hours outside rather than inside and have explored almost every inch of our backyard and the trails by our house. It's so much fun to watch him be so purely excited and full of joy. There is always a hill to climb, some dirt to get into, and some bird searching to be done.
