What the heart wants

She’s a rebel. He follows the rules.
He’s a romantic. She doesn’t have time for hearts and flowers.
Sometimes opposites attract.
Sometimes love doesn’t make sense.
But you know what they say:
The heart wants…
What the heart wants.

  • When I became a mom, I was freakin clueless. 
When Fig Jr was born and given to me,  I wondered how I would ever raise this newborn all the way to adulthood. 
When we took our son home, I was terrified. But then I learned who he was. He was an excellent feeder. He was an incredible sleeper. He was an old soul with a patient temperament.

As he grew, he only became more awesome. We've been through it all as mother and son. We've laughed until our bellies hurt. We've cried hard tears. We've learned all about challenges and especially about diabetes. We've gone to Seahawks games, Disneyland, and even to meet Peter Fachinelli. Last night, we watched the Astros win the World Series.

And then this odd thing happened. I woke up this morning and Fig Jr. turned 21 years old. 
Somehow, I did it. I raised that newborn into an adult, and I couldn't be more proud of him. 
Happy Birthday, Cameron! ❤
