One year with Cashton in our life. It has been such an amazing year with Cash being part of our family. This time last year I was doing the absolute most by doing Target pick up orders, getting my nail fixed, and attempting to make casseroles while being in labor. HAHA!
We call him our little pandemic baby. We had Cash in the midst of a pandemic, where no one was able to visit us really or him. There was so much uncertainty in the world, so much fear about what was to come. Yet, Cash gave us that calm in the storm in every way.
For us personally, we were recovering from a tough blow after losing the home we built. We had envisioned that we would bringing Cash home in our new home but that was not the Cash after the last home fell through. Instead we were in a rental property after we sold our home, and awaiting for our next home to be completed. This year didn’t go ever how I would have imagined, but Cashton was the best thing to ever have come out of it!
God knew we needed this chill and joyful baby to come in our lives. I am forever grateful that I get to be his mommy. If I am being honest I was assuming it would feel like same ole’ considering he is my 4th baby boy. I was so wrong. From the moment he arrived it was just the sweetest moment ever. I don’t know if it was because I know this is our last or what, but this past year has been bliss. I was trying to think back on hard moments with Cash, and honestly couldn’t think of any. He has been probably our easiest little one. I think God was like let me take it easy on them with all these boys.
Some highlights for us has been all of his facial expressions, he truly has had the best facials ever. If you haven’t seen them make sure to check out my Cash highlights on my Instagram page. I love the bond that he’s gotten with each of his brothers. We are now doing major power crawling which is hilarious to see, and he currently is sitting at 8 teeth.
I know that as parents we buy a lot of baby products. That last thing we want is to not be prepared. Yet, most cases we end up having more than what we need.
