215 words of journaling: It’s hard to believe it’s been 10 years since Caden was born. Where does the time go? In the beginning, the days were so long. But now that I’m looking back, the years are so short. So incredibly short. And getting shorter. Caden has grown so much in the last decade. Back then, on his first days of life, he was just about 7 pounds. Now, at age 10, he’s just a few inches short of me. Back then, all he could do was sleep & eat & cry. Mostly eat & cry. :) Now I am amazed at his talents & knowledge & skills, the way he thinks, how he’s learning. Back then, we didn’t know he had autism. Now, he’s made such strides in overcoming his challenges. I am so very proud of him. Ten years ago, this little boy drastically changed my life. For the better. I feel so privileged to be his mother. So very grateful that he is my son and that he joined our family when he did. And yes, so grateful for all the years in between, the laughs & the tears & the triumphs & the worries & the entire spectrum of emotions & experiences. I wouldn’t trade him for those years for anyone or anything else.
