This was the most difficult post to get up here*wipes tears of relief* I truly hope you enjoy it! 🙂
2014 has finally ended. It was such a full year for me. Full of ups and downs, trials and triumphs. This is my season of thanksgiving. I sit here in my home and I am full of gratitude to God for everything and everyone He has blessed me with.
I started 2014 with an uncertain future. Pregnant, unmarried, and in spite of all my efforts to change my status, my stubborn Ekiti family maintained their stance and I was being pulled hither thither. I had only a few points on my prayer list:
1.) An absolutely healthy child. Ten fingers, ten toes. all openings patent and no fistulas. Only those in the medical field will understand the things I was afraid of.
2.) I wanted my fiance to become my husband. Not just my baby daddy. He was willing, but the devil was blocking things.
3.) My own home where my in-laws wouldn’t have a say in how many pieces of meat my husband or I eat.
I got all I wanted, though I had soooooo many challenges and shed enough tears to fill buckets.
I finally got married in the most quiet way you can imagine. My brother David Alagbada, who had been the bane of my existence since he was born, became my salvation. He walked me down the aisle on a broken leg, no less. The love i have for him now ehn, e no get part 2! You have earned my respect as you stepped up and stepped into our late father’s shoes. God bless you o!
Let me apologize to those of you who didn’t get to witness it. We’ll make it up to you at our 10th year anniversary 😀
I went into labor Easter Weekend on Saturday. 12 agonizing hours later I was still in there. Complications with the baby’s head not engaging and stuff made the whole thing moot. I had to have a c-section, but finally I got to see him. At 1:20pm Easter Sunday, he came out screaming, all 4 point something kilograms of pink cuteness, head full of hair and tight little fists, complete 10 fingers.
My new family and I moved to our new home in October. A house made more beautiful by the absence of hostile people and the unadulterated love from my husband and son.
Another new beginning for me was finally fully entering Year Book Class of 2015. Finishing exams on the 23rd of December, freed me to have as much fun as possible for the rest of the year without worrying about academics. I’m in YBC, I can’t keep calm!
This Christmas is my baby’s first Christmas and though he wouldn’t remember it, I sha bought him Christmas cloth :P. I also decorated my house and feeling like a madam was awesome. Being married is fun o. Very sweet. I highly recommend it 😉
