Happy Birthday my dear boy. Today you are one years old! Wow. I can still vividly remember this day a year ago and how fast it goes by. A year ago you would lay in my arms and sleep and coo, and now you are independent and on the go all the time. And as we were going through sleepless nights and many feedings and diaper changes, others would remind me that those days would be gone quickly, and they were right. If only I could keep you small a little longer, so that you would snuggle in my arms and let me rock you more. Being a mom is so amazing. Yet my heart strings tug all the time when watching you grow. Filled with both joy and amazement and some sadness for the time that is passing. You have been such a blessing to us and we are so blessed too have you.
A year ago I started this blog for you to keep track of your every development. Now, as we come to an end of your first year I will be sending it off to have it printed and bound. Perhaps this may be one of the best gifts we will be able to give you. I hope you will enjoy the stories and pictures that we have posted along the way. This edition will come to a close with a visit from family to celebrate your birthday next week. Then, we will begin our next journey with you starring as our little toddler.
Happy Birthday to you my little boy. I love you so much!
