Trying to find the right words for this monumental day is overwhelming. I've thought about what I wanted to say to you as your first birthday approached and so many emotions come to mind. The day you were born was the most amazing day of my life, next to the day I married your father. I remember every detail vividly.
Dada got to cut the chord while they worked on putting me back together. I couldn't wait to see your face and I was VERY impatient. I laid there and just listened to your cries and it just put a sense of calm over me, I knew everything was ok.
Finally about 45 minutes later, I was able to have you in my arms. You nursed right away like a champ and just bopped your way down to find your "food" like your instincts told you to do. That was my second most amazing experience since your birth. You were perfect in every way and I couldn't believe how beautiful you were.
a couple days later, we took you home and welcomed you into your new world. We have never been prouder of anything as much as we are of you. Each day you bless us with your smile and love. This year has been so surreal and fast and I am sad that you are turning one today and going from being my baby boy to a toddler.
We planned a big celebration for you today and I will just enjoy each minute and cherish your joy.
I love you more than life itself. Happy first birthday my sweet child.
