An Entire Year Has Passed

I can't believe my baby boy is 1 today. It is so hard to put into words what I am feeling this morning, but I'll try anyway. There was a time before you were born that I was worried we wouldn't see this day. There were times I was so focused on you hitting every major milestone at the right time that I forgot to cherish the memory. But those fears are gone. Today, on your 1st birthday, you are exactly what you are supposed to be. You are here, you are healthy, you are my sweet baby boy. This morning I nursed you for the last time. It was bittersweet, because although I am ecstatic about having my body back, I will miss the sweet moments we have early in the morning. Someday you will be a big kid, and you will run and jump and yell and scream, and your brother will be your best friend, and you will be too busy to snuggle with Mama. But today you are not too busy. Today I am your best friend. Today you are still a little kid, and I promise to cherish of last minute of it. I love you Little Guy, and I always will.

Love,
Mama
