One Year Ago.

31 Aug

One year ago today you were placed you in my arms for the very first time.

You weren’t even cleaned up, and I was a bit delirious after 18 hours of labor…but there was no denying the immediate love we felt for each other.

I couldn’t have possibly known just how much that love could grow so much in 365 short days.

And as I think back on all the memories we’ve made together in just a year-I’m just so proud.

Proud to be your Mommy.

Proud to call you my son.

Proud to think about all you’ve accomplished in your short time here on earth.

And the best part is…we did it together-You, Me, and Daddy.

Henry-Daddy and I love you more than we could ever put into words.

You have taught us a new, better way to love. A better way to live life. To appreciate the little things. To laugh more often.

You’ve helped us realize our greatest accomplishment was the day you were born.

And every day since has been a gift.

Happy Birthday little man.

You are our entire world.
