He's 1 . . . now what????

As is typical Baby Maker fashion I have built up this day in my head for weeks. Shoot if I'm honest months. I started plotting and planning cakes, decorations, his outfit.

I cried a little yesterday, snuggling him before his nap. Remembering all of the moments of this first year. How quickly they have been played out.

I smiled as I kissed his amazingly delicious cheeks. Remembering sitting in the hospital bed running my fingers across them about a million times. He was wrapped up so tight, with a little cap on that his cheeks were really the only exposed part of him. I remember that first night in the hospital, after the scary things had passed. I didn't want to take my eyes off of him. Every little breath, noise, cry melted my heart. I remember sitting on the edge of my bed, praying fiercely that God protect him. That God keep him safe, healthy, and happy.

There is absolutely nothing in this world that has given me more pride then being this little guys mom. And now has he grows into a sweet and precious little boy, I fall more and more in love each and every day.

We are having a quiet day today, we'll blow out a candle and eat some cupcakes . . . but mostly I will just breathe in all of the moments that this day brings.  

Adios Mis Amigos,


  1. Happy first birthday little man!

    Also, I can totally speak from experience now that while the first year is awesome, the second year is even better. 20 months is so freaking awesome I can't even begin to describe it, and yet I was totally verklempt at his first birthday, too.

  2. Wait until he's two, it only gets better.

  3. Found your blog through Texas blogging Gals. Your little man is so adorable! It is perfect when you said you just want to breathe in all the moments because they truly do go way too fast! I am a mother of three boys and it is insane how fast time flies!

  4. That bath picture with his head sticking out is too cute!!

  5. You think the first year was great..wait until you get to 2! The year flies by and he changes so much. You'll love it!
