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.
