To My Sweet Baby Boy
I can't believe tomorrow you are 1! You have grown into such a big boy!
You have been the biggest blessing to your Dad and I. This past year has been the best year by far.
We were nervous to become parents. We didn't know what to expect.
But we fell in love. With you. And each other.
The road to getting you here was hard. Daddy and I cried a lot before you. (Mostly Mommy). We wanted you so badly. We prayed and prayed. When we found out you were coming, and that you were healthy, we were so thankful. So thankful to God for the blessing that you are.
The day you were born was the most beautiful day. To hear you cry and that you were healthy was the most fantastic moment. And seeing just how adorable you were was the icing on the cake. So many people commented on just how cute you were. I agreed.
You have been the sweetest baby boy. You snuggle with me when I need it most. You love to smile and wave 'hello' to people. Everyone who meets you falls in love with you.
All the ladies at church think you are pretty special. They often argue on who got to hold you during nursery :)
You are the most loved child I know. Your Dad and I love you to the moon and back. You also have the most amazing family who would do anything for you. You are blessed with many grandparents, great-grandparents, aunts, uncle and cousins.
You also have many "aunts" and "uncles", who may not be related to you by blood, but love you like they were.
So many people pray for you, sweet boy. You are covered in prayer constantly. Prayers for protection, health, and most of all, a heart that will love the Lord.
Even though you turning 1 is bittersweet, I am beyond excited to see you grow. To see you learn new things, to see your personality, and to see you know Jesus as your own savior.
I thank God every day for the privilege of being your Mama.
I have tried to cherish each moment and season as it comes. From the sleepless nights as a newborn (special cuddle time), to playing together (you love peek a boo!). I know that each phase that passes will only bring an even better phase.
You are very special. You are very loved.
I love you forever, sweet boy.
