Yesterday was your 1st birthday! I still can't believe I'm the mother to a wonderful one year old. Time has gone by so so fast. I remember trying to get pregnant with you. It took a good year and a bit more until we were blessed to see that you were on your way. I loved being pregnant with you. Your kicks and poking your butt out were the best things ever. I so enjoyed giving birth to you. It was the most beautiful moment when a year ago, I heard you cry and you were laid on my chest for the first time. I looked into your wide open eyes and immediately fell in love. The year went by so fast, and included some trials, and more triumphs. You learned to smile, laugh and sit up. Then came some walking, then crawling, and now more walking. You grew into the most handsome little boy I have ever seen. You are silly, and like to play games with mommy all the time. You love it when I say "Sponge Bob!", and burst into a fit of giggles whenever I do. You are also very sensitive. You can't even look at some people without bursting into tears, and if mommy and daddy raise their voices even a little bit, you start to cry. But, you are also the most loving, and snuggly little guy. Your favorite thing to do is to come to bed with mommy after you wake up and we snuggle while you enjoy your bottle. And you get so excited when daddy gets home from work. It just melts my heart. Matt, you are the best little boy that I could have ever asked for. God really did break the mold when He made you. I love you sweetie with all of my heart.
