Your First Year

My sweet O-man,

Where to even begin.

You came into our lives at 12:56 pm on February 4, 2009 and my life has never been the same...I will never forget seeing you for the first time--hearing the cry that meant you were announcing yourself to the world!

There are too many emotions swirling around in my heart and head to get it all out in a post this evening...but know this: your first birthday was spent with family, great friends, laughter, a few tears from Mommy--all happy!--and your first experience with a cupcake!

Happy 1st Birthday, my miracle boy. I love you more than you'll ever know.



"I'm supposed to do WHAT with this?"
