One year. 12 whole months. BE STILL MY HEART! Oh it's so sad. It's wonderful, but so sad. I LOVED having a brand new baby, I remember holding him for the first time and staring at his little head. We shared a quiet moment and I studied him carefully. I wished for the minutes to go by slowly so I could remember every detail about him. I felt time slipping away from the moment he was born.. And through every stage and every milestone.. I wanted to stop the time, for just a moment; just to capture his newest little trick in a bottle and save it for when he's older and and I'm missing his baby face so so much. I wanted to freeze that little tiny baby in time. So I took about a million photos and videos to help me preserve these sweet memories of my first born, and how adorable he is. And he has really grown before our eyes. I love his emerging personality and have treasured every second of my first year as a mom. It's just heart exploding, laughter filled, joyous, mountain-top singing kind of love. It's really a gas. Happy Birthday to the little boy who made us a family. We love you, and I can't wait to see what year 2 has in store for you!
