It’s hard for me to believe that a year ago we hadn’t met yet. I didn’t know if you were going to be a boy or a girl, but I knew we would be introduced on November 11th, even if it wasn’t until very late in the day.
365 days have passed, and it’s impossible to imagine any of those days without your beautiful blue eyes, your belly shaking laughs, your keen sense of the world, your heart melting smile and yes, even your heart breaking tears.
Not every day has been a picnic, but most of them have passed without too much struggle as you start to figure out how things work in the world around you. You are a smart one, putting pieces together and filling in the blanks faster than I think you can at this point in life. You amaze me.
I can’t wait to see what the next revolution around the sun brings for you, my son. I love you. Happy 1st birthday.
