It seems like only yesterday that we first met; you looking up at me with those big beautiful brown eyes and that full head of hair. You have been growing up so fast. I really don’t know where the time is going. I’m afraid that one day I’m going to blink and you will be all grown up, ready to conquer the world.
Sometimes its hard to hold onto these moments. I can get caught up by the daily grind of life that I forget to stop and enjoy the moment with you. To soak it all in. Having these days at home with you have been so special. I love spending every minute with you; playing and laughing together, chasing each other around the apartment and making funny noises. Spending weekends outside with dad and your doggies. I never want to forget these moments.
I am not always the most patient person and there are times where I feel like the worst mom in the world. But despite my short comings, I hope that you grow up knowing that you are so loved. Having you in my life has taught me how to overcome so many things and you constantly teach me how to be a better mom.
Seeing you so happy and playful and so full of personality and life keeps me grounded. It reminds me that I must be doing something right to raise such an amazing, sweet baby boy and to not worry so much. You have made this year so fun and full of love. I can not wait to see how you grow these next few months before your first birthday.
I love you with all of my heart.
