It’s happened. A whole year has went by since your premature birth. On this day last year, you and I were both fighting for our lives. By God’s grace, we won the battle little guy. Praise the Lord!
It is hard to believe that you really are a year old! Just in the last couple of months, you have learned to sit up, crawl, and pull-up. You babble like it’s nobody’s business, and you have two shiny bottom teeth. Yes, you have decided it’s time to get the show on the road. You have shown us that it’s time for you to catch up!
This past year has been filled with so many different emotions. I am so thankful that the Lord chose you to help heal your mama’s broken heart. The day you were released from the hospital last June, you decided to find a permanent residence in my arms, on my back, or attached to my hip. And, I am perfectly okay with that! We are pretty much inseparable.
Your smile is breathtaking. Your laughter has healing power. And, I absolutely love how tight you snuggle me every single night. I wouldn’t want it any other way.
I know the Lord has a special plan for both of us. I can’t wait to teach you more about Him. I can’t wait to tell you how He saved our lives. But most of all, I can’t wait to teach you about our Savior’s love. I pray it will be evident in both of our lives. His love is all that matters.
Happy 1st Birthday sweet baby boy! Thank you for all the kisses and hugs. They mean so much to us. We all love you more than you will ever know.
