Happy 1 Year Birthday!

Sons are a heritage from the Lord, children a reward from Him.
Psalms 127:3

12 Month Picture


One year ago today our world as we knew it ended and in its place is a world filled with you! The last year has taken us on an amazing journey. We are so proud of the little boy that you are becoming, and it is so fun to start seeing your little boy features and your little boy attitude (well, not always so fun to see this part). We can see each of us in the faces you make and in your mannerisms, but you look a lot like your daddy (except for mama’s ears). We thought that you might have maxed out your cuteness a few months back, but you just get cuter every day. You love exploring and testing all the boundaries. It looks like you are going to be "all boy" in that respect. You warm up to people quickly, but we love how you shyly snuggle into our chests when we go to a new place with lots of new people.

Every day our love for you grows as does our love for: God whom has truly entrusted us with our highest calling; our family as we see the love that went into our raising and as we see the love they have for you; and each other as we watch you, a true symbol of the love we have for each other, grow as well. We love you so much and we look forward to the years to come. We are so excited to see how you will grow and who you will become.

May God bless and keep you always
May your wishes all come true
May you always do for others
And let others do for you
May you build a ladder to the stars
And climb on every rung
May you grow up to be righteous
May you grow up to be true
May you always know the truth
And see the lights surrounding you
May you always be courageous
Stand upright and be strong
May your hands always be busy
May your feet always be swift
May you have a strong foundation
When the winds of changes shift
May your heart always be joyful
And may your song always be sung
May you stay forever young

Ma-ma and Da-da
