My baby

Big one year old….. You make me laugh like no one else can, make me smile first thing in the morning and the last thing at night. You make my eyes shine with tears of pride, just to see you turning one, just to be your mom. You wiggle out of my arms to explore your world. Then return again and again. I realize being a mother means sometimes letting go…..and being in this loving place for you to come home to.

Who knew sunburns could be so enchanting? A simple game of peek-a-boo could make you laugh every time? Who knew sweet baby songs were so wonderfully silly? Or that banana makes perfect finger paint? Who knew that one little person could take my hand and show me the whole world all over again.

It’s amazing what you’ve learned, taking in the world with you bright eyes. Feeling and tasting everything you can hold in you tiny hands…..amazing how you’ve captured my heart.

The way you smile when I walk into a room, the way you stretch out you little arms to lift up, the way your sure of me, sure that ill take care of you….this bond is stronger and more loving then I could have ever expected.
