My Baby You'll Be.

My Baby You'll Be.

Today, January 8, 2014, was Jackson's FIRST birthday. And even though we had no REAL plans for his actual birthday and the weather was gross, the day turned out to be all I wanted and more for my sweet lil man. As soon as he woke up, he crawled up next to me in bed and smiled like he always does and I sang him Happy Birthday while we snuggled {OH the sweetness!}, and then I took him to the kitchen and made his favorite blueberry pancakes for breakfast. I filled the day with his favorite things, including 2 baths {which he would take 10 of if I let him}, jumping and playing with his friends at the Loco-motion bouncy house, a bright blue balloon and chocolate cake specially made for him by his Daddy. The whole day I wanted to squeeze him 1,000 times and kiss him 1,000 more and somehow let him know the significance of this day, how special he is, and let him feel all the light that he's brought into our lives. But maybe that cake did all the talking. 

I kissed and held him extra long tonight and tucked him in bed as my new, suddenly big boy. This evening and even yesterday I spent hours going through photos of the last 12 months with Jackson, reliving this day, going through all of his clothes he no longer fits in and wondered exactly when it was that he stopped being so tiny. There is no bigger happiness and nothing greater I could ever wish to call myself but Momma.

My sweet sweet boy, you are my world. Happy first birthday!
