Oh, my son. It’s been a year since I saw your beautiful face for the first time. I’ll be honest, after a perfect birth we hit a bit of a rough patch. Your colic/GI issues and my PPD…we were quite the pair. I can’t believe that we morphed into the giggly, silly duo that we are today. You laugh your way through life and you’ve never met a stranger. I hope you always stay that way. Your joy is such a gift. My gift has been to cut back on work and spend this first year with you. You, me and daddy. With the bigs (big brother/big sister) in school we just play all day together. We savored every second, knowing that you were our last. I saw every first milestone…smiling, laughing, crawling, walking. So many parents don’t get that opportunity and we’re thankful to be able to work from home. I’m aware of how lucky I am to have been present in almost every moment of your first year. We are blessed.
Happy birthday, TLC. Here’s to many more years of chaotic bliss. I love you.

  • We stay at home mothers are truly blessed. Staying home with your baby the first year is something you will never regret. Congrats again on the completion of your sweet family. As always, I love your photos. Happy Birthday to TLC!
