Where do I start. How do I start. What can I possibly say to properly express how you've changed my heart, what you've brought to our family, how sweet your soul is. How can I put into words how far I feel like I've come as a mom, how you just make me look good. Like really, you are always smiling. Always. Your energy just oozes sweetness. You just make the world a brighter place. Truly. One year with you and I feel as though I can't even remember life without you. One year ago we were all eagerly awaiting your arrival, and now... it's like you were here all along. I just can't get enough of you. Ever. I kiss your face relentlessly and just don't know how the world ever worked without you in it. One year my baby, you've grown so much, changed so much, changed me so much. You make my heart more full, more vibrant, more alive, more present. You make life so beautiful, I'm so deeply grateful, that you've chosen us. That we've found each other again, because it feels like I've known you for a thousand years, and I hope to know your for a thousand more. I love you. We all love you. You make our family... full. Full of laughter, full of light and full of joy. You are amazing Elliot and every day with you just makes a lot of sense. You are so loved.
Happy First Birthday baby boy. You are my heart. xo
