My world became immensely sunnier the day you were born.
When I first laid my eyes upon you, I was filled with a sense of relief and peace I hadn’t felt in a very long time.
Today we celebrate a year of you.
We celebrate the fact that we thrived and loved every moment of your first year.
Our family was full before and complete, but once you arrived you oozed into all the tiny cracks and crevasses and made us whole. You fit in so nicely and as if you were always meant to be.
I would not be the mother I am without you, and while I am teaching you and your brother life lessons, you are transforming the very core of me.
You are everything I imagined you would be and so, so much more. Thank you for being such an easy baby, for sleeping through the night since you were four months old, for making us laugh and for each and every smile. Thank you for the quiet moments when I hold you close and you stare deep into my eyes with an all knowing sense. Thank you for your patience with me when I’m overwhelmed and for letting me take you for daily walks.
Thank you for being my light in the dark.
I love you, Muffet and I can’t wait for year two!
