Happy Birthday Sean

As I sit here writing this on the eve of Sean's first birthday there is a lot going through my head, the first of course is complete denial that our little boy is already a year old - has it been a whole year?!??! Really?!?!? It was only 366 days ago that I was still pregnant and in such anticipation of meeting our still unnamed son. What was he going to look like? Whose nose will he have? When will he start sleeping through the night? And then my water broke, and only 18 hours later you were born.


Such a blessing from day one - You instantly brought such overwhelming joy to us. I never imagined I would or could feel so much love for something. I remember just crying because I was so in awe of and in love with you. Here you are at two weeks - you were so little you fit in our hands, pretty amazing.



I know you won't remember you first birthday party, so we took lots of pictures to show you someday. Although you did have a little meltdown after everyone sang Happy Birthday to you, you managed to enjoy some of your carrot cake cup cake - even licked the candle.






Sean, you are such a blessing to us and we love you more than words can express!

Happy 1st Birthday, Sean! I know we are clear across the country and we don't get to see you often, but you have such a special place in our hearts -- we love you very much! Be sure to thank your Mom someday for keeping this blog, it's so great that we get to watch you grow up! You're one handsome fellow, Cowboy! Love, Aunt Stacey and Uncle Will
