It seriously has been a year since my sweet L has come into our lives.  I still remember like it was yesterday.  I know that right now as I type this it is 730AM, I know that at that time a year ago they had just started pitocin only about an hour before and I was already dilated to 6.  I know that they were trying to get the epidural to work because it wasn't and I was in so much pain and still in a mental battle with myself for even choosing to get an epidural in the first place because going in to it I didn't want one.  I was so excited to meet my little guy that none of that mattered just that each minute was one closer to finally seeing his sweet face!

This year has flown by and looking back seems like it was so long and so much was accomplished.  I raised a child to be a year old, and kept my sanity in the process.  Not only did I raise him for a year but he is happy and saying words and building towers with blocks, things that big boys do...and this is just another confirmation that he is a big boy now and not a sweet little baby anymore.  He makes me laugh daily actually several times a day he is so funny and I can just hear the calls I am going to get from his teachers one day because I am sure he will be Mr. social and the class clown.  He loves to be out and with people he loves playgroup and seeing his friends.

He loves to rough house with daddy but is a mommas boy through and through and I LOVE it.  He is a cuddle bug and I hope that never fades. Last night he was having a rough night, the exhaustion from a short nap was getting to him and he was hungry too and the whole way in the car that we were going to pick up dinner he was having a melt down  screaming fit.  when we got home I fed him and was holding him and every soften he would look up at me then tilt his head to rest it on my shoulder.  It was so sweet and melted my heart every time he did it.

We have had so much fun with him and I know it has just begun.  I am so blessed that God chose me to be his mommy and I pray every day that he guides me in the huge responsibility of raising him to be a respectful, honest and loving christian man.

I am sad that this first year is over I faintly remember his tiny body snuggled against mine now he sill snuggles but he is so big.  I know this first year is going to be a fun one, he is going to say more words and start walking and running and I just can't wait to see his personality develop and shine.

So here is to a day of celebration! A day of starting new memories and birthday traditions.  Here is to the sweetest little boy I know, my sweet L!

This is the birthday boy waking up this morning!

That brought such tears of happiness to my eyes. I love my little L. You have done such a wonderful job this year. It also touched my heart that I remember when you were so little and have become such a beautiful Christian woman. I love you my sweet Katie B.

Happy Birthday (again) little buddy! He's so handsome! I made a comment earlier today that it's funny how these kids change so much from day one yet stay the same. Miracles!

I love that hospital pic of your family. Such a great moment!

I'm Katie a 27 year old mommy and wife. Welcome to my blog where I will chronicle the happenings of my life as I find the balance between being both SAHM by day and CVICU nurse by night.

I love Jesus and strive to be more like Christ every day. Running, reading, and cooking are some of my favorite past-times. I love photography but I am no pro, but it helps I have such a cute subject to practice on!!
