To my sweet boy Lincoln:
Today you are one year old. Time sure does fly. It seems like just yesterday your Daddy was placing you into my arms for the first time...yet, it feels like you've been part of my life forever.
This past year has been the happiest, most amazing year of my life. You have taught me so much about myself...you taught me how to be a Mommy, the most rewarding job I have ever known.
The happiness and love you have brought to my life is indescribable. Being your Mommy is the greatest thing I've ever done with my life. Saying "you mean everything to me," doesn't seem like enough. You mean the world to me and so much more. I would do anything for you. You are my sweet, precious son. You are my perfect miracle.
Your strength amazes me. How can someone so tiny be so strong? Physically, you are so much stronger than your Mommy already, and that fills my heart with so much joy.
Your Daddy and I love you so much. We would move mountains just to see you smile. All we want in life, is for you to be happy. Your smile and laughter melts our hearts.
Your birthday is very bittersweet for me. It makes me sad that this first year has gone by entirely too quickly. It makes me even miss those crazy newborn stages, where it felt like we never got any sleep. Yet, at the same time, I am literally awe struck at this amazing little boy you have become. I love watching you discover and learn something new. To see the pure delight in your face, gives me such pride. I love how the littlest things can make you squeal with delight!
Thank you for making me the happiest Mommy in the world. I never knew how much I would love having a son. You are my world.
Happy Birthday my sweet boy, Lincoln. I love you forever!
