Dear Samuel

Dear Samuel,
Today is one of those days. It's a day where I feel so dang blessed...blessed to be your mom and blessed to stay home with you each day.

It's a gorgeous day today even though it's only 39 degrees out. The sun is shining, the grass is green, the leaves are budding on the trees and the birds are chirping. It's only 9 a.m. and already you've had a bath, went grocery shopping with me, and now you're down for a nap.

Your friends Noah and Makaela are coming over for lunch. Your dad is home tonight (he has been traveling a lot lately!), and we get to hang out at home together.

You got your first tooth last week. Your smile still melts my heart. You are the happiest baby I know and everyone says so. I've got a picture from this morning to prove it:

I got this darling blue sweater on clearance and this is the first time I put it on you. It's too big, but oh so cute with your blue eyes!

I'm thankful to enter into a new season with you by my side. I look forward to warm summer days, playing in the grass and splashing in the kiddie pool. It's just me and you for four more months and I want to soak it all in.

I love you little man.

I've only seen photos, and even I think he's the happiest baby I've ever seen :)

And you must be the happiest Mommy!
