I'm up late getting ready for your party tomorrow. It's not the smartest thing to be doing because I'll be up again shortly to feed your little sister, but I can't seem to go to bed. I've been watching the amazing slide shows of you that our friend Jen created throughout the past year:
6 month photos
9 month photos
Look at you! Look at how you've grown my sweet sweet little man. Seeing pictures of you as a newborn makes me want to start bawling. My heart just fills to full as I remember all the emotions of getting the call, going to the hospital, seeing you for the first time, hugging your birthmom and birth grandma, feeding you, holding you and dreaming about a future with you.
I love these photos because they capture your facial expressions, your laughter, your personality, and who God has created you to be.
I am so proud to be your mama Samuel. I am still in awe that God gave you to us. I will spend the rest of my life thanking Him.
This past year has been better than I could have ever dreamed. You are my miracle man Samuel. Always and forever. Happy happy Birthday sweet boy. I love you.
