One Year of Loving You

One year ago today your father and I got to experience the greatest joy in knowing what it felt like to be parents – something we longed for. It has been one entire year since we first learned you were in this world with us. It was one year ago today we told you “we love you” even though we loved you long before you were created. From hearing your heartbeat for the first time to seeing you grow and kick as the days went by, we loved you and longed to meet you. We prayed for you every single day and never went a moment without thanking God for the blessing of you. You are the greatest gift our God could give us and we promise to love you forever.

I wanted to take a moment while you nap to share some of our favorite memories and pictures of you over this past year. We are so proud of your strength, the fact that you are a big boy (I am so sorry I thought you were a girl most all of my pregnancy!), and are so proud to be your parents. It is our hope that you always know our love and even more so know the love of our heavenly Father. You were perfectly and specifically created in His image big guy.

how we told our loved ones that we would have one “joyful” new year
