Our Sweet Boy Turns 1

Dear Sweet Malachi,

Today is your day! Your very first Birthday!

I could not be a happier mommy. You have made my dreams come true and my life is so full of joy since you came into it!

One year ago, my heart was longing for you, my dear! I was miserable as we waited and anticipated seeing your sweet face.

At the time, I couldn't understand the delay, but now I understand. You weren't ready yet.

1 Year ago today, while you were growing in my heart, a beautiful woman half a world away gave you life. And while I will always long to have been with you from the very beginning, I also wish that this special woman could see even just a glimpse of you today.

I had no idea how incredible motherhood would be! You have completely transformed my life in the very best way!

You are a true inspiration. You have a unique zest for life. You are the most joy filled person I have ever been around. You my son, have a heart of gold!

You are such a comedian and keep us laughing at your antics all the time. Nothing makes you happier than to see a smile on the faces of those around you. I see the gifts that God has already given you and I can't help but wonder what amazing plans He has for your life.

God certainly blessed us when He gave us you.

And today, as we officially say goodbye to our little baby and welcome a new phase of toddlerhood

We celebrate how amazing you are and the incredible (and sometimes difficult) journey your life has been on in this first year of life!

Happy Birthday to our Precious Malachi!

YOU are an amazing mom to encourage your sweetie to destroy his cake on the hardwood floors and the wall. =) YOU ROCK - because really, that is the best thing I've ever seen!!! Uh, especially the hand print. Priceless.

Happy Birthday to your Handsome Son!!!

I LOVE this post. What a great idea to let him do what he wanted with his cake. He is beyond adorable and is blessed to have such great parents.
