One Year Ago Today

One year ago today, I was called in early to the hospital and was induced four days overdue to deliver a new baby boy. It was beautiful.

These pictures show our joy in welcoming him to our family much better than I ever could. Words really can't describe how much I love this boy. I was terrified of raising a boy into a man and I still am, but he has captured my heart so completely that it's all worth it. When he smiles it lights up my world and I can't help but smile back. This birthday is bittersweet because we've come so far and there's much to celebrate, and yet I don't want my little Ammon to grow up. Ever. But, he will no matter what I do and so:

Happy Birthday my little boy! I can't believe I get to have you as my son and I'll love you forever.
Love, Mom


  1. Happy Birthday Ammon! I can't believe he is already a year! Time just flew for me, so I can only imagine how fast it went for you!

  2. Happy Birthday Ammon! I can still remember coming to the hospital and holding him for the very first time :). He was so little then! It's almost not fair how quickly the get big from being so small when they first get here...but for some reason, that's just how it has to happen! Hope today is a great day for you and for your family :)
