A Letter

Dear Owen,

As I sit here on the eve of your first birthday.....I just want to say "Thank you."
~Thank you for coming into my life and changing everything! Your daddy and I were pretty sure that you were never going to come, but finally the baby we had always hoped for was here! Even though our journey wasn't easy, you have been SO worth it!
~Thank you for being everything that I could have ever hoped, wished and dreamed for. I can't imagine my life without you!
~Thank you for filling my days with wonder and amazement. I love to watch you as you discover and learn new things!
~Thank you for making me smile! Your laugh is contagious and your smile melts my heart.
~Thank you for letting me hold you while you sleep. It amazes me that you were once growing inside I have to settle for holding you on the outside:)
~Thank you for your cries. It lets me know that you still need me around.
~Thank you for your kisses. They are the sweetest in town.
~Thank you for loving me.....and thank you for letting me love you back.
~Thank you for being you.
~Thank you for making my life complete.....I didn't know what I was missing until you were here.
~Thank you for making me a mommy. It was a dream I wouldn't have achieved without you.
~Thank you, thank you, thank you!

I can't believe it has been a whole year already! It seems like only yesterday you were this tiny little thing and now you are a little little boy. The little boy who has touched my life in unfathomable ways. I love you more with each passing second. I can't wait to see what the next year brings!
