Happy 1st Birthday Lucas


I feel so blessed. I am so blessed. I can’t even describe it. One year ago today, I became a mom.
Instead of writing a note to Lucas here on my blog, I’m choosing to write (the old fashion way- with a pen) in a journal for him. It’s more important to me that he has something like that- something personal and on paper- that he will hopefully be able to look back and read when he’s older.
I am glad I have this blog though, to keep track of memories and milestones. I started writing here just a couple months before he was born. I spent some time looking back through the year, and here are a few of my favorite post, along with pictures from each month! Unfortunately the rocking chair pictures only lasted a while…

…and some post about motherhood…
  • Being Mom: Lucas was a month old and I’m still in shock that God decided to give me a boy. The hardest and best thing there is.
  • My Little Love is Growing: in overalls and growing so fast.
  • Exhausted: Lucas is 6 months old and I am so sleep deprived.
  • Heaven on Earth: I love sleeping with my baby. Some of my best memories are sleeping with him in bed.
Now I’m a weepy mess.
Happy birthday baby boy. I love you so much. You have accomplished so much this year, I am so proud of you. You make me the happiest mama in the world!!

His 12 month picture is a surprise. It will be revealed shortly!
