To the moon and back

How did we get here?

Wasn't it just yesterday that I heard Gibson's first cries and Danny telling me that our baby was a boy?


Wasn't it last week that we were in the throes of colic and postpartum depression?


Didn't Gibson smile for the first time just a few days ago?


I'm pretty sure that Gibson learned to sit up by himself only a few hours ago...right?


Didn't he just cut his first teeth?


When did this infant


become this?


My sweet boy, we've made it so far.  We were bumbling first time parents with no idea what to do with the screaming, needy, gorgeous human we created.  We have made plenty of mistakes over the course of your short life, but please know that we always love you and want what is best for you.  And I hope that you will forgive us for the mistakes we have made and the many mistakes we are sure to make over the next 17 years.

Sometimes I worry that maybe I'm not the best mom for you, but then you smile at me when I walk in the room.  And kiss me five times even when I don't ask, and snuggle me for an extra long time before bed.  And I know that we're a perfect match.

I love you to the moon and back.  God has truly, truly blessed me, and I am so thankful for every day that we spend together.

Happy birthday, Gibson!  I can't wait to see what the next year has in store for us.

  1. Oh man, you made me tear up with this. I feel about the same way with my little boy who will turn one in just over two months!
