Happy 1st Birthday Sweet Boy

My Sweet Connor,

I cannot believe you are officially 1 year old today! This year has truly been the most amazing year of my life. I had no idea how much I was missing before we had you. I cannot imagine my life without you in it. You truly are the center of our universe. 

You have changed so much in a year. 

You are so smart; learning new things everyday! Your favorite words are doggy, Bah-Bah, Dada, Daddy, and Momma (only when you're upset). You also love to growl, it's hysterical! 

You are slowly but surely gaining confidence with walking. You've been cruising the furniture for awhile now but in the past 2 weeks you will actually let go and walk 3-6 steps towards wherever you're going before you drop down and crawl. It's amazing to see. Every night your Daddy and I sit on the floor and have you walk back and forth to us. You love it, you think it's the funnest game and we love to see you becoming a big boy right before our eyes.

You also love to eat, definitely our kid. You love to eat whatever we're eating and there's not much you don't like. Really I can only think of one thing...peaches. Doesn't matter if it's in baby food form or sliced fresh peaches. You hate them, no doubt about it, the gagging makes it very clear. Daddy is disappointed, peaches are his favorite. 

You love to run errands with me. We are constantly on the go; play dates, the park, grocery shopping, the bank, anything. And you love to interact with everyone we encounter, and they of course tell me you are the cutest thing! Which I already know. 

It's scary to think how fast this year has gone by. Is every year going to go by as fast? If so then you'll be in high school in what seems like 5 minutes. 

I know you have no idea that today is your birthday but in a couple years you will cherish this day. The day we celebrate YOU and only you. I will try to not cry each year when you blow out your candles but I can't make any promises. 

Everyday I love you more. I cherish our close bond. You are my son, my best friend, my reason for breathing.

I love you so much my sweet boy. Happy 1st Birthday! 

Love Forever,
