Today is the day. My boy is one year old today! It has all happened so fast in our minds, when in reality it was a whole year haha. He has grown so much from the moment we first saw him!
He was the cutest little baby we have ever seen, partially because he was our own. But lets be honest, he’s a cutie!
He was small, but a healthy small. Everything about him did and still does light up our lives in a big way. We cannot imagine life without him. 😀
It is hard to believe that he was created by the two of us. We often just stare at him in amazement and wonder. The fact that we have the ability to create human life is something that can’t be fully understood until, you yourself create it.
There is no other feeling like it in the world. I’ve grown up knowing how and why people have children and that someday I too would want children of my own. There was never any real meaning or feeling behind those thoughts and words. I thought it was just something people did, because they were supposed to. It wasn’t until our baby boy was brought into this world that we started to realize the true impact he would have on our lives. I have never felt a bond or a closeness so strong before in my entire life!
To my son: Today at 5:20pm Everett Hugh you will be one year old exactly. Your mother and I love you very much and can’t wait to see all of the great things you do. We want to watch you grow, and learn all there is to learn, and see all there is to see. I’m sure we will be proud of the person you become. I’m sure there will be hard times, and things that we won’t see eye to eye on, but I hope you always know that we love you. We are not perfect, and for that I hope you can forgive us, but remember that we are only trying to do our best, to do what is best for you. We hope to raise you in a way that you can stand on your own two feet and take on the world armed with all of the tools you need to have a full and happy life. We love you more than anything! ❤ ❤
My wife had an impromptu photo shoot with Everett a few days ago. I mentioned it in an earlier post I’m sure. So what better time to share them with all of you then on his first birthday! 😀 Please enjoy these amazing photos!

Gosh I cannot get over this kid! (nor do I want to!)
