Now you are one.

At first you were a tiny spark of a baby, now you’re a wonderful joyful storm. There’s no part of my life that you haven’t transformed simply by being.

Over the last 365 days I’ve spent at least 14 hours daily attending to your every need and yet it’s me who owes you everything.

I miss those newborn days so much, I already miss the you of yesterday. And yet, in the same breath, I’m amazed by and totally in love with the you that’s before me right now and the astounding you that is still to come.

Now you are one and I am one and everything has come together and I am so completely in love.

Happy Birthday darling and thank you for everything.

Now you are one.
