"And now you're my whole life...

Now you're my whole world..." - Brad Paisley ("Then")

Dear Sweet Cheeks,

Tomorrow you turn ONE. Tomorrow is your very first birthday, and as much as I deny it, I am a crying mess thinking about this letter. Truth is, Ive been putting it off in order to slow down time... Its not working. Ive been pleading with the clock to stall before it hits 4:57pm tomorrow. Please, time? I'm not ready.

 I hope that you always dance. When you hear music, you instantly start swaying and jumping around. You make up your own songs, and say "Uhmm" in the car when you want the radio turned on. I hope you always have that extra beat in your step.

I love the way you know exactly what you want and you do what it takes to get it. Grab this life with both hands and go for every dream in your heart. Never settle. Never accept a "No" that should be a "Yes". Life is everything that you make it... So make it perfect. Build a life that you love living. I will take over that part for the next 17 years, if you'll allow me to.

I love being your mom. I love being "Mammmaaamama". One year ago tomorrow is the day you made me a Mom. You are nothing short of everything I always wanted. You are so wanted. You are so loved. Happy 1st Birthday.

All of my love. Today & Always.
