for my treasure, who is one.

i can hardly believe it has almost been two years since the day i found out you were in my life. i was a hyperventilating mess of tears til daddy reminded me to breath, for your sake. i could hardly believe that moment i had always hoped for was staring me in the face on a random summer day. a normal thursday. i wondered who you were and who you would be. i loved you right away, in that first sweet moment. you were already mine.

it has been almost fifteen months since the first moment i saw your face. when you were growing inside of me i would try to imagine what you would look like. my mind's eye came nowhere close to imagining how truly wonderful God had knit you together in my womb. you are the reason that i am a mommy, you are my dream come true.

you are growing up so fast it seems. you are my happy sweetheart, my curious boy. you are tall and have bright eyes. you are smart and careful.

i love to think how you have been held and have gotten kisses every day since you have been born. that i even held you every day before. you are so loved.

you are the treasure of my heart.

you are my son.

as much as i love you (with all of my heart) i know that God loves you more than i could ever dream of loving you. i give you to Him every day, because He gave you to me.

i love because He first loved me.

i thank Jesus for entrusting me and daddy with your life.

what a precious gift you are.


Psalm 139: 13-16

For you created my inmost being;
you knit me together in my mother's womb.

I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
your works are wonderful,
I know that full well.

My frame was not hidden from you
when I was made in the secret place.
When I was woven together in the depths of the earth,

your eyes saw my unformed body.
All the days ordained for me
were written in your book
before one of them came to be.
