I can't believe I never posted these because they are so beautiful and making me tear up. We just celebrated this guy's First Birthday over the weekend and Caela just texted me to resend her the gallery. Upon uploading, I fell in love with these photos in a whole new light. It didn't seem that long ago, and in the grand scheme of things a year really isn't that long ago, but time is cruel and doesn't stop or wait. Second by second, moments come and go like a flash in the pan and suddenly those endless first days of becoming a mother are a distant memory (... did that really happen?) and your little one has grown exponentially into an entirely different human being. Many of my close friends are those whom I would have never expected to be, this Mama included. She was 17 when I met her and when she hired me. I can't believe it's been almost 10 years that have passed and that she has been there throughout my 3 pregnancies and spoiled my kids with gifts; Moses and Chloe were in her wedding party and in this past year it was my turn to witness her struggles and successes as she passed through the threshold into motherhood.
You guys have done an incredible job this year and I am so proud of you and so grateful to have you in my life. Congratulations on making it through the first year!
Happy Birthday Toto!
