Happy Birthday ,Dearest one


Happy birthday, dearest one,
Sweet child of my heart!
We’ve become one family,
Of which you are a part.
And so I sing out equally
To all of those who are
Mine by blood or fortune blessed,
No more, no less my star!

We are one in love and joy,
In fondness and in worth,
And so as one we celebrate
This day, your day of birth!

~ Nicholas Gordon

I can’t believe how quickly the last 5 years have flown by. Yet, the first time I held this little guy in my arms (my first day of motherhood) I can remember it so clearly in my mind. Even after 40 hours of natural birthing (yes, really). I can remember not being able to sleep that first night with him by my side- just watching him in pure amazment and awe!

For all the things that make him all that he his, I love him a gazillion times. Because he makes my heart swell and melt, he tickles my funny bone and fills me with joy, he both amazes and astonishes me. He is spirited, dazzling and bright. When I look at him I see pure innocence, kindness and the most tender heart. For all this and MORE, I love him.
